University College School

Teacher of Economics

We are looking for a full-time Teacher of Economics to join a highly successful department at this leading London day school.

The current vacancy is a permanent full-time post, beginning in September 2023. It offers an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic teacher to develop, or perhaps to begin, their career in a congenial, lively, and innovative setting as part of a highly successful department. They will be a strong graduate, with a deep passion for Economics, and the ability to convey this effectively to A level pupils.

We therefore expect to appoint a teacher who combines a strong intellectual interest in Economics with an imaginative and flexible approach to classroom teaching, wise and sensitive in their planning of lessons, rigorous and friendly in their delivery. The successful candidate will be personally committed to developing a genuine and lasting enthusiasm for Economics among pupils, as well as in preparing them for exam success.

Offering, as it does, the chance to work within a vibrant department in a high-achieving and distinctive school, this post should be equally attractive to a serving teacher seeking wider experience or to an ECT hoping for the best professional start to their career (UCS offers full statutory induction). We also welcome equally applications from teachers in the maintained sector and the independent sector. We also welcome applications from good Economics graduates not currently working in education who are considering a career change.

A willingness to contribute to the extra-curricular life of the school will be an additional and important recommendation. We expect all of our teachers to be Form Tutors.
