FIS has a dedicated faculty who create A World of Opportunities for students from every corner of the globe. Our inquiry-based teaching and learning practices help young people make connections within units of study and across academic disciplines. We welcome your interest in joining them.
We actively seek qualified teachers from around the world who wish to help us fulfill our school's mission. Recruitment generally begins in January for positions for the following school year, but applications can be submitted when the list of open positions at both campuses is made available.
Because a personal interview is required prior to hiring, it is beneficial for interested applicants from outside Germany to register and attend a job fair. Interview appointments can sometimes be made in advance through the divisional principals or with our school staff directly at the recruiting conference.
Frankfurt International School typically attends a number of hiring fairs in the UK and United States. Updates on attendance will be made in the winter of 2017.
Qualified applicants must register/apply using our online application process. Please do not send general inquiries.
