We are recruiting IELTS examiners in China to be based in our four regional offices.

We are looking for experienced examiners and examiner trainers as well as TESOL professionals interested in training up as examiners.

Our innovative working model allows examiners to increase their earning potential or opt for more flexibility in terms of monthly workload. For those relocating from abroad, we are offering 1-year contracts and a highly competitive monthly income. Examiners will be based in one of four major Chinese cities – Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou or Chongqing. Travel throughout China is an essential aspect of the work. Our IELTS examiners currently conduct testing in 41 cities throughout China, so this offers a fantastic opportunity to see various parts of China.

Time will be spent both marking writing assessments as well as conducting speaking examinations. Examiners will be part of our wider network and, as demand for quality language assessment grows in the region, this is an excellent opportunity for those interested in building a career in the area of language assessment.
