Edvectus is a recruitment company that matches teachers and school leaders to international education jobs with international schools or international governments. Edvectus provides job matching services, using international work visa and school -specific requirements to recommend suitable jobs for each candidate (you) and we facilitate the job application process with each employer by communicating directly with the international school leaders and their HR teams on your behalf. We provide detailed school information and coaching such as CV/resume recommendations, interview and assessment tips, and guidance on relocation steps such as visa paperwork requirements. Edvectus does not make hiring decisions nor do we employ teachers or school leaders directly.
