Rural and Remote Opportunities

Experience country and make a difference.

Would you like to live and experience life as a teacher in a remote and rural school? For many of our teachers, a country posting has been extremely rewarding. From Esperance in the south to Wyndham in the north-east, there are many opportunities to work in rural and remote Catholic schools in Western Australia. There are 27 Catholic schools in the Bunbury region alone, 11 schools in the Geraldton diocese and 13 in the Kimberley.

Vacancies are posted on individual school websites and the CEWA website. Applications are submitted directly to the Principal.

Kimberley Calling Program

Working within the remote Kimberley region provides many opportunities, challenges and experiences. Kimberley Calling is our recruitment program designed to provide information to potential employees about working in this region.

It assists principals in Kimberley Catholic schools in recruiting staff, with initial interviews held in Perth, Melbourne and Sydney. A strong focus for all Kimberley Catholic schools is improving the literacy and numeracy outcomes of students, and therefore demonstrated expertise in these areas is highly desirable.

Financial incentives, including relocation expenses, an annual service bonus, increased long-service leave and Christmas vacation travel are paid to staff in some of these locations.

All teaching positions at our Kimberley schools are filled through the Kimberley Calling program. If you would like to teach in the Kimberley region, please complete and submit the expression of interest form via the link below. For more information please download The Kimberley Calling Program Timeline or attend one of our Kimberley Calling information sessions.
