On top of being an amazing school, Hathaway Brown is an amazing place to work! Ask our faculty what they like best about HB, and you might hear comments about on-site childcare, yoga and fitness classes for employees, monthly chair massages offered by an HB alumna, the fabulous lunches served every day in our beautiful dining hall, or about the myriad professional development opportunities for employees.
But, what you'll hear again and again is how much the faculty enjoy the passion and perseverance of the students and how much they enjoy being surrounded by some of the brightest, friendliest, hardest working people anywhere. The perks make you want to apply; the nurturing and intellectual nature of the community makes you stay for decades!
Hathaway Brown School provides equal opportunity for employment, promotion, and compensation without regard to race, religion, color, sex, age, national origin, sexual orientation or handicap. As members of the HB community, employees are expected to treat other members in a nondiscriminatory fashion.
