If you are passionate about teaching young people, reach out to us!

POSITION 1 – TEACHER / AREA MANAGER

(Full Time or Permanent Part Time)

We have an exciting opportunity for an additional Teacher / Area Manager to join our management team.

The contact hours will be between 0.7 permanent part time to full time.

As Area Manager, you will report to the principal and be responsible for the management of either our South/East Melbourne territory or our North/West Melbourne territory which consist of approximately 6-8 venues each.

Time is split between attending & managing venues and teachers across your territory and working from our Malvern East office. If you live in the Western or Northern suburbs, a flexible work-from-home & work-from-office arrangement can be discussed if desired.

This is a hands-on & varied role with opportunity to add value including taking part in the strategic development of Super Speak as we continue to grow.

The role consists of:

  • Venue & class operational management
  • Teacher management & development
  • Teaching
  • Office support & administration
  • Enrolment management
  • Teacher & parent communication
  • Curriculum development

ABOUT YOU:

You are passionate about teaching either drama, speech & drama, primary education or performing arts to children.

You may be one of the below:

  • someone with experience teaching children aged 6-14; or
  • someone with a natural aptitude for teaching with experience attending drama, performing arts or speech & drama classes through your teen years; or
  • a performer or actor with teaching experience looking to make a change away from performing and into a more stable long term employment opportunity; or
  • a primary teacher, secondary teacher or drama / performing arts teacher seeking a change away from the schooling system into a more entrepreneurial, hands-on and practical role

You will have flexibility with when you work each week to reflect the needs of your territory. For example, for weeks that you need to be at your venues, you will spend more time attending your venues in the afternoon/evenings and will work less time in the office. For other weeks when your venues & teachers are settled, you will spend more time in the office during business hours and less time at the venues.

You will be comfortable being “hands-on” to ensure your territory is operating smoothly and that your teachers are well supported. You will travel between your venues within your territory as required.

As well as the above, you will be someone that:

  • has a fun, professional nature and able to relate well to children and parents
  • has excellent verbal communication skills, organizational skills and a “can do” attitude
  • is self motivated with a history of exceeding expectations
  • prides themselves on their work ethic, reliability and punctuality
  • has a current Work With Children Check card or a VIT registration
  • has a reliable car & driver’s license
  • has a proficiency in Microsoft word & a professional phone manner

It is desirable but not essential for you to have a tertiary qualification (either arts, performance or teaching) or an equivalent professional experience or significant other training – ie. in speech & drama, acting or drama schooling throughout teen years.

Please only apply for this role if you have the view of being able to work at Super Speak for at least 3 years
