Why not? Discover a world of exciting career prospects through the Council of International Schools (CIS)! As a not-for-profit, membership organisation, CIS provides teacher recruitment and accreditation services for 660 schools located all over the world. At a CIS-organised recruitment fair, a selection of international school representatives interview qualified teacher candidates for positions within their schools.

For those with a sense of adventure, a career in international education can be a uniquely rewarding experience, both professionally and personally. Broaden your horizon and become immersed in a different culture and environment. You will no doubt make many new friends and forge life-lasting ties as you join an engaged global community of educators. International schools, by mission and by model, promote international awareness, knowledge, understanding and inclusion. You can keep up-to-date with current educational practices by participating in rich and varied professional development programs which are integral benefits of working at an international school as are modern teaching resources and technology. International schools offer a comprehensive salary and benefits package that may provide higher remuneration than that offered by national or state schools.

The CIS London recruitment fair is a well-established, respected and successful event that has been running for over thirty years, attracting a diverse mix of schools and teachers. Only schools meeting our rigorous membership criteria and standards may utilise our recruitment services so you can be confident of engaging with quality, reputable schools.

In order to register and participate in a recruitment fair, you will need to create an account on our website and complete an application form. A professional file must then be established and approved. For details on the criteria and application documentation, please view the teacher recruitment pages of our website. We can only consider applicants once they have had 1-2 years of current teaching experience so, please bear CIS in mind for the future.

We have a dedicated and friendly team of professionals available to answer your questions and advise; send us an email at teacherrecruitment@cois.org
