Teacher of Business Studies/Economics

Location: Hereford  

Description: Full time 

We are looking for a well-qualified, dynamic Business Studies and Economics teacher to start in September 2017. The successful candidate will be able to inspire enthusiasm for the study of both Business Studies and Economics in our students at A-level, as well as help build upon the department’s strong academic record.
It is likely that he/she will be responsible for teaching Business Studies at A-level, while also contributing to the teaching of AS Economics.

He/she will need to have first rate interpersonal skills, with the ability to work well and communicate effectively with pupils, colleagues and parents. In addition, energy, vision and high expectations are essential qualities in this position. This is a full-time, permanent post. 

In 2014 the School was inspected by ISI and received the top grading of “excellent” in each of the eight categories. 

Hereford Cathedral School has a well-established and thriving extra-curricular programme, and the successful applicant will be expected to play an active part in this.
