Giraffe English is Expanding: Teach with us in Shanghai!

Giraffe English Shanghai is looking for passionate, capable, and enthusiastic teachers to join our dynamic team of educators. With Giraffe, you can live abroad in one of the world’s most exciting cities, gain valuable experience, and focus on improving yourself and advancing your career.

We know that teaching ESL isn’t everyone’s long-term career goal. With our comprehensive training program and countless opportunities for advancement, our goal is for you to leave Giraffe with a stronger resume and more defined sense of purpose than when you began, whether you dream of becoming a teacher or a CEO.

This is more than just the opportunity to live abroad - this is the opportunity to create something, develop yourself, and gain a network of incredible like-minded people.

About Giraffe

Giraffe English is a prominent player in the Taiwanese market of English training schools with over 700 locations, and we’ve brought the best of that success to China. Giraffe English Shanghai operates as the flagship school for over 30 Giraffe locations in Mainland China, and with a small but growing number of branches in the city, there is plenty of room for advancement.

Most of our students range in age from 3-12 years old, with young learners making up the majority of our student population. We recently began a new course, called Speak Up, which is geared towards older students who have learned the language and now want to gain confidence in their skills. During this course we teach drama, public speaking, and debating; and we are always looking for teachers with special backgrounds in any of these areas.

Who We Are

We have a staff of over 200 individuals, with jobs ranging from teaching and management to IT and videography. In addition to our amazing Chinese and Taiwanese staff, our foreign teaching department has representatives from Australia, New Zealand, the U.K., Canada, the U.S., Ireland, and South Africa. This creates a very dynamic and international working environment, and fosters a sense of community that can be hard to find elsewhere.

Throughout the year, Giraffe hosts a number of cultural, athletic, and leisure events exclusively for members of the Giraffe team to show appreciation for all the hard work everyone puts in. We take a company trip every spring, host badminton tournaments, hold events such as Giraffe Prom and holiday dinners, and let’s not forget the highlight of the Giraffe calendar—the award-show style annual meeting. There are countless ways to get involved, and even among the foreign teaching department there are small interest groups such as a book club, soccer, and Game of Thrones viewing parties.
