Native English Teacher
We are looking for motivated, confident, and enthusiastic native level English teachers to teach small groups (maximum: 6 students).
- Good class management skills;
- Patient, friendly, positive and passionate about education;
- 5-day work; no overtime work;
- Bachelor’s degree;
- 120-Hour TEFL certificate, or a year's English teaching experience;
- Native level English.
If you don't already have experience or a TEFL qualification, there are several reputable organisations that provide online TEFL courses acceptable to the HK Immigration Department for working visa purposes. You can earn a certificate within about a month if you have the desire and aptitude. A CELTA or Trinity Cert TESOL are more expensive but can be a worthwhile investment as they are recognised and accepted more widely. However, an online or hybrid (online and in-class) qualification is sufficient for us and for obtaining an HK working visa.
For Jolly Kingdom, teaching experience is less important than aptitude. All our new teachers receive training before running their own classes. If you can demonstrate an interest in and enthusiasm for teaching children (through voluntary work for example) have the required qualifications, and want to spend a year or more in Hong Kong, we'd love to hear from you.
Coming to Hong Kong involves a seven day stay in quarantine, though this is likely to change to a shorter quarantine stay in the near future. We will pay for your flight to HK and cover the cost of your stay in quarantine as part of a welcome bonus.
