Faculty salaries & benefits

At BIS, we provide a tax-free compensation package that is competitive for international schools. We have a standard pay scale and enhanced pay scale for those that qualify, which is consistent for local and overseas hired staff. Colleagues are placed on a scale according to years of experience and qualifications.

Initial overseas hired teaching contracts are for two years and then renewable on an annual basis.

The cost of living in Bali is relatively low.

We also provide for overseas hired faculty:

  • An annual housing allowance*
  • Annual flights allowance for self and dependent
  • Settling-in allowance
  • Tuition benefits for child(ren)**
  • Pension
  • Health Insurance for self and dependent
  • Exit allowance

*Overseas hires make their own selection of accommodation around the school or other areas. The school provides assistance in the search for accommodation.

**The tuition allowance is stipulated in the contract of employment based on dependent choice. Initial 2 year contracts offer 1 free child tuition if the child is chosen as the dependent, followed by increasing discounts for the second child for contract extensions beyond 2 years.

Candidates Beware of Recruiting Scams

Bali Island School will never ask or require teacher candidates to send money for application fees, interview fees, visas, plane tickets or other costs associated with recruitment or moving to Indonesia. We will not ask potential teachers for information related to bank accounts or other private information. Specific information would be collected only after a formal contract has been signed and upon arrival in Bali. If you have been asked by BIS or another international school to send money to cover such costs, you are probably the target of an elaborate scam. Several good international schools have recently had their web sites cloned, and candidates have been asked to send large amounts of money. All international candidates are urged to be diligent in investigating potential schools during the recruiting process and prior to signing a contract. Use extreme caution if you have been asked for money or private information.
