Employment Opportunities

We thank you for your interest in Saigon South International School. We are in the opening stages of our recruitment for 2020-2021. When a relevant job posting appears on this page, interested candidates should submit their applications through APLi.

We search for teachers who have full teacher certification and license from an English speaking country (with the exception of those teaching Spanish and Mandarin Chinese where native fluency is preferred and a teaching license from a country where that language is spoken is accepted). For elementary teachers, a Master's degree in education or teaching is preferred. At the middle school and high school levels, a Master's degree in the discipline to be taught is preferred. For all teachers, EC through Gr12, qualification, experience, or training in EAL is preferred.

Applicants are asked to submit the all documents in electronic form (PDFs of scanned documents) through APLi. While every attempt is made to coordinate the applications of teaching couples, it is strongly recommended that each partner submit a separate application.

Timeline for 2020-2021 Hiring Season


early October

First posting of known openings for the 2020-2021 school year (earlier postings are possible in some circumstances). While we prefer to include face-to-face interviews with all candidates, we will hire on a rolling basis, with strong candidates selected as soon as they appear. Key to this stage are complete files (resume, transcripts), strong references from previous schools, and strong interviews with several levels of leadership at SSIS.



Second posting of known openings for the 2020-2021 school year after the deadline for current faculty to return sign contracts.



The Head of School and select principals plan to attend the following recruitment fairs:

Search Associates Leadership Fair (November)
