As an IB world school with the motto of “Truly Swiss and truly international”, Le Régent is one of Switzerland's most recent and fastest-growing international boarding and day schools, and, since 2019, Le Rosey’s “sister school”. Founded in 2015 it has grown from 20 to nearly 200 students aged 3 to 18 from 40 different nations.
Students are educated in an ultra-modern campus in the heart of the Valais Alps in the stunning ski resort of Crans-Montana.
Le Régent follows a rigorous academic programme in English in preparation for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme and its own diploma, the Régent Graduation Diploma, while nurturing the individual talents of each student with its diverse extracurricular offering, including sports, arts, music and mountain activities.
We are looking for an inspiring and full-time Head of Music to invigorate and lead the musical life of a young, ambitious and growing school.
Following the UK’s exit from the EU, the Agreement on the Free Movement of Persons (AFMP) between Switzerland and the EU no longer applies to the UK, and UK nationals are considered third-state nationals (who, contrary to most third-state nationals, do not require a visa in order to enter Switzerland). Unfortunately, regulations to obtain a work permit are considerably tighter for third-state nationals than they are for most Europeans; getting a job offer is just one step of many. Preference has always been given to Swiss nationals, foreign nationals with a Swiss residence permit (C, B, L, S, or F ) and EU/EFTA citizens/permit holders, where candidates are equally qualified; unfortunately, this rule now applies to UK nationals.
Vacant posts are registered with our regional employment centre and advertised via the European Employment System (EURES), on social media, on our school website and on this platform.
We reserve the right to appoint the right candidate ahead of the closing date. Appointment to take effect from September 2021.
