Volunteer with us

Volunteering is a great way to give back to your community. It is also a useful way to get yourself on the career ladder especially in organisations, such as the International Academy of Greenwich, which are small but expanding. We opened in September 2016 with 95 Year 7 students (11/12 years old) in our school and a few paid staff but, when we are full, we will have 875 children and many more staff!

The International Academy of Greenwich prides itself on embracing diversity and promoting equality. We welcome applications for volunteering regardless of age, gender, race, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, disability or religious belief. Safer recruitment practices are followed and any subsequent appointment is subject to an enhanced DBS check. All positions are term time only; our term dates are available here.  Please note we only accept applications online.
