Compensation & Benefits

Faculty, administrators and staff come to HKIS first and foremost because of who we are, our educational program, and the attraction of working with exceptional colleagues and students. Our vibrant school community and the equally vibrant city of Hong Kong are great places to live and work.

Our aim is to honor our professional educators by providing a total compensation package that is globally competitive, rewards excellence, is commensurate with HKIS’ high expectation of its teachers, and delivers exceptional career opportunities.

Orientation: New teachers start the year at HKIS with a week-long orientation on school-wide and divisional programs and initiatives. The orientation is held one week prior to the return of other HKIS teachers and typically begins the first week of August.

Salary: New teacher hires are compensated based on level of education and years of relevant teaching experience up to a maximum of seven years. The annual salary is based on approximately 192 working days per school year and is paid over a 12-month period. Teaching contracts are for two years.

Compensation for other employees depends on years of relevant experience and is determined by the HKIS Human Resources Office.
