Work at BIS


Teach at BIS

I’ve worked at many schools and I’ve never felt as supported and pushed forward as I have here at BIS.

Secondary English Teacher

Teaching posts at Bonn International School are generally for a minimum of two years and require a recognised teacher’s qualification. Fluent proficiency in the English language is mandatory. A strong commitment to the school’s mission, philosophy and beliefs supported by the International Baccalaureate curricula is essential.

At least two years experience (depending on the level of the job) is desirable, as is experience with International Baccalaureate Programmes. Experience of working in an international school would be an advantage, as is the ability to communicate well and adjust easily to a new environment.

We list open positions on this page as they become known and thus may change with time. If you are interested in applying to BIS as a faculty member, please check this page on a regular basis. 

​Interested teachers may also submit their applications for BIS to keep on file in case of a vacancy in these areas:

  • Cover Teacher - if you are a qualified teacher, who speaks fluent English, we offer substitute work on an adhoc basis.

  • Cover Teaching Assistant - we seek fluent English speakers willing to support our teachers in the classroom, working with a broad range of age groups, work on an adhoc basis.

Administration at BIS

There are currently no openings within the BIS administration. When openings occur, job descriptions and application instructions will be posted here.

Internships at BIS

Bonn International School offers a limited number of places for university students to do internships during the school year. Priority is given to people who are native language speakers and/or who have an international background.

Suitable candidates should (amongst other qualifications):

  • be in the process of studying to become a teacher
  • be available for at least 4 weeks
  • ideally have some teaching experience or similar work experience in the field of curricular/extracurricular education
  • live in the Bonn/Cologne area

If you are interested to apply as an intern, please contact our Human Resources Office via email. We provide you then with an easy and secure alternative to email to transfer your cv and resume. Please kindly note that Bonn International School can not offer any salary for the internship.

Apply for a Position

If you wish to apply for a position at Bonn International School, or have any question with regards to the positions listed, please contact our Human Resources Office via email. We ask all applicants to send us a letter of interest, a CV/resume and a list of three to five references (one of whom should be a current line manager/principal).
