Institut Le Rosey is seeking an outstanding Head for September 2018 or January 2019. With 430 students from over 70 nationalities, Le Rosey is a vibrant global community with a unique character shaped by Gstaad (the winter campus), the bilingual programmes, its cultural and linguistic diversity and the unusual but very successful boarding system.

This is a unique opportunity to contribute to the continued development of a highly successful school as it enters a genuinely exciting next stage in its evolution. Reporting to, and working in close partnership with, the Director General, it is envisaged that the new Head will work with the current postholder, Mr. Michael Gray before taking over completely when he retires in 2019.

The next Head will be an accomplished educator with a track record of successful leadership experience and the expertise to further develop the academic life of the School. Warm and engaging, the successful candidate will combine the cultural sensitivity and global perspective to inspire a diverse international community with the gravitas and authenticity to inspire and engage multiple stakeholders. Strong communication skills, with fluency in English and a good command of French, are essential, as is a genuine commitment to Le Rosey’s distinctive character and educational philosophy.

To download the appointment details for this role, including information on how to apply, please visit https://candidates.perrettlaver.com quoting reference 3431. The closing date for applications is 09:00 GMT on Thursday 1st March 2018.

Institut Le Rosey is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. The successful candidate must be willing to undergo an enhanced disclosure through the Disclosure and Barring Service.

History - Post filled
Teacher of Physics to IB - Post filled
Teacher of English - Post filled
Teacher of Burmese Literature

We are looking for a part-time teacher of Burmese literature, with appropriate academic and teaching qualifications, to prepare for the Language A in the IB diploma.

Applications, which should be addressed to Mme D. Llewellyn, secretary to the Director, at job@rosey.ch, must be by email and comprise:

  • A letter of application
  • A CV
  • A recent photo
  • The names of three referees.

Applying for teaching posts at Le Rosey

Le Rosey employs nearly a hundred full- and part-time academic, music and sports teachers, about half 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 bilingual and international character of the school. The majority are from the UK, but many other nations are represented, especially the USA and Australia. Le Rosey also employs an important number of French-speaking teachers recruited from France, Switzerland, Canada and Belgium. The teaching faculty is also enormously enriched by native-speaker language and literature teachers from across the world who teach a remarkably high number of foreign language classes, many of them as IB A literature courses.

Important considerations for all applicants

Le Rosey is a bilingual (English and French) international boarding school with a strong commitment to excellence. The school is not a British boarding school on the continent, an American prep school in Europe or a Lycée français à l’étranger avec internat – and, although it may have elements of all of these, Le Rosey has a strong and distinctive character of its own. Le Rosey 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 (preferably with IB training)
  • experience of international education
  • a working knowledge of French
  • experience of and/or a commitment to boarding
  • a commitment to holistic educational principles
  • evidence of energy and adaptability – this in a school which changes campus twice in the course of a year.


Non-European applications

To our great regret, changes to Swiss law have made it extremely difficult for international schools like Le Rosey to obtain work permits for non-EU citizens. For this reason, applicants without EU passports or Swiss work permits are advised that this greatly reduces their chances of being put on a short list. We will, nevertheless, consider all such applications seriously; and if the nature of the post and the quality of the application make us optimistic about the outcome of what can be a long administrative process, we are ready to undertake it.

Recruitment procedures

Vacant posts are advertised on this website, in the local press, the Times Educational Supplement (or TES) in the UK www.tes.co.uk, and on the Council of International Schools website www.cois.org.


All applications for advertised posts should be sent by email to the address indicated in the advertisement and/or to the Secretary to the General Director email :  job@rosey.ch.

All applications are acknowledged, but candidates who hear nothing further within the following three weeks should assume that their application has been unsuccessful. Those candidates who are placed on the first short list are sent further details, outlining the nature of the post and conditions of work. Candidates whom we decide to interview are contacted by telephone and/or email. Interviews usually take place in the UK or Switzerland.   All successful candidates are interviewed in Switzerland at least once before appointment. Travel expenses to Switzerland from within Europe are automatically and fully reimbursed. We have occasionally interviewed outstanding candidates in the USA and in the Far and Middle East, but applicants from outside Europe are advised that it is not usually practicable to interview them unless they are willing to undertake and at least partly fund the journey to Europe. We recommend such candidates to indicate in their applications whether and when they are able to travel to the UK or mainland Europe.


Applications (which should always be by email : job@rosey.ch) should comprise:

  • a letter of application, indicating candidate’s educational philosophy
  • a complete Curriculum Vitae (including details of all employment, educational qualifications, as well as personal details such as age and family circumstances which may be important for residential considerations
  • a recent photo
  • the names, addresses and relation to the candidate of three referees.


All applications will be treated in confidence.

Aligned with the recommendations of the International Task Force on Child Protection (www.icmec.org/education-portal), Le Rosey holds itself  to a high standard of effective recruiting practices with specific attention to child protection; background checks are carried out, and any candidate eventually appointed will also be expected to provide evidence of his or her suitability for work with children.


Unsolicited and speculative applications

Le Rosey welcomes applications at any time of the year. They are passed on to the appropriate Director of Studies who files those of interest. Applicants may be contacted if there is a possibility of future openings, but this is rare, although it is standard procedure to send acknowledgement of receipt.
