The American International School of Rotterdam (AISR) is dedicated to the growth and advancement of a qualified and skilled team of teachers and administrative support staff who are committed to the mission, philosophy and objectives of the school. Recruiting for the new school year typically begins mid-way through the current school year and is initiated with the posting of vacancies on this page. There may also be occasions on which applications are invited for teaching and administrative positions during the school year. Applications from teachers with advanced degrees, IB, IPC or IMYC training and/or previous experience at other international schools providing education in the English language will be given priority.
Confirmation of Applications
Due to the number of applications received each day, we are not always able to respond personally to all applications and inquiries.
At AISR we pride ourselves on ensuring that all of our students are safe and protected. To this end, AISR conducts background checks on all full- and part-time faculty, staff, coaches and substitutes.
Potential applicants to AISR are welcome to email or post unsolicited applications for consideration for future positions; however, applicants should refrain from ‘drop-in’ visits and calls to our campus for the purpose of employment, inquiries or application submissions. All applications are accepted by mail and email only (email preferred). Applicants will be contacted by email in the event that a suitable position becomes available for further discussion of the application process. Applications will be maintained on file for a period of one year; consequently, it is not necessary to send multiple unsolicited applications within the same year.
Administrative Support Positions
Administrative support positions in the school include positions such as the school nurse, admissions officer, accountant, facilities and maintenance staff and secretarial staff. Vacancies for these positions are typically posted on this page and/or in local newspapers. Due to the relatively low frequency of vacancies in these areas, unsolicited applications are not maintained on file long-term; therefore, interested applicants are advised to check this page on a regular basis for employment opportunities.
AISR maintains a database of teachers living in the greater-Rotterdam area who are willing to provide teaching services on short notice in the event of teacher illness or leave. Interested applicants should send their resumes, teaching qualifications, professional references and a short cover letter in English by email to the address below.
