Exceptional Opportunity to Join CIS FACULTY

We are increasing the size of our Secondary faculty, while maintaining the size of our student body, thus creating a one-off opportunity for qualified teachers to join CIS. The goal is to increase the teacher-to-student ratio and create greater opportunity for vibrant student-teacher interaction and learning, both in and out of the classroom.

There will be a net gain of fifteen Secondary teacher positions over a three-year period. Teachers in virtually all subject areas will be hired, with some flexibility in the timing of when positions will be filled. Teachers interested in joining our dynamic Secondary learning community are therefore encouraged to apply or enquire at their earliest convenience.

Working at CIS

CIS offers a friendly and inspiring working environment for over 200 teaching staff and over 100 support, administrative and maintenance staff.

With a motivated student body and overall student-teacher ratio of under 9 to 1, CIS teachers have the opportunity to practice their craft at a high level and to form enriching relationships with students and colleagues.

CIS staff members represent twenty nationalities, and about one-quarter have served at the school for more than ten years. All teachers and administrators are professionally qualified, with many holding postgraduate degrees.

Teaching at CIS

We have many more videos on our YouTube channel. Watch the 'I am CIS 漢基與我' series to hear from more teachers about their experiences. 


CIS seeks dynamic and collaborative teachers who have the ability and desire to work in a dual-language environment. CIS offers competitive compensation and comprehensive professional development.

CIS faculty are sought not only for their subject-specific expertise, but also for their dedication to teaching, their diverse talents and interests and their ability to support co-curricular activities.

Previous experience at institutions offering dual-language or International Baccalaureate programmes is generally considered advantageous.


“What makes CIS unique is its support for employees' passions. Over the last three years, I have engaged in PD in Chinese language learning, mindfulness, service learning and positive psychology.

“The school encourages us to hone our craft, and as a result, our passion bubbles over into our interactions with students.”

- Mala Uttam (Hong Kong), History Teacher & Service and Action Coordinator.

Living in Hong Kong

In Hong Kong, teachers and staff enjoy an extremely exciting, convenient and safe urban lifestyle that is rich in its array of culinary, cultural, sporting and travel options.

Hong Kong is unsurpassed as a major metropolis when it comes to personal safety and ease of transportation. Also of note are Hong Kong's extensive and spectacular green areas, which include the Braemar Hill country park area immediately adjacent to the school, as well as the city's easy air access to travel destinations throughout the region.
