Expertise – Cultural understanding – Due diligence – In-country support – Community
Opportunity China is dedicated to facilitating exciting and fulfilling teaching roles in China. We believe passionately that the world is a better place when people seek to understand and immerse themselves in other cultures.
So why might you consider working with us?
Opportunity China works with schools and educational establishments in China only. We are China specialists, and our team can provide you with extensive experience and knowledge when considering opportunities in the country.
Our team have been helping teachers and professionals adapt to China, and Chinese companies adapt to employing professional foreign staff for many years. We ensure that our partners in China, our staff, and our applicants respect each other’s cultural differences. We ensure that our applicants have support from a school’s bi-lingual HR and recruitment staff, and that the cultural challenge of moving to China is minimised through working with well-managed educational organisations in China.
Due diligence is a process we take seriously. An initial due diligence process is conducted with all new partner organisations to ensure we work only with organisations that meet our high standards, and can offer the management and support required by foreign teachers. Our team have visited all schools in person, and each is monitored on an on-going basis for teacher feedback.
From a school’s perspective, an experienced Opportunity China staff member will conduct a 30- 40 minute skype/ telephone interview with all teacher candidates, to ensure they are only introduced to qualified, professional, motivated teachers who will thrive in China.
Through Opportunity China’s HQ in Hangzhou, and our Regional Managers across China, we are able to provide in-country support. Our team includes both Western and Chinese staff to ensure that you are fully supported, and you’ll always be able to reach us via we chat or skype. Those who have worked with Opportunity China will know that our team are a friendly and helpful bunch, and that the wider Opportunity China ambassador community is there to help!
We are also proud of our ambassador scheme, which enables you to gain advice and support from others as well as a way to build your network.
The Opportunity China Community
The Opportunity China Community is an active and useful resource. We will encourage you to speak with current teachers who are already working for your potential employer so that you can discuss the opportunity with them, and learn more about their day-to-day experience at the school and within their city.
The Opportunity China community actively supports all professionals to initially settle in to their new life in China and then encourages professional development with the OC Ambassador Scheme.
We are proud of what we and our Opportunity China community do, and look forward to working with you.
