We work on the premise that information-gathering on the parts of both the school and the candidate makes for informed decision-making on both halves - and ultimately results in the best hire and the optimum outcome for all concerned. Selected candidates will be contacted for a department-specific interview, which will be conducted by our professional staff and administration - either by Skype or in-person (depending on where you are in the world!). Subsequent interviews will follow with key members of our administration team.If selected for a position, an offer of employment will be presented, along with a request for permission to conduct a background check, coincident with reference checking. You will be apprised of timelines as you move through the selection process, and you will be kept informed of outcomes.
