College Counsellor

We are seeking an experienced College Counsellor for the 2019/20 school year. In addition to college counselling, the successful applicant must also be able to offer social-emotional counselling or teaching in an IBDP subject. The position would be based on the Moshi Campus but some travel to the school’s Arusha campus will be necessary.


French Teacher

An experienced teacher of French (foreign language) to students in both the middle years and IB diploma classes. IB Diploma and/or MYP experience will be a significant advantage, but is not required.

We expect to start advertising other job opportunities for the 2019/20 school year (which begins on 1st August 2019) in November 2018.


Application Procedures

Any applications for either Moshi or Arusha Campus should include a full CV/résumé 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 who have a minimum of three years’ teaching experience.

As a minimum requirement, all applicants for teaching positions must have a first degree and a teaching qualification that entitles them to teach in their home country. International teaching experience is also desired.

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.
