We recruit teachers with an outstanding record of achievement, an innovative mindset, an understanding of the power of technology, and an exemplary commitment to international education.

Then Zurich International School may be the right fit for you. Integrity, fairness and compassion are important character standards for everyone at ZIS.



Learning is a shared responsibility and at Zurich International School, we challenge our students to exceed their own expectations - and ourselves to ensure their success. To achieve this, we need to be open to risk, change and innovation. Do you feel the same way about learning? Then ZIS may be the right fit for you.



Do you lead by example, seeking best practice and educational innovation? Consider how your action will have a positive impact on others? At Zurich International School, we enable faculty and staff, as well as our students, to become confident and responsible leaders,with a clear sense of direction and purpose. Are you the kind of educator we're looking for?
