If you want to help shape our internationally-minded students into global citizens who lead lives of purpose and meaning, you have come to the right place. Our academic and co-curricular programmes nurture each child's social, intellectual, moral and physical development in alignment with our Missions and Values as the oldest international school in Germany.
From 20 different countries around the world, our teaching faculty and staff promote the ideals of international mindedness and learning as a joyous endeavour.Alan Knobloch, Head of School-
At ISH we foster a welcoming and collegial working environment where teachers support each other in a spirit of collaboration. We offer good working conditions in a state-of the art facility at the heart of Hamburg's green belt, a regionally competitive salary according to the qualifications and experience and personal development possibilities . And of course, this is the opportunity to work and live in Hamburg, one of the world's most liveable cities.
ISH is a welcoming and inclusive community. As an International school, we love creating opportunities for our community members by connecting people from widely diverse backgrounds, perspectives and geographies. We also want to have a faculty that mirrors the diversity of our student body. So, being diverse and inclusive isn’t just something we strive for, it is who we are, and part of what we do each and every single day. We want to ensure that as a member of our staff, you feel ISH is a place where you feel safe, included, and that you have the opportunity to bring your unique self to work.
As such, all educators with the relevant qualifications and experience, including those who identify as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of colour), educators with disabilities, LGBTQ+ educators, and others of diverse backgrounds, are encouraged to apply to join the ISH Community.
Professional development is a key element of ongoing teacher growth and training, and we hold the idea of life-long learning in high regard: ISH pioneered in Germany the coaching model of professional development in Literature and Math.Jaki Graham, Early years & Junior School Principal-
