Application Procedure

Covid-19 restrictions mean that it is not possible at this time to secure visitor entry for Hong Kong; furthermore, there is a strict 14-day quarantine in place for all coming into the region. 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:

  • Interviews for local candidates will be held in Hong Kong on 28th and 29th September 2020. 
  • Interviews for international candidates with the Principal & CEO will be held in London on 8th and 9th October 2020.


This program is subject to alteration in the event of changes to the Covid-19 restrictions in Hong Kong. 

Kellett School Association Ltd retains the right for the post to remain open until such time that it is successfully filled.
