IES Östersund is now recruiting qualified English speaking teachers, across a range of subjects to start with the 2021/22 school year.

Internationella Engelska Skolan Östersund opened in August 2020, with 11 classes from “förskoleklass” to grade 7,  now developing into a "förskoleklass" to grade 8 school. In the second year of operation we will expand and are looking for teachers to join us in developing the school as we continue to build our new school community and culture.

We are recruiting teachers of the following subjects: e.g.

- Class teachers (ages 8 - 11, with a focus on maths, science and English)

- Maths (ages 12 - 16)

- Science (ages 12-16)

- PE (ages 8-11 and 12-16)

- English (ages 8-11 and 12-16)

- French (ages 12-16)

- German (ages 12-16)

- Spanish (ages 12-16)- Crafts (ages 8-16)

Internationella Engelska Skolan is a truly international school. We have staff and

students from all over the world contributing to a dynamic international atmosphere. Our

schools are bilingual with up to 50% of teaching in English and follow the Swedish

national curriculum.

IES Östersund benefits from having a school site and buildings which were completely refurbished during 2020. The school is located in beautiful Östersund - a town in northern Sweden which is perfectly positioned so that its residents can enjoy the local forests, lakes and mountains.  It is a 50 minute drive from Åre which is globally renowned for excellent skiing, mountain biking, paragliding and hiking. Östersund itself has fantastic sports facilities, a range of cultural amenities and shops and retail parks. The town is served by its own airport on the island of Frösön for both domestic and international flights. If you are looking for an authentic, Swedish experience - the chance to live close to nature, experience the best of long, light summer days and dark, snowy, Northern Light filled winters, whilst still enjoying the perks of city living - then Östersund is for you!

We are looking for teachers who, like us, believe in giving students the opportunity to

realise their full potential, whatever their background. You must also be knowledgeable and passionate about your subject. You will have the tools to create a calm, learning environment and differentiate your teaching to inspire all your students.  Furthermore, we are looking for teachers who are energetic, flexible and proactive.  

We require:

- Current teaching license/registration with relevant higher education from outside

of Sweden or Swedish “lärarlegitimation” (TEFL/CELTA are not sufficient)

- English native speaker (Fluency in Swedish is not a requirement)

Apply now, making sure to upload your resume and covering letter. Recruitment is ongoing and positions may be filled before the closing date.

We look forward to reading your application!
