If you are seeking a non-teaching role, and are not looking to work directly with children, consider these opportunities:


The Department of Education’s Division of School Facilities (DSF) is dedicated to providing a safe, clean and comfortable environment that is conducive in educating and nurturing our children in the most economical and efficient manner possible.
