The Job
Our prestigious language school recruiting English teachers to teach adult students for its teaching centre in Nanjing, China. We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic professional who is dedicated to delivering the best English teaching in China.

The posts offer excellent developmental opportunities, as well as the chance to be part of a dynamic, highly motivated team.

There are regular in-house professional development sessions.
