How to find international school jobs

For more than 40 years, the way to find jobs at international schools has been the same. Until now. Searchality has arrived.

DIRECT TO SCHOOLS.

Most established schools have sections on their web sites focused on employment. Some school groups like GEMS and Nord Anglia can centralize their hiring

  • School groups
  • Specific target schools
  • Schools can’t respond to everyone
  • No feedback

JOB FAIRS FOR SCHOOLS.

Search Associates and ISS are the two biggest operators of international school job fairs.

  • If timing and location work, these can be great
  • Decreasing % of schools represented
  • High costs for membership, travel and accomodation 
  • Rigid timings

APPLY TO SCHOOL JOB ADS.

Depending on where you are in the world, there are some key web sites and traditional media that schools use to advertise their available positions.
TES,  TIC,  TIE, and  Guardian Jobs are all good examples of these.

  • Costs to apply are low
  • Thousands of jobs posted 
  • Good way to get a sense of the market
  • Multiple applications, multiple platforms
  • No replies, no feedback

RECRUITMENT CONSULTANTS.

Recruiters are contracted and paid for by schools. TeachAway, TIC, eTeach, TeachingAbroad, TeacherHorizons are a very small number of well-known agencies in a huge global marketplace.

  • Low costs for candidates
  • Recruiters provide feedback
  • Dozens of recruiters focusing on different regions/curricula
