Unfortunately, several scams relating to non-existent teaching jobs at international schools have circulated on the internet in past years, which include information taken from official websites. If you are unsure whether a teaching position exists, please do contact the school directly. Gjøvikregionen International School never charges fees for applications for employment and candidates should carefully consider the requests made when applying to any reputable international school.
