FIS has dedicated faculty and staff 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. In our search we use Global Recruitment Collaborative, International School Services, Schrole, Search Associates, and UNI Overseas Teaching Service.
Recruitment generally begins in November for positions for the following school year, but applications can be submitted when the list of open positions at both campuses is made available.
Frankfurt International School is committed to ensuring the safeguarding and wellbeing of its students and expects all faculty, staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The recruitment process at FIS is carried out in accordance with recommendations of the International Task Force on Child Protection, and includes rigorous background checks prior to appointment.
