Career Opportunities

Le Régent employs about 70 teachers, about two-thirds of whom are full-time academic teachers on English-speaking programmes. Teachers come from across the world, and it is school policy to maintain a mix of nationalities and approaches to match the international character of the school.
Applications should comprise:
  • A letter of application, indicating the candidate’s
    educational philosophy
  • A complete Curriculum Vitae
  • The names, addresses and relation to the candidate of three referees including their current employer.

All applications will be treated confidentially.

Vacant posts are registered with our regional employment centre and advertised via the European Employment System (EURES), on this website and on the Times Educational Supplement (TES), a UK online platform.

All applications for posts advertised on the TES must be through their website and not by mail to the school.
Candidates whom we decide to interview are contacted by telephone and/or email. Interviews may take place online or in Switzerland. If travel is possible, all successful candidates are interviewed on campus at least once before appointment.

Le Régent is proud to be an international school in Switzerland and not a delocalised British or US boarding school on the continent. As a boarding school with day students, in an exceptional location, Le Régent is forging a distinctive character of its own with a strong emphasis on “future-ready” learning, holistic education and the importance of outdoor education.

Although Le Régent offers an education in English, the school is located in a French-speaking part of Switzerland and an ability to speak or a willingness to learn French is an advantage. Given the school’s setting, a love of sport and the outdoors is also an asset for applicants.

Le Régent expects all candidates to be appropriately qualified, with at least a first degree and a teaching qualification. Relevant teaching experience is of course desirable and we particularly welcome:
  • Knowledge and experience of the International Baccalaureate
  • Experience of international education
  • Experience of and/or a commitment to boarding
  • A commitment to holistic educational principles
  • A commitment to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people
  • An interest in outdoor education
  • Experience and ability in digital learning (Le Régent is one of Switzerland’s few Apple Distinguished Schools)
Regulations to obtain a work permit in Switzerland are considerably tighter for third-state nationals than they are for most EU citizens, and getting a job offer is just one step of many. Although we consider applications from third countries, notably the UK, preference is given to Swiss nationals, foreign nationals with a Swiss residence permit (C, B, L, S, or F ) and EU/EFTA citizens/permit holders, when candidates are equally qualified.
