About the Employer
Established in 2013 our client is a privately owned company that has evolved into a leading provider of modern teaching opportunities across southern China. To date, having sponsored over 5,000 teachers across their extensive teaching community, our client is licensed by both the Ministry of Foreign Expert’s Bureau, and the Human Resource Department, of the People’s Republic of China. The client has a firm commitment to transparency and support for their teaching staff and they handle all details and logistics, which allows teachers to focus solely on their teaching.
