Recruitment process:

Candidates should send their CV, complete with references to [email protected]. They can expect a reply within 2 - 3 school days.

Based on a candidate's application package including CV, an initial skype interview is scheduled. The main purpose of the talk is to establish that the teacher and the school are a good match. These talks typically last 15 minutes and candidates are asked questions on core issues such as Values, Approaches to Teaching and Learning, etc.

If, after the first talk, there are indications the teacher and ISB are well-matched, a second, more formal interview is arranged and candidates references are contacted.

The second interview typically lasts at least 30 minutes and are held with the Head of ISB and another member of the Leadership team. More detailed questions about T&L will be asked and candidates will also be asked about their previous experiences. Candidates are also given time to ask any questions they like.

At the end of the second talk, a timeline will be agreed during which the candidates will be informed of the school's decision (or further information will be exchanged).  If an offer is made, the HR secretary will send a sample contract within 24 hours and the school will request that an answer be provided by a specific date.

If the candidate accepts the position, the contracts are signed and other relevant processes are initiated.
