Details of Position
With many branches across Hong Kong, we teach English through our systematic phonics, grammar and creative writing programmes to students from Kindergarten to Primary (age: 3 12). We also have classes for very young children where they have fun with English through play and songs. Our goal is to equip students with a strong foundation in reading, writing, speaking and listening. We teach in a pleasant and joyful way so that kids will learn with fun. Small classes (max 6 students)
Salary & Benefits
We provide an attractive compensation scheme including welcome bonus, Sunday work bonus, high student count bonus, sick pay, attendance bonus and paid annual leave.
We are happy to sponsor and organise working visas for full-time teachers with (at least) a bachelors degree and an accredited TEFL qualification.
Your initial contract will be for a year but we are delighted when our teachers stay on (which most of them do) for a second year or more.
Salary 22-25,000 HKD/month
Coming to Hong Kong involves a three day stay in a designated quarantine hotel. We offer 6000hkd reimbursement to help you cover the costs of the hotel quarantine stay.
You may also use this towards the cost of your flight should your 3 days hotel stay be less than 6000hkd. We also offer a further 6000hkd once you arrive in Hong Kong and start working as part of a welcome bonus.
You may use this money towards settling in or towards finding accommodation. This will total 12,000hkd.
120-Hour TEFL certificate
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)
