The benefits of working in an international school

  • Generous salary (tax free in some locations)
  • Free or subsidised accommodation
  • Utility bill allowance
  • End of contract bonus
  • Annual return air fares (and luggage allowance)
  • Pension contributions

Our clients vary greatly from small private schools specifically for the employees of one company to large British schools of 2000 plus pupils.

Class sizes in international schools are often small (15 - 25 pupils) and academic standards can be very high.

  • Advance and develop your career
  • Experience alternative cultures
  • Take on teaching and leadership positions
  • Attend a one day introduction to IBDP Curriculum Courses


"The team at ITN Mark International was instrumental in helping me find my dream job and I highly recommend the company. My consultant is an extremely proactive person who actively recruits using the latest networking sites - we got in touch via LinkedIn. No sooner had I sent my CV than I was being lined up for interviews with prospective schools in countries that I had expressed an interest in working in. I was given plenty of helpful support and guidance prior to my interview and not long afterwards I was offered a position in a wonderful school."
