It is hiring time and inevitably we have openings. We are looking for people who have visited our school's website and filled out the online application. It is a lengthy process - partially to learn more about you and partially to find out how serious you are about coming to Muscat and working at TAISM.

After that we usually conduct a Skype interview. Finalists are flown to Oman for an interview. We've found that this may be the best way to find a match for our school. The benefits are substantial - especially when the right candidate is found.

We want teachers who are enthusiastic, cutting edge in their field, tech savvy, and able to contribute in many ways (coaching, etc.). We are not looking for folks who "love to travel", who expect to have everything handed to them, or who do work well with others.

Hope this helps!
