We operate a rolling hiring process, that responds to student numbers/sign-ups. If the role you are interested in is not listed and you would like us to keep your details on file, please submit a general application. Thank you for your interest in joining the ISSOS Team.
ISSOS exists to create a safe place for people to learn and grow. We provide a well-balanced summer programme where students aged 13 - 18 from all over the world come together to share a summer of learning, fun and life-changing experiences. Join us this summer at the world-renowned universities of St Andrews, Cambridge and Yale.
What we do
Our summer school programmes provide international students from over 80 nationalities with the summer experience of a lifetime. Students are aged between 13 - 18 years old, and choose one academic subject and one elective subject to focus on for the duration of the 3 week programme. Outside of class times we provide a varied evening programme, day trips and activities for everyone to be involved with.
As a member of our staff family, regardless of your role, you will be involved in all aspects of the students’ experience and we are incredibly proud of the fact that our staff teams have just as much fun over the summer as our students do!
ISSOS is a family, and our summer staff teams are a huge part of that. Each of our campuses is headed up by a Programme Director and everyone you work with will be there because they are passionate about working with young people.
We have a high percentage of returning staff each summer who are always excited to meet new and welcome new members of the team.
Regardless of the campus you are working at, the structure of the programme will be largely the same. Campuses are managed day to day by our Programme Directors, Programme Assistants and the Head Counselors and are assisted in this by the wider summer school teams.
The ISSOS Family
Ask any of our returning staff or students and you will definitely hear something about the ISSOS Family. We take a great deal of pride in this and creating an international family at each of our campuses every year is one of the most crucial aspects of our programme.
Lots of our staff return to us year after year not only because of the value the experience adds to their CV, but because we don’t just see our teams as summer staff. We have lots of social catchups throughout the year, and our returning staff are given the opportunity to grow within our team, many of whom have started as counselors or teachers and gone on to be Head Counselors or Programme Directors.
We hope you will consider joining our family this summer!
