ISD - The International School of Dakar

Job Openings

Job openings are known only as early as teachers share their plans with administration. The school requires teachers to declare their intentions (remain/move on) by December. Thus, positions available is often information in flux. However, ISD will update possible and probable openings as often as possible on this and other teacher recruitment websites. Reporting for new jobs is generally the first week of August.

Candidates Beware of Recruiting Scams

IS Dakar will never ask or require teacher candidates to send money for application fees, interview fees, visas, plane tickets or other costs associated with recruitment or moving to Dakar. We will not ask potential teachers for information related to bank accounts or other private information. If you have been asked by IS Dakar or another international school to send money to cover such costs, you may be the target of a scam. Some quality international schools have recently had their web sites cloned, and candidates have been asked to send money to fraudsters. All international candidates are urged to be diligent in investigating potential schools during the recruiting process and prior to signing a contract. Use extreme caution if you have been asked for money or private information.
