A taste of our BDC culture

Bishop Druitt College as a Place to Work

BDC is a strong community with a global education perspective, offering the Higher School Certificate (HSC) and international experiences through our service learning programs, study tours and Round Square conferences.

Bishop Druitt College is the premier education institution in Coffs Harbour, New South Wales. Our K-12 campus is only 4 km from the city’s CBD. 

Staff members are required to participate willingly in the running of the extensive co-curricular program of the college in areas such as their faculty or stage, sport, community service or clubs. Staff also take leadership in the pastoral care of a group of students. Candidates may be required to take part in one of the year-level camps that are a normal part of the college’s outdoor education program.

Applicants should be vibrant, professional and dedicated people who are capable of inspiring and encouraging students of varying abilities both inside and outside the classroom.

Why live in Coffs Harbour?

The Coffs Coast is a vibrant place with many exciting opportunities and a strong sense of community. The outstanding beaches, recently redeveloped foreshore, impressive local sporting clubs and plenty of cultural dining and café options are what makes Coffs Harbour a very enjoyable place to live. Continued housing and infrastructure developments have made the city a popular choice not just for a holiday, but also for work.
