We are building a team of teachers, leaders and administrative professionals to support the learning mission and vision of the school.  

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-

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.
