Work With Us
Working at Alma Forest School is demanding and rewarding. As a community of learners, we value an open and honest exchange of ideas and build relationships based on a shared humanity, with all its flaws, rather than identities centered around being a ‘teacher’ or ‘student’. As a tribe, we make Alma Forest a home where we can all come to know ourselves better and develop a life-long love of learning and discovery.
In order to maintain this ethos we look for individuals that enjoy spending time amongst young people. If you thrive on authority, order and lecturing, Alma Forest is not for you. Teachers at Alma Forest engage with their students on a level of respect and equality as you would a colleague, and are expected to be vulnerable in a space that is codetermined by the young people in it.
We appreciate commitment and initiative and also welcome applications that may not match any current job openings. For your application to be considered, however, it is essential that you include a statement of why you would like to work at Alma Forest and how you would enrich our team of educators and school community.
Please be aware, that due to the nature of our school, you will need to be comfortable with spending time outdoors in all weather conditions, going on long hikes, sleeping in tents, swimming in the ocean and playing.
Due to the large amount of CVs we receive, we will only be able to contact suitable candidates that we would like to interview.
