St. George’s the British International School, Cologne, Germany. 

St. George’s is a state-approved (staatlich anerkannte), co-educational, non denominational school which seeks to provide the best of the English and international education systems for children aged 2 to 18 (Nursery - IB). We achieve high academic standards by means of small classes, dedicated staff, and a flexible timetable, tailored to the needs of the individual child.

Founded as an English international family institution in 1985 in Cologne, St. George’s cherishes the friendly atmosphere and international spirit that it has successfully fostered amongst its staff and pupils. Our vision has now become so successful that we are now a group of three schools located in Cologne, Duisburg-Düsseldorf and Munich.

We are looking for an experienced Accountant (m/f/d) to join our growing team. Due to the nature of the role only applicants with a strong command of the German language, and an understanding of the German taxation system will be considered.

Cologne-Bonn airport is located only 20km from the school, with many daily flights to the UK, and a highspeed rail service connects Cologne to London, via Brussels.
