Emanuel School – a co-educational Jewish Day School – is a thriving place of learning. Students from Pre-school to Year 12 learn, play and flourish on our beautiful heritage-listed campus in the Eastern suburbs of Sydney, Australia.  Our motto, Mind Spirit Being, encapsulates our school. We aim to open the mind, awaken the spirit and engage the whole being within a culture of excellence, respect and the desire to strive for one’s best. 

Why work at Emanuel?

Emanuel School has been recognised as a 5-Star Employer of Choice by The Educator magazine. This prestigious award is testament to the fact that, by working at Emanuel you will become part of a community that is supportive, caring and respectful.

We know that you are not just looking for a job, but a place to grow, develop and shine. We also know that while we do offer a salary above the Multi-Enterprise Agreement level, you’re looking for more than just money.

We also know that your worklife balance is important to you. At Emanuel, not only do teachers (0.8FTE and above) have fortnightly ‘Do Not Disturb’ periods, they also won’t be asked to participate in weekend sport.

When you join our team, you can also expect:

  • professional development and leadership opportunities to help develop your mind, spirit and being.
  • additional leave for Jewish High Holidays. In 2024, this will be an extra eight days of paid leave during term time. 
  • a comprehensive staff wellbeing program, including access to the School’s gym and weekly staff fitness sessions with a qualified trainer and optional annual flu shots.
  • access to up to four confidential counselling sessions for yourself and immediate family each year via our EAP provider.
  • time to get to know each other, with events and activities  planned by our Social Committee.
  • where applicable, discounted school fees to staff who have children enrolled at our School.

Emanuel School is a diverse and inclusive workplace, and we encourage people from all religions and backgrounds to join our team.

Children’s wellbeing is everything to us

Emanuel School is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people. This is the primary focus of our care and decision-making. Emanuel has zero tolerance for child abuse and our culture is built around an environment that enables children to thrive.
