  • Director job for Redwood Nursery seen advertised, with salary offered £34,000 to £40,000 (AED 194,000-228,000) (presumably per year, about AED 16,000-19,000 per month). Not clear if position is for the Redwood Nursery Khalifa City branch or the new Saadiyat Island branch. Advertisement says nursery is for 2 months to 4 years old, and applicants require EYFS experience - which might refer to Saadiyat Island branch (Khalifa City branch is Montessori and Reggio Emilia curriculum, accepts children 4 months to 4 years old). See Redwood Nursery Khalifa City for more details and contact information.
