The Job
We are seeking to fill the position of ESL Content and Curriculum Developer. This individual will work within our Education Department to create, improve, and develop ESL curriculum and content based on industry best practices and current company material. This is an excellent opportunity for someone who wants to work in an established school with exceptional resources and a supportive team.

Our school was started in 2003 with the aim of doing ESL differently than other schools in China. Here at our school, the quality of the education we provide matters. We aim to provide students with creative, engaging, and educational lessons that will allow them to develop their language skills in a safe and supportive environment. Due to continued success we now have a total of 10 schools all with modern facilities and cutting edge teaching resources. We offer courses to students of all ages, with the majority being young learners from 7 to 14 years old.

This is a demanding role that requires a high level of skill in a broad range of competencies:

Knowledgeable:
We expect you to know and understand why certain things work in the classroom and what good teaching practice looks like.

It is important you adapt your style in different situations to benefit everyone you interact with at work, always offering support and solutions. Clear and timely communication, both written and oral is essential.

Creative:
Our goal is to create education that appeal to kids; to encourage learning and good results but at the same time embrace a sense of playfulness, imagination, and creativity so that students actually enjoy learning. We do not want to be generic or teach like the school around the corner teaches, but remain independent and explore the possibilities of what we can do in the classroom. We will need you to create content that can turns heads, that adds a twist to an old idea, and that people like using.

Motivated:
You will need to be able to prioritize your time, have a desire to work efficiently with a get things done attitude, as well as account for unforeseen challenges that might come your way. Crucially, you will also need to be able to take critical feedback and respond to it proactively and positively.

The city is constantly changing with new skyscrapers appearing every week but the heart of the city remains.
