Application and interview

We don’t believe in long, pointless application forms! We just need you to send us your CV and a covering letter to that explains why you want to join us at Qatar International School, and what you can bring to the team. 

Initial interviews may be conducted online, or face-to-face if the candidate is in Qatar. Successful candidates will be fully supported all the way through to their joining day – and far beyond.
