International Baccalaureate® staff testimonials
“The IB sits at the pinnacle of international education and stands for a mission which I personally agree with. To join the IB meant taking a step forward with my career at the same time as joining a clearly mission driven organization. In the role of Product Manager, I work in a cross-departmental function across the organization, enabling the IB to support schools, teachers and students with leading educational programmes. Understanding the global potential of the organization and seeing the impact of the education that the IB provides is a truly rewarding experience and the best aspect of working for the IB.”
Gregory Biggs - Product Manager (Singapore)
“I joined the IB, in a new role, in a new team. I am working with colleagues to build a digital strategy that will help support teaching and learning until 2020 and beyond. The passion that colleagues have for education is undoubtedly the best aspect of the IB, alongside the diverse workforce. It is a really enriching experience to work with people from around the globe”
Matthew White - Business Development Manager E-learning (The Hague)
“I joined the IB because I wanted to be part of this global organization that so strongly believes in helping young people get the benefits of an international education, which I believe will contribute to developing them into global citizens. The core of my current role as Governance Events Coordinator, is to manage all organizational and logistical aspects of the Governance IB Board meetings anywhere in the world. What I really appreciate at the IB is the philosophy, values and energy that are shared by all staff members, and all of this in a truly global organization.”

That an IB experience can run for 15 years in a child’s life is amazing. I am proud of our mission. The IB has a noble mission to change the world. I am proud to say that we strive to live by our IB beliefs and values. I like working around people with common values close to my own”.
