Job Opportunities

Details last updated 29 March 2015

We have the following vacancies on our Arusha Campus to start at the beginning of August 2015:

Arusha Campus

There a number of possible combinations to the varied responsibilities posted below.  More specifically, two positions consist of a combination of the following roles: Design, Biology and Life Skills. In addition, the Primary French position could be combined with responsibilities in the Secondary.

Biology with a) Design or b) Life Skills

We seek a Secondary teacher of Biology to teach IB DP and MYP classes. This position also involves other responsibilities such as MYP Life Skills or MYP Design. Experience in teaching DP and MYP is a definite advantage. The Biology position could also be a part-time position.

Design with a) Biology or b) Life Skills

We seek a Secondary teacher of Design to teach MYP classes. This position could also involve other responsibilities such as IT Coordination, Life Skills and Biology.

As may be evident, the two positions above overlap.


We are seeking a teacher to teach Swahili within the PYP and MYP, and possibly Diploma Programme. Whilst the majority of this role will be foreign or second language teaching, some first language teaching may also be required. Experience of teaching Swahili in an international school environment would be a significant advantage.

Primary French

We seek a part-time Primary (PYP) teacher of French. This position could be combined with a role in the Secondary (see positions above).


All teachers are expected to contribute to our various activities programmes.

Moshi Campus

All our teaching positions for August 2015 are currently filled.

Application Procedures

Any applications for either Moshi or Arusha Campus should include a full CV/resume and the names and addresses (including e-mail addresses) of two professional referees. It is important to include details of any family members who may accompany you; we are unlikely to offer employment to a spouse unless as part of a teaching couple and local employment opportunities are extremely limited. Current Tanzanian regulations mean that we are only able to consider teachers under fifty five years of age.

The school also uses placement agencies to assist in our search for strong teaching candidates. However we encourage direct applications and will not be liable for agency placement fees when teachers contact us directly through this website.

Applications for positions should be made by email to or in writing to The Director, International School Moshi, PO Box 733, Moshi, Kilimanjaro, Tanzania.
