Working at the International School of The Hague
2019-09-16 | By The International School of The Hague
The International School of The Hague is a unique and wonderful working environment, a workplace that connects a diverse range of people.
With families from over a 100 nationalities and close to 40 nationalities of staff, meeting people from all walks of life is a daily occurrence. Working at the International School of The Hague (ISH) is never dull, and is enriched by learning about people, their cultural histories and experiences.
Additionally, the school occupies a distinctive place in Dutch society. As a Dutch International School, it combines the best parts of the Netherlands’ community with an international perspective. Working at this school you enjoy the benefits of Dutch employment security while maintaining an international working culture.
Moreover, working in a school gives you so much more. Being around wonderful children makes you smile every day, and gives experiences not found in the corporate world. You can also challenge yourself professionally through the activities and initiatives of both the students and the ISH Community.
The International School of The Hague is located near dunes and the Kijkduin beach, and the school is easily accessible by public transport. With plenty of bike storage, you can also brave the Dutch weather and enjoy a refreshing start before busy and fun-filled days. Dutch work-life balance has many advantages, for instance try the borrel culture, the social ritual of getting a quick drink with fried snacks after work. Particularly good at the beach.
“Coming to ISH re-ignited my passion for teaching and education. Staff and students are empowered to innovate in order to promote learning and have a positive impact on the community. ISH is a place where I feel completely comfortable being myself: it’s a second home!” – Oliver Quinton, staff member
