The ESH maintains a high standard of quality education and therefore we request applicants to provide details of three referees, of which one must be their most recent employer, or the one prior to the current employer. We will contact referees after a successful interview. All applications should contain a CV, a motivation letter and a completed job application form. Download the application form here in Word or PDF.

Applicants must be eligible to work in The Netherlands, therefore applicants must either be EU citizens or have a valid permit to work in The Netherlands.

All appointments are subject to the successful completion of an interview, (trial lesson), identity checks, criminal record checks, and references.
