Head of School – Relocation allowance

Paid relocation jobs in Romania:

The International British School of Bucharest

Company description

At its very heart, International British School of Bucharest is a warm, friendly school, offering an educational experience greatly enriched by the diversity of our students and staff joining us from as many as thirty countries around the world; coming together as a single community, contributing to our colourful cultural calendar, enlivening debate, and teaching us the importance of respect and tolerance- two of our seven core values.

As the only international school located in the city centre, IBSB is uniquely situated to take full advantage of the learning resources and opportunities on our doorstep, believing that our students learn as much from inside the classroom as they do from the real world around them.

We are registered with the DfE as a British School Overseas, undergoing an ISI inspection every three years, accredited with AoBSO and COBIS, a member of CIS and ISC, and accredited nationally with the Romanian Ministry of Education (ARACIP). Class sizes are small, with a Teaching Assistant in class, excellent student behaviour, and a high level of parent support.

A little about life in Bucharest/Romania

Romania is without a doubt one of the nicest countries in Eastern Europe to live and work in, offering a 4 season climate, with beautiful beaches to enjoy in the summer, a wide range of ski fields located 90 mins from school in the winter, picturesque cobble-stoned towns with castles to visit on the weekends, a pristine mountain range which is the last remaining wilderness in Europe, and many more sunny days than rain.

Bucharest, itself, is a clean and safe city to live, allowing you to walk around at night on your own quite safely, with a good public metro, bus, and tram system (a monthly travel pass costs approx. 20 euros). It is also a very green city with many parks and plenty to do in the evenings and the weekends.

There are large malls located throughout the city offering all the western brand shops and restaurants you would expect, but at prices far below Western Europe- a two course meal with a drink only costs around 10 euros- so your money goes much further.

A monthly travel card costs around 20 euros, and Bucharest is also on the low cost travel flight route with Ryan Air, Wizz Air and Blue Air offer cheap flights to all the key travel locations in Europe.
