HI.

I have received an email from a recruiter about a teaching position at Al-Ruwad Elementary School in Abu Dhabi. I have searched the net for information on this school, but I did not find anything.

If anyone has information on this school, please pass it on.

Thanks,
JB

As I always admit, I know little or nothing about particular primary and secondary schools in the Gulf. But, I do know that I have never heard anything good about agencies and recruiters outside of a few who cover Saudi Arabia.

Be very wary if you are unable to communicate with current or former teachers to see what the place is really like.

To be honest, I would never have considered even talking to a recuiter, nor would I have ever taken a job through one. So, I could not give any advice on this. Sorry.

The decent ME employers don't use recruiters, in my experience. (again, KSA is slightly different situation)
