Work Here

Colleagues who connect with us are lifelong learners who believe in the power of transparent and inclusive partnerships.

We seek professionals who want to work with a team of energetic teachers, leaders and administrators who appreciate having second (or third or fourth) language learners and a range of learning abilities in a class, who are committed to a collaborative approach, and, above all, who put learning at the core of all they do.

The International School of Stuttgart is also committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers, national/international background checks and self-disclosure.

All who work at ISS come from different backgrounds, cultures and nationalities. We differ in gender identities and sexual orientation.

We have different faiths and various ideologies. We are older or younger and of various physical capacities. Our daily work and lives profit from this diversity. We believe and expect that every member of our community has the right to fair and equal treatment and to be protected against discrimination and harassment. A school culture based on fairness, mutual respect, and trust in dealing with each other forms the basis for our current and future successful cooperation. It is the task of each of us to make a contribution to this goal and create a climate of partnership in which discrimination has no chance.

Our hiring is non-discriminatory in terms of age, sex, religion, culture, and sexual orientation and is undertaken by the Director, Principals and the Human Resources Manager, in consultation with Subject Leaders and Coordinators.

I appreciate the trust within the ISS community. Leadership trusts the teachers to do their best for their classes and students. Teachers have trust in parents that they support learning at home and in turn, parents trust the school and teachers with the education of their child.

ISS Staff Survey

Our City

Stuttgart is a safe, well-organized and green city with lots to offer culturally. The city is the economic, cultural, sporting and social hub of a region with more than 2.7 million inhabitants in the heart of Europe. Over a quarter of the city’s population are foreigners, making for an exciting multi-cultural landscape.

The physical landscape is just as varied with hills, vineyards, sprawling parks, mineral springs and forests. 25% of the area of the city is forested and cycling and walking in the woods surrounding the city or relaxing at one of the 19 extensive mineral spas are popular pastimes and easy to pursue all year round. Skiing is about two hours away in winter.

Stuttgart is the administrative and cultural capital of the state of Baden-Württemberg. Galleries, theaters, music venues from classical to jazz and rock, the state opera and ballet are all symbols of the cultural diversity of the city.

The region is known for its high-tech industry and the city prides itself on being one of the safest in the world, due to low unemployment and crime rates. 

Even if Stuttgart is a great place to live, moving to a strange country can be a daunting task. That is why we have a cooperation with a relocation company that provides a range of services for new staff coming to ISS from abroad.
