Working at ISOC

Working at ISOC means being part of a global community. As part of our team, you will work alongside staff members from over ten countries. Our school is an exciting place to develop professionally in an international context. It offers opportunities for teachers and non-teaching specialists at various career stages.

ISOC is more than just a school; it’s a non-profit institution operating under the Lumina Foundation. This means we don’t have shareholders, and all our profits are reinvested to improve the school and enhance the educational experience for our students. We’re proud to be accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and a member of the Council of British International Schools (COBIS).

ISB has been a part of Bucharest’s educational landscape since 1996, and in 2008, we moved to a new, purpose-built location. Our campus, nestled in the south of Bucharest, spans 19 acres of field site and boasts attractive, well-equipped facilities, including a spacious Sports Hall. Currently, we have a diverse student body of over 610 students aged 2 to 18, representing more than 40 countries. English is the language of instruction, fostering a truly international learning environment.

Academic standards are high throughout the school in IGCSE and IB examinations. The pass rate and our overall performance are comparable to good independent schools in the UK. We are dedicated to education in a broad sense. The school year is packed with sporting and cultural activities, and students enjoy a stimulating environment that fosters internationalism.

The school has been authorised as an IB World School and will offer the IB Diploma Programme starting in September 2017.
ISOC is a branch of ISB. It will open in Constanta in the 2024-2025 education year and offer Kindergarten and Primary school. 


Teachers at isoc come from a wide variety of backgrounds. Some are experienced international school teachers, whilst others have joined us directly from the UK system. There are over 90 teachers. They all share a common belief in the benefits of international schooling and are committed to providing the best education possible for our students.


isoc recruits well qualified, experienced teachers with relevant National Curriculum, Cambridge IGCSE, A level and IB experience. Contributions to co-curricular programmes are essential. Outstanding teachers from other backgrounds will be considered if the applicant is willing to learn and work within the isoc system and ethos. Teachers who qualified outside the UK should have recently taught the UK national curriculum in the UK for at least 2 academic years.


We are an equal opportunities employer committed to the on-going professional development of all our staff. We actively promote the wellbeing of all students and our staff must be familiar with, and uphold all, Safeguarding Policies and Child Protection Procedures within the school.

Continuous Professional Development (CPD)

The School recognizes the need for continued Professional development of the staff. Each year our teachers attend various courses that will assist them in their classroom practice.
