a place to empower students

FIS has dedicated colleagues 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 the Diversity Collective, DIVERSITY in ED, the 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.

Equity, Justice and Belonging

Equity, Justice and Belonging (EJB) are foundational principles at Frankfurt International School. As such, we seek to attract candidates that will contribute to the growing diversity of voices, backgrounds and perspectives in our community. FIS welcomes applicants from all backgrounds, including those traditionally underrepresented in the international school community.
