Teachers for NYC Charter Schools is a consortium of non-profit charter schools working to bring great teachers to kids and communities across New York City. We are currently seeking candidates for positions that have not yet been filled for the 2018-2019 school year. Successful candidates must be willing and able to attend 2 in-person hiring prep workshops, and a culminating in-person hiring fair with our partner schools, in New York City in October 2018 in anticipation of filling mid-year vacancies as early as November 2018. The deadline to apply is September 26th, though applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, so it is to your advantage to apply as soon as possible.

Our Hiring Process

Successful candidates applying to the Teachers for NYC Charter Schools program should expect to participate in the following steps:

1.      Submit your initial application to the Teachers for NYC Charter Schools program. This application includes your basic background, contact, and educational information, your resume, and written responses to four (4) short answer prompts.

2.      If invited to the next stage, you will complete a recorded video interview. We will provide you with several short answer prompts for you to respond to in your video.

3.      Once enrolled in our program, you will be required to attend two (2) in-person workshops in NYC designed to prepare you for the culminating hiring fair with our partner schools. Workshops are tentatively scheduled for October 6th and 13th and the hiring fair will be held on October 13th, immediately following the close of the second workshop.

4.      At the hiring fair, you be prepared to market yourself to our partner schools and tell them why you are the best candidate for their open position(s). You will participate in on-the-spot interviews or schedule interviews with school hiring teams during the hiring fair.

5.      It is ultimately up to our partner schools to make final hiring decisions after interviewing candidates.
