Schule Schloss Salem as an Employer

Working, Teaching and Living in a Holiday Region.

Schule Schloss Salem has a long tradition. Founded in 1920 it now employs over 250 staff members, half of whom are teachers; the other half employed in the areas of housekeeping, technical services and administration. As a state-recognised grammar school for grades 5 - 12, we offer places for up to 600 boarding students wishing to study for either the Abitur or International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma.

With its attractive location in the four-country district of Lake Constance, as well as its internationality, Salem is a uniquely attractive place of work for all those committed to their work and who enjoy being involved with young people. 
Since Salem as a business is identical with Salem as a boarding school, there are numerous points of contact between the educational and the service and administration sections. Staff members  housekeeping, technical services and administration also contribute their personal skills and abilities to the pedagogical mission of the school - whether, for example, in the cooking or joinery guilds, the students' emergency services activities or during Outward Bound excursions.


Sorry, but we currently have no teaching vacancies for our IC / IB classes.

All teaching vacancies on our 'Arbeiten in Salem' page are for teachers qualified to teach in German, in the German Gymnasium system (Sek II). Thank you for your interest - please check back soon for any updates!
