Tandem International Multilingual School has been operating multilingual early-year creches, and pre-school, kindergarten and primary schools in Uetikon am See, Zollikon and Zurich since 2004. Approximately 200 children between the ages of 6 months and 12 years benefit from a specially developed curriculum that guarantees access to the best schools in Zurich, schools in someone’s home country or to other international schools world-wide. They are also given the advantage of a wide range of extra-curricular activities that are a playful way to support children in developing their talents.
The Tandem IMS team consists of approximately 60 staff in pedagogical and commercial functions. We all enjoy the challenges and rewards of integrating multilingualism in the curriculum of an international school, supporting and challenging children on all levels and pulling together to ensure we provide high-quality education at all times.
Tandem IMS is dedicated to providing a positive, healthy and future-orientated workplace that is inspiring and joyful.
A market-based salary including the fixed 13th month are just as much a part of our standard as our modern holiday guidelines.
Children are at the centre of our attention – also when it comes to our staff. Depending on the position, we offer a number of different work models such as part-time or home office, in order to ensure a good work-life balance.
We welcome development and will support our staff (both financially and/or with time allowances) in pursuing personal development courses. We also offer internal seminars and training days, as well as first-aid courses.
We are passionate and professional about our work. And we celebrate when we have been successful. Regularly. Look forward to staff events such as team building as well as Christmas and team dinners.
Work while your children are perfectly safe and being looked after: If you have children yourself, you will be able to benefit from generous discounts on fees for their childcare or school classes.
Our paternity leave is longer than required by the law: we offer five days of paid leave.
We reward consistency and reliability: Staff get bonuses on their salaries for 5, 10, 15 and 20 years of service.
All three of our schools are located on the sunny northern shore of Lake Zurich, well connected in terms of public transport and close to a number of places to eat or buy food.
We offer a pleasant and lively work environment: straightforward, family-orientated and multicultural. We value teamwork, we treat each other respectfully, with honesty and loyalty, and share our insights and experiences.
We guarantee you won’t get bored. The rather varied field we work in and the melting pot of languages, cultures and age ranges are food for imagination and will give you ample room for creativity, ideas and initiatives of your own.
We are always looking for motivated, open-minded talents that would like to work in our inspiring environment.
