A Great Place to Work®

HKIS has been certified a Great Place To Work by the Great Place To Work® Institute since 2019 and in November 2021 for the second time. This certification process begins with a culture survey of all 550 employees at HKIS. The survey asks employees about behaviors that measure the way in which credibility, respect and fairness are expressed at HKIS and also measures the levels of pride and camaraderie in the workplace. Thus, it covers a wide range of areas including integrity, communication, equity, community, team, justice, collaboration and support. HKIS is extremely proud to have achieved this honor and continues to improve at making our school an even better place to work!


Warning on Recruiting Scams

Hong Kong International School does not ask or require teacher candidates to send money for application fees, visas, or any other costs associated with recruitment or moving to Hong Kong. We do not ask applicants for information related to bank accounts or other private information. If you have been asked by HKIS or another international school to send money to cover such costs, you may be the target of an elaborate scam. Several international schools have had their web sites cloned, and candidates have been asked to send money as part of the scam. All candidates are urged to use extreme caution if they have been asked for money or private information.

HKIS’s campuses are located in the more rural beach and country park area on the south side of Hong Kong Island. However, Hong Kong is very much an urban center, and it is important that teachers and their families have the ability to adjust to living overseas and city life.
