Year 1 Teacher (Relocation allowance)

Paid relocation jobs in Romania:

International British School of Bucharest


Year 1 Teaching Position

Romania is without a doubt one of the nicest countries in Europe to work in. You have 4 seasons, beautiful beaches to enjoy in the summer, the last remaining mountain wilderness in Europe, a wide range of ski fields located just 90 mins from school in the winter, and many more sunny days than rain.

The capital city is clean and safe with a good public metro and tram system. You can walk around at night on your own safely and there is lots to do on the weekends.

You have malls located throughout the city with all the western brand shops and restaurants you would expect, but at prices far below western Europe, so you money goes much further.

Teachers are paid 5-6 times the average salary, so it is easy to save and eating out is cheap, costing around 15 euros for an entre, main, dessert, and drink, which is why many of our international staff eat out 3 or more times a week. It is also a place where you can buy your own apartment within one year of arriving, saving on rent, as many staff have done.

Romanians are a very warm and friendly people, well educated, with most speaking 3 or more languages. The students are generally above the UK average in ability and well-behaved, so teaching in Romania is a pleasure, with plenty of support from both the school and the parents – we are very fortunate to have one of the most supportive Parent Associations I have experienced to date, who for example organised a surprise morning tea for all the staff at the end of Term 1a this year to thank us for a successful first half term.

The school was judged Good-Outstanding in the most recent Quality of Education ISI/BSO inspection. We have also just started on the HPL journey to World Class Schools membership, with the school campus doubling in size over the past 2 years. In every way, it is an exciting time, with plenty to look forward to in the next few years in the school development plan.

If you are a positive, friendly, qualified, primary school teacher , then we would welcome your application to start August 17, 2021 (1st Day of Summer Induction).

The ideal candidate for this position would be a qualified teacher with a minimum of two years experience teaching Key Stage 1 using the National Curriculum of England, however a teacher with less experience and the right attitude will be considered, including NQT applicants.. Experience relating to teaching EAL students would be welcome as a high percentage of our students are EAL students.

A competitive remuneration package will be offered to the successful candidate commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Package includes:

A competitive after tax salary

Return airfare

Relocation allowance

Private Medical Insurance

Housing allowance and assistance

Placement for dependants up to 2 (determined by availability of space)
