Working at NIST International School in Bangkok
With over a hundred international schools in Bangkok and even more around Southeast Asia, we know that you have many choices as a teacher. We believe that schools and educators, and in turn students, thrive when they share a common philosophy and vision, and this conviction drives our hiring decisions.
Equally important, we know that your role as a teacher first and foremost should be focused on student wellbeing and learning. At NIST we want you to feel encouraged, supported and valued to allow you to keep that focus at the forefront. This employment portal not only offers information about our current opportunities, but also walks you through the process of transitioning to Thailand, provides resources to help you adjust to your new home, and helps you prepare for your role with online training resources.
Even for those who may ultimately work at other Bangkok international schools, you are welcome to use this site as a guide and to share it with others.
NIST is a vibrant community of more than 4,000 parents, students and staff who represent over 60 nationalities. If you enjoy working in dynamic, diverse schools with a focus on growth and improvement, we encourage you to submit an application.
We want to ensure that every new staff member at NIST is supported during the move to Bangkok. From gathering proper paperwork to learning more about Thailand to starting online training, these resources will help you ease the transition.
Our team will be available to help you from the moment of your arrival. To help you adjust, our extensive orientation not only introduces you to NIST, but also helps you settle into your new home and connect with your new colleagues.
