Whether you’re looking to jump start your career in education or you’re looking for your next adventure, teaching in China is an incredible experience that keeps many expats and travellers never wanting to leave.

Our client provides an extensive level of support to make starting your new life as seamless as possible - Documentation and visa assistance, accommodation assistance, flight reimbursement, discounted and reimbursed TEFL courses, to name just a few. There is a team of people dedicated to answering your questions and helping you with your new life in China. With a very respectable salary (even by western standards), low living costs, a light work-load and more than 3 months holiday a year - it’s a truly freeing lifestyle that could leave you with an excess of £1000 each month.

Primarily we’re looking for graduates of any subject to come and teach in Shenzhen, China (bordering Hong Kong) although we do have some limited positions in other cities. Full training is provided both before and after you begin teaching, so all we ask is a can-do attitude and an enthusiastic approach.
