Covid-19 restrictions mean that it is unlikely to be able to secure visitor entry for Kazakhstan. As a consequence, much of the recruitment procedure will have to be conducted by online video-conferencing interviews with both the senior team and other key stakeholders.

There will, however, be some face-to-face interviews:

  • - Initial interviews for longlisted candidates will be held on 28th, 29th and 30th October 2020.
  • - Interviews for shortlisted candidates with the Headmaster, Chair of Governors and other Board members will be held on 5th and 6th November 2020.

This programme is subject to alteration in the event of changes to the Covid-19 restrictions in London and Kazakhstan

Haileybury schools Kazakhstan retain the right for the post to remain open until such time that it is successfully filled.

All applications will be acknowledged. Applicants, who have not been contacted for interview by 27th October 2020, can assume that on this occasion they have been unsuccessful and are sincerely thanked by the Board for their interest
