Our people

Probably the greatest strength of Geneva English School is its warm, welcoming and inclusive community. Parents, pupils and staff mix easily, making friends and enjoying each other’s company in an atmosphere of openness and mutual respect.

Amongst our lively and talented staff, there is a strong sense of collaboration and teamwork, with a refreshing lack of hierarchy. Everyone’s individual skills, talents and contributions are welcomed and appreciated.

Safer recruitment

Geneva English School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Applicants must be willing to undergo vetting and child protection checks appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and appropriate prohibition and criminal records checks.

Working in Geneva

Geneva is a culturally well-served, safe and clean city, notable for its small size but global importance, due to the number of inter-governmental, non-governmental and international companies that are based here.

The quality of life is high and for those who enjoy culture, mountains and lakes, cheese, chocolate, and an interesting, multicultural, francophone environment, there can be no better place to live.

Between the school and Geneva is the airport, a major European hub for Easyjet, BA and Swiss, which makes travel to the UK and elsewhere in Europe remarkably quick and affordable.

About half of the staff live in France, which is just a short drive away (as little as 15 minutes); the remainder live in Switzerland. It is a question of cultural and social nuance and a trade-off between the cost of housing and the levels of tax; each person has their own preferences.
