Support Positions

Within our dynamic and thriving school, a robust team of support staff manage much of the behind the scenes of daily BIS life. This includes colleagues who coach, mentor and teach our students as part of our Co-Curricular programme.

Our Admin Team is responsible for the administrative and operational aspects of the school. Our work aligns with BIS' mission statement and vision. We work in tandem with teachers and faculty leaders to inspire and empower students to achieve their unique potential.

After living abroad for 13 years, I really wanted to work again in an international environment. So I jumped at the chance to work at BIS -- it is the best combination possible of an international environment, a perfect setting close to the Rhine, a fantastic community feel, bright open buildings, friendly staff and children. My work positively impacts student learning. That's a great feeling.
