We are currently looking to recruit a Head of Primary School for Aug 2021

Situated in North East Zurich, ISZN opened in 1999 and joined the Cognita family of schools in 2019. We are currently seeking a dedicated and reflective practitioner to lead the Primary School through the next stage of its evolution and seize the opportunities afforded by membership of one of the world’s leading Schools Groups.

ISZN welcomes candidates from diverse backgrounds and with a variety of life experiences. We value humility over bombast, and consensus builders over authoritarians. Furthermore, we recognise that no one has all the right answers and are therefore interested in candidates who are able to ask the right questions and learn from their mistakes.

You can find out more about the role here and about ISZN here.
