Teaching vacancies are generally identified in December and most of our recruiting is done through websites (such as Search Associates, CIS, TES) and recruiting fairs. We do occasionally hire at other times. Interviews may be via Skype or face-to-face either at ICS or at a recruitment fair.

For substitute teachers, please note: we can only consider candidates living in the immediate Zurich area with eligible work/residency permits.

For an open inquiry, please submit your CV here.

We live in a village in the countryside, a short drive from the school as you head towards the mountains; sometimes I have to pull off to the side of the road and pinch myself because I can't believe I live in such a beautiful place.
