Job description

BrightSpark Teachers are currently working closely with a partner organisation who are looking for educators to teach across China. They have opportunities in various locations to teach learners from early years to university level.

Candidates are required to hold a Bachelor’s degree in any subject (must be notarized in the country of issue) and a TEFL certificate, minimum 120 hours (or equivalent). Native English speakers preferred.

The job opportunities provided by our partner organisation are well-paid positions with credible international institutions, including Private & Public Universities, Private & Public Colleges, International Schools and Language Centers based in various locations throughout China.

China. The name alone makes you want to get packing. It’s going places, so jump aboard, go along for the ride and see where it’s headed.

Its modern face is dazzling, but China is no one-trick pony. The world’s oldest continuous civilisation isn’t all smoked glass and brushed aluminium and while you won’t be tripping over artefacts – three decades of round-the-clock development and rash town planning have taken their toll – rich seams of antiquity await. Serve it all up according to taste: collapsing sections of the Great Wall, temple-topped mountains, villages that time forgot, languorous water towns, sublime Buddhist grottoes and ancient desert forts. Pack a well-made pair of travelling shoes and remember the words of Laotzu: ‘a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step’.

China is vast. Off-the-scale massive. A riveting jumble of wildly differing dialects and climatic and topographical extremes, it’s like several different countries rolled into one. Take your pick from the tossed-salad ethnic mix of the southwest, the yak-butter-illuminated temples of Xiàhé, a journey along the dusty Silk Road, spending the night at Everest Base Camp or getting into your glad rags for a night on the Shànghǎi tiles. You’re spoilt for choice: whether you’re an urban traveller, hiker, cyclist, explorer, backpacker, irrepressible museum-goer or faddish foodie, China’s diversity is second to none.

SPECIAL NOTE – We thank all who apply and advise that only those selected for further consideration will be contacted.
