Recruitment for International Schools

About

Compass recruits inspiring teachers and leaders for international schools worldwide. Founded in 2011, we have assisted schools in over 50 countries, spanning continental Europe, Middle East, Asia, Africa and North & South America. In this time we have placed hundreds of teachers, middle managers & Heads seeking to teach and lead overseas.

 

 

 

 

We have developed our client base by visiting international schools, attending education conferences and meeting with school leaders. In doing so, we are able to offer a consultative service to the many schools and teachers who regularly use our service.
