Working at St Mark's

St Mark’s is committed to being a vibrant professional community that supports its people and their sense of belonging, connectedness, and shared purpose. The over 200 St Mark’s teachers and other staff members are highly-valued, knowledgeable, expert professionals. The School’s positive work environment attracts and retains high quality staff by fostering professionalism, commitment, loyalty, Christian values, a high standard of pastoral care, and by providing above Award conditions. Teachers contribute to the pastoral and cocurricular programs offered to St Mark’s students.

St Mark’s fosters a culture of continuous improvement and lifelong learning for all through staff reflection, goal setting, feedback, collaboration, and investment in professional learning. An exciting suite of opt-in school-based professional learning options are offered to teaching staff. These have been co-designed with staff and are based in Martin Seligman’s PERMA framework, to nurture staff (P) positive emotions, (E) engagement in valuable work, (R) relationships, (M) meaning in their work, and (A) achievements and feelings of accomplishment. With a focus on staff voice, choice, and ownership, these options include mentoring, coaching, action research, leadership development, a generous professional learning scholarship (that includes the possibility to support staff in post-graduate study), and participation in strategic project groups.

The School, as part of its strategic focus area of Holistic Wellbeing for all, is committed to supporting the multidimensional wellbeing of all staff in a range of ways, including through initiatives that sustain mental and physical health. Staff appreciate morning tea provided on staff days, refreshments provided during parent teacher interviews, the onsite coffee van, and the pop-up coffee shop offered by our Senior Home Economics students. Specific benefits for staff include salary packaging, generous paid parental leave, generous long service leave entitlements, an active Staff Social Club that organises regular social activities, free influenza vaccinations, and Notebook computers and iPads for relevant staff. Staff are additionally offered periodic opportunities to engage in complimentary health and wellbeing activities, and in service to others.
