Welcome to all potential applicants!​

We understand and respect the sensitivities that surround some applications so please let us know if you would prefer advanced notification should we wish to contact your referees. One of these referees should be your current (or most recent) employer.

Regent’s International School has a lower than average turnover of teaching staff, a strong collegiate spirit and a pupil-centred approach to decision making. Initial contracts are offered for two years and many staff stay longer. However the movement of teachers is inevitable in the international sector and every year we face the challenge of recruiting high-calibre, well-qualified individuals to join us.

If you choose to work in Bangkok, it is important to know that it is a remarkable city. Thailand is an inspirational, exciting and very interesting country to explore and enjoy. Many staff are attracted by what they think they know of the country but stay for many years as they realise it has so much more to offer. Thailand provides a high quality of life to a dynamic and varied population. There is great respect for the teaching profession in the wider community with pupils showing great commitment and dedication. The cost of living is not particularly high and the opportunity for travel is extensive.

To apply for any of the job vacancies listed please send us the completed application at jobs@regents.ac.th. We look forward to receiving application forms from well-qualified, highly motivated, professionally minded teachers.
