Work at JIS


Different schools offer different things. JIS will offer you the best on many levels –including generous resources to support your career and lifestyle in a city that is as edgy and chaotic as it is wonderful and diverse. As well, the savings potential in our package allows you to spend more time exploring the riches of this region than budgeting for taxes or next month's expenses. 

What JIS really supports most passionately, though, is the learner in you who wants to grow, collaborate, rethink, excel, and stretch beyond your personal and professional experiences thus far. A culture of professional learning that includes embedded training, vibrant professional learning communities, the support of learning coaches and ample opportunities for global and local conference attendance makes this a reality.

Learning along with students is part of what teaching is all about at JIS and what makes teaching at an international school so rewarding. JIS supports teachers who want to be in a culture of professional learning that is in turn made possible in part by the country with which we are so pleased to be connected. The connections between faculty, students, parents and the Indonesian people make a positive imprint on JIS teachers for the rest of their careers.

Boil it down and it's the relationships that transform us most as educators at Jakarta Intercultural School. Connections between faculty, students, parents and the Indonesian culture make an imprint that marks us for the rest of our careers. Ask around about JIS, and you will hear the stories from our current and former colleagues who will gladly fill you in on the details.


One of the exciting reasons to work at Jakarta Intercultural School is to live, work and learn about a different culture and region. Interacting and learning from local cultures provides a tremendous opportunity for rich learning experiences for students, teachers and parents and host country staff.

Our host country Indonesian staff members provide vital support to every aspect of daily operations. Their expertise, cultural knowledge, commitment to personal excellence and positive presence may be just what we need in a position that’s open today.
