How to apply:
1. In the first instance send your resume and letter of application to email@example.com
2. Suitable candidates will then be contacted by a member of the HR department for a telephone interview. Here you will have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have and to also gain further insight into our expectations of you. If both sides are agreeable, an offer of employment will then follow and the company HR department will take over all aspects of bringing the new instructor to Kuwait.
* Within the first 2-4 months instructors will be issued with Kuwaiti residency and are then able to sponsor wives to come and join them. The Company will assist in obtaining dependant visas; however, the instructor is responsible for the dependant's visa costs (150kd one-off payment per person) and flight costs. I should stress that no-one working for our company has ever had a dependant refused entry.
Kuwait is safe and there are thousands of Brits, Americans and Europeans here teaching and working in other sectors, this means the possibilities of a reasonable social life are good. There are plenty of groups, parties, sport centers, beaches, dive sites, shopping centers, restaurants, weekend trips abroad. It's an affluent place and you can save good money.
