Jobs at The British School of Costa Rica

During any given year, the British School of Costa Rica will offer teaching jobs for both local and international contracts. If you are interested in applying, we suggest that you visit this section regularly and look for new postings.

In making an application, for both local and international contracts, candidates are asked to make it absolutely clear for what position they are applying. The School will not necessarily reply to speculative applications; only to those sent in response to advertised positions. However we do keep a limited database of previous applications.

We only contract qualified teachers who have at least two years of relevant, prior experience. Also, we teach English throughout the school as a first language and because of this, we do not offer international contracts to EFL or ESL teachers.

If you qualify and are interested in applying for any of our job openings, please email us at with a copy of your CV and a brief description as to why you think your qualifications and experience would make you a good candidate for the advertised post.
