We are looking for a well-qualified and inspirational subject teacher who empathises with the academic and holistic ethos found at top British International Schools. You must have a passion for being fully committed to making learning magical, providing individualised pastoral care for every student and a varied and genuinely rewarding enrichment curriculum. Previous overseas experience is not essential. However, the desire to work in a genuinely international community is.

Jerudong International School students’ motto is “Togetherness and Community”. Central to this is our Polio Points reward system. Year 7 to 13 students are challenged to act in a way that goes beyond what we would normally ask of them to do. The reward system is based on our six student aims of Leadership, Resilience, Communication, Thinking, Engagement and Integration. They are then rewarded with a Polio Point (as part of the international End Polio movement), which directly contributes to a donation to UNICEF.

We are on a journey towards becoming a truly sustainable school community, and the Green Flag Eco-School initiative has been integral to this. Our aim is to ensure that in every area of the school, we think more carefully about the impact that we are having on our own local community and in the world around us. Beyond this, we encourage the students to think beyond the school campus and look at how their actions can have global effects. The Sustainable Development Goals is a blueprint to achieve a more equitable, peaceful and sustainable world for everyone. The school aims to inspire our students to be socially responsible, global citizens equipped to deal with the challenges of the 21st century.


To apply, please complete the TES online application Form to be found on the Employment section of the school website (here) where you will also find further details of the post.

Please ensure your CV includes a recent photo and full contact details, including email address, of two professional referees (one should be the applicant’s current and most recent employer). CVs without an accompanying application form will not be accepted. Applicants submitting an incomplete application form will not be shortlisted.

The closing date for applications is Friday, 24th November 2023, although early applications would be most appreciated. Initial interviews will be by Google Meet or Zoom, followed by face-to-face interviews in London, where location permits.

Applicants who have not been contacted by Friday, 15th December 2023, can assume that on this occasion they have been unsuccessful and are sincerely thanked by the School for their interest.

Safer Recruitment

The safe recruitment of all colleagues (including consultants/ contractors/ supply teachers, activity providers and volunteers) in schools is the first step to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children in education.

At Jerudong International School, we ensure the practice of safe recruitment in checking and recording the suitability of staff and volunteers to work with children.

As part of the safe recruitment procedure, we will require the following information prior to starting work at JIS:

  • Up-to-date police records from a teacher’s country of origin and previous country of employment.
  • Two references, one of which must be from the current employer. If a teacher has worked in two or more schools, within 5 years, telephone contact will be made with those schools to ask why the teacher is leaving and if there were any concerns of a safety nature with children.
