By joining our award-winning team of over 12,000 employees, you can work in state-of-the-art facilities alongside industry-renowned educators and leaders in some of the world's most desirable locations. We invest heavily in our team members who enjoy industry-leading professional development, exceptional career opportunities, and mobility across our group.


St. Peter’s International School is an international school that provides a competitive, high-quality response to the needs of a diverse population. Our fundamental principles are centered on the integral development of the child, valuing academic and professional success, based on attitudes, practices and values that contribute to the growth of the individual.


For nearly three decades, St. Peter's International School has been providing the very best in Local and International Education, combining excellent academic achievements within the Portuguese National Curriculum with that of the internationally accredited Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (iGCSE) and International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP), both of which are taught in English. Students begin their journey at St. Peter’s in Nursery (from 4 months) and the school provides a rigorous, challenging and modern curriculum for all students right through to 18 years of age. Students at St. Peter’s follow a National or International pathway to university and choose to study at universities both in Portugal and abroad. Our on-site boarding house is also an extension of St. Peter’s commitment to excellence and offers the flexibility of weekly or full boarding.

This is an exciting time to join the team as we are designing our growth roadmap and new staff will be able to actively participate in this project. While this is an organisation committed to academic excellence, we believe that this is only possible if we are also committed to the personal and professional growth of our staff.


All staff at St. Peter’s are actively involved in the pastoral life of the school. The role will also offer the opportunity for contribution to co-curricular clubs and enrichment.


To join our team, starting in January 2024 or sooner, we are looking for a well-qualified and talented Secondary Business and Economics Teacher, who has a passion for teaching and learning of both subjects. Training and experience of teaching IGCSE and IB Diploma Programme courses, whilst not essential, will be regarded positively. 


The successful candidate will have excellent subject knowledge, and the ability to make the subject come alive with inspirational and interactive lessons which challenge and support all pupils to secure the best possible outcomes. 


  • University degree in appropriate subject.

  • Excellent subject knowledge, ensuring good progress for all students.

  • A vision for what outstanding teaching and learning looks like.

  • Excellent organisational skills.

  • Adaptable teaching style incorporating feedback.

  • A positive attitude and approach to change and development.

  • Genuine care and attention for the highest standards of student welfare.

  • Confidence with use of ICT in teaching.

  • A continuous improvement mindset.


Inspired Education Group is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff, volunteers and other third parties to share this commitment. Safer recruitment practices and pre-employment background checks will be undertaken before any appointment is confirmed.
