I can't tell your nationality but if you are British or speak with a good British accent, I guess your chances will be quite high cos this country goes for most things foreign. Attracting foreign talent is a national agenda.

I suggest you write in directly to MDIS and other institutions.

Just for your reference if you are seeking employment at one of the polys as a lecturer. And for everyone else, a reference to compare with the new salary framework (which should be announced soon)...

Min ($) Bar / Max ($) Job Grade Academic/Management
14,080 18,770 / 21,120 PAX 1 Principal Lecturer/Deputy Principal;Senior Director
10,520 14,500/ 16,490 PAX 2 Principal Lecturer/D; DD
6,620 9,140/ 10,400 PAX 3 Senior Lecturer/DD; AD; Mgr; Dty Mgr
4,580 7,030/ 8,250 PAX 4 Senior Lecturer/Mgr, Dty Mgr; AM
3,470 5,320/ 6,240 PAX 5 Lecturer
2,150 4,160/ 5,160 PAX 6 Lecturer

A lecturer wouldnt bring you much money.... Giving priv tuition earns much more( if you can bring in the sales/student).

I suggest you try teaching part time first, because sometimes I feel like squeezing the lazy poly students' heads off for asking obvious questions.

Note: No student's heads are squeezed off in the making of this comment

Wow not bad, it looks better than what I expected. I have applied for an opening as a Senior Academic in RP, is that the same as Senior Lecturer PAX4 that is stated above?

Thanks for any help rendered!

Is the payscale standard across all polys?

Yes. Pay scale is the same across all polytechnics.

I reckon a senior academic at RP should be equivalent to a senior lecturer at the other polys. However, most first-time lecturers are not hired at PAX4.

I work in a poly and I must say the numbers you see in the pay scale are indeed what the lecturers get- but there is a catch.. When you join as a lecturer for the first time, you will be put in a PAX6 (if you dont have any previous work exp or lecturing exp) and if you have less than 2-3 years of work exp, you will be put in the higher bracket of PAX6.. So with a masters degree and 1-2 years of work exp, you would earn around $2600-$2700/month with meagre bonus (may be 1.75 month bonus) and the yearly increments come by reallllllllllly slow and it would be at least 10 years before you reach the $5k bracket..

I am employed by one of the polys as a PAX4 lecturer. I had little teaching experience prior to joining the poly but my work experiences made up for it. And a recent job title change placed me as a senior lecturer.

The main thing is the poly recruiting culture is they want your industrial experience. And depending on your field (the demand supply thingy), you may have some negotiating power...
