Do you support searches for leadership/admin roles as well as more junior staff?

Yes, Searchality helps international schools recruit for any level of role. Schools can define a broad range of criteria when they search for candidates, whether these are for senior leadership/administrative roles; or for more junior staff including those just starting out in their teaching career. (Of course schools can define any quantity of different roles based on different criteria. Importantly this doesn't cost a school any more. There are never any per-candidate hiring fees as we have designed Searchality to be different from the usual school recruitment approach). On the candidate side, when you complete your profile you can build [...]

Do you run recruitment events or job fairs for international school teachers?

Searchality do not run recruitment events or job fairs. Searchality is different. We make life simpler for schools and teachers by using the power of technology to match great candidates with motivating roles. We believe that with the technology available now, attending job fairs can be unnecessarily expensive and time consuming for schools and candidates. We aim to deliver effective, quality recruitment at high speed and low cost, using our Searchality solutions platform, combined with the abilities of easily available video conferencing (such as Skype).

How can I find a job in a specific country?

For a teacher this makes it simple to find the perfect job for you. For schools we remove the complexity of finding and filtering the best [...]

Can I have an interview on Skype?

Yes, we think video conferencing (such as Skype) is a great solution for international schools and staff. This is why we ask for your Skype ID in your profile information. For most teaching and administrative jobs our school clients tell us they would prefer to interview people by Skype (or similar). We have also offered you the option to upload a photo and video of yourself to add further information to your profile. For some senior roles you should also expect to be invited to a face-to-face discussion if you reach the final shortlist. We do not believe that [...]

How are references collected?

We use a customized "blind" reference system to ensure confidentiality and reliability. You can see more about this system here. The Searchality system will annually validate and update the references and contact details for you. (So candidates and schools don't have to do this manually).

How quickly can I expect to find a job?

The hiring for international schools is year-round, and very fluid. While most hires are made between January and March (for jobs to start in August), there is a lot of recruitment that occurs outside this peak period. There are also a number of schools running on the southern hemisphere calendar (January-November), or schools that have emergency recruitment needs. If you are signing up within the peak months (December-March), we would expect you to receive matches/opportunities reasonably quickly.  If you are signing up before or after these months, it might take a little bit more time to find the right opportunity.

How much does it cost for annual membership?

Our pricing will always be low as we believe schools and staff have been charged far too much for recruitment services for far too long. Our approach is different. You can find out more about how we help teachers, leaders and specialists here and our support for schools here. You can see our latest low prices for candidates and for schools on our pricing pages.

Do I need a degree to teach at international schools?

Different schools and countries will have different requirements. However, it will be virtually impossible to get a job in an international school without a relevant degree or teaching certification: either the school will require one, or the country will require one for you to qualify for a visa. Some schools or countries may accept non-teaching degrees, but this is on a case-by-case basis.
