Teaching Jobs in UAE.
Teaching jobs in the United Arab Emirates are high-paying, challenging, and very exciting. These positions are quite competitive. For the best chance, we recommend applying several months before your planned departure date - and uploading your current resume/CV when you apply.
Teachers can experience a wonderful work-life balance with spectacular beaches of white sand and blue water, improved even more by the guaranteed year-round sunshine. To escape the heat, teachers visit shopping malls, especially Manar Mall, which offer a blend of shopping, entertainment, dining and recreational options. If you feel like exploring beyond your immediate locality, it’s a good idea to join the UAE car culture and buy your own (air-conditioned!) car to get around.

Ras Al Khaimah (RAK for short) is one of UAE’s seven emirates, and has a capital city named after it, too. The city is nestled between the Hajjar Mountains on the East and the Persian Gulf on the West and has two main areas, Old Ras al Khaimah and Nakheel, on either side of a creek. The name of the city means “Top of the Tent” and is home to approx. 300,000 people, roughly made up of 50% Emirates and 50% expats. A lot of expats try and compare RAK to Dubai, but RAK has a lot to offer that Dubai doesn’t.
Ajman is the smallest of the seven emirates, located 25 minutes’ drive from Dubai International Airport. Approximately 95% of the population of the emirate resides in the city of Ajman, which forms part of the Dubai-Sharjah-Ajman metropolitan area. The emirate of Ajman provides beautiful beaches, solid transport infrastructure and a warm and welcoming culture. With busier and more crowded emirates adjacent, Ajman has become the place to get away and relax.
Sharjah is the third largest city, after Dubai and Abu Dhabi, in the ever-expanding United Arab Emirates! The emirate has a population of just over 800,000 and is the only one of the seven that lands on both the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman.
