Open Positions

Teaching posts at Bonn International School require a recognized teacher’s qualification. Two years’ or more experience is desirable, as is experience with International Baccalaureate Programmes. Initial contracts are usually given for a period of two years.

All faculty speak English with mother-tongue proficiency. A strong commitment to the school’s mission and vision as well as to the ideals espoused through the International Baccalaureate curricula is essential. Experience of working in an international school would be an advantage.

We list open positions as they become known; these change with time. If you are interested in applying to BIS as a faculty member, please check this page on a regular basis.  At this time, there are no openings for faculty positions.

BIS employs teachers to cover for faculty off for professional development, illness or personal reasons. If you are a qualified teacher who is fluent in English, you are encouraged to submit an application as a cover teacher. We welcome applications for this work throughout the year and will keep your information on file for when there is an opening.

The administrative staff at BIS is 35 people strong and supports the school community in many ways, from accounting to zebra crossings. At this time, there are no open positions in the BIS administration.
