Tony-Richards2A great opportunity: why you are needed
There has never been a better time for teachers to find careers in international schools. The number of expatriates working overseas is booming. Developing countries are allowing their citizens to attend international schools. The result? More schools being built, more student places being created and more good teachers needed. However, as recruiting agencies proliferate, the need for objective guidance has never been more important.

Eyes wide open
We help teachers take charge of the process of their international application. We are not a recruiting agency and we will not steer you in any one direction. We will help you understand what your options are, and where to look, drawing on our experience as international school leaders recruiting staff for the last 20 years. If we recommend an agency or recruiting database, we will know them. We will only accept advertising from companies in whom we have confidence.
