Are you our Principal for Internationella Engelska Skolan in Sundbyberg?

Internationella Engelska Skolan (IES) is a leading independent school group ("friskola") with academic results far above average and a diverse and energetic staff. Teaching is through both Swedish and English, with English the language of the corridors. IES is one of Sweden's largest school groups at "Grundskolan" with 46 schools and around 32,000 students across the country. IES has grown steadily and maintained quality since 1993.
We seek a dynamic and experienced leader to take on the exciting challenge of leading and continuing the successful development of our IES school in Sundbyberg.

IES Sundbyberg opened in 2018 and offers outstanding bilingual education to 780 students in grades 4-9, and a fulfilling career opportunity for around 80 employees. 

At Internationella Engelska Skolan we make a difference in the lives of our students. We believe this is due to our clear ethos with engaged and visible leaders creating an environment in which teachers can teach and students learn. Our students and parents choose us because of this:  
  • our students learn to command the English language 
  • we have ambitious academic goals for our students and ourselves and work hard to ensure every child lives up to their potential
  • we offer a safe and calm working environment for both students and staff

From  the autumn 2023 we have an exciting opportunity for an experienced and driven Principal to take over the leadership in Sundbyberg. The Principal will be supported by an engaged and professional leadership team, as well as a creative and knowledgeable staff body. IES takes pride in leadership excellence in a diverse environment and as an IES leader you really can make a difference and impact the lives of our students in Sundbyberg.

Who are you?

You have a proven track-record in a leadership position in the Swedish education sector with solid people management experience. You are a visible, forward-thinking leader and positive role model for the IES culture and value proposition, inspiring both students and staff and creating a work environment for professional growth. You are passionate about education and create a climate for learning. The Swedish Principal programme (Rektorsprogrammet) and proven experience of successful leadership of a diverse staff and student body are key requisites for the role, as well as a comfortable working fluency in both Swedish and English, as we are a bilingual school.
