Closing date:

Institut Le RoseySwitzerland

Date posted:
Start date: September 2020
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: Competitive
Contract term: Permanent
Suitable for NQTs: No

For September 2020 we have a full-time post available for a secondary teacher of English, ideally up to and including the IB Diploma Programme at Higher and Standard level.  The successful candidate will be a graduate in English Literature and a voracious reader who is collaborative, experienced, adaptable and willing to teach authors ranging from Geoffrey Chaucer to Eleanor Davis. 

Le Rosey is a boarding school and the post will probably be residential. On-campus accommodation is provided and conditions of work are attractive. The successful applicant will be expected to play an active role in boarding life. Further details at  http://www.rosey.ch/information/employment/    

Only online applications will be considered. Applications must include 3 references, one of whom must be your current or most recent employer.

Institut Le Rosey is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all its staff to share this commitment. All new employees are required to undertake a security clearance, which includes providing criminal records reports as well as a special excerpt from the Swiss criminal records for people working with children.

To our great regret, changes to Swiss law have made it extremely difficult for international schools like Le Rosey to obtain work permits for non-EU citizens. For this reason, applicants without EU passports or Swiss work permits are advised that this greatly reduces their chances of being put on a short list. We will, nevertheless, consider all such applications seriously; and if the nature of the post and the quality of the application make us optimistic about the outcome of what can be a long administrative process, we are ready to undertake it.

Closing date for receipt of applications: 28 February 2020. Further details will be sent to all suitable candidates and interviews will take place in March and (if necessary) April.
