Early Childhood Educators – Hong Kong

Location: Hong Kong

Start Date: August 2020

About the Position

Early Childhood Educators – Hong Kong. We are working closely with an Educational Organisation in Hong Kong who are seeking Early Childhood Educators, to teach children aged between 2 to 6 years. They have opportunities available for Playgroup Teachers and Kindergarten Teachers to start in August 2020.

Candidates are required to hold a PGCE and/or a degree in Early Childhood Education. A minimum of two years experience teaching young children is also required.

Lonely Planet’s guide to Hong Kong includes this account of Why I love Hong Kong:

“Hong Kong has a complexity that defies definition. It’s the only place where I can be searching for colonial military relics near the Chinese border, lunching with a Buddhist at a Sikh temple, trying to decipher the aesthetics of Chinese Revival architecture, or splurging on a set of knives – all within five hours – followed by a night of Cantonese opera, karaoke or poetry, anywhere I choose. Hong Kong is so intense and so full of possibilities that I’m glad there’s the Rule of Law (and an awesome transport system) to stop it from whirling into chaos.”

Hong Kong’s enchanting neighbourhoods and islands offer a sensory feast. You may find yourself swaying along on a historic double-decker tram, cheering with the hordes at the city-centre horse races, or simply gazing out at the glorious harbour. What most visitors don’t immediately realise is that over 70% of Hong Kong is mountains and sprawling country parks, some also home to geological and historical gems. Escape the city limits on one of the world’s smoothest transport systems and spend your day wandering in a Song dynasty village, hiking on a deserted island or kayaking among volcanic sea arches.

One of the world’s top culinary capitals, the city that worships the God of Cookery has many a demon in the kitchen. So deep is the city’s love of food and so broad its culinary repertoire that whatever your gastronomic desires, Hong Kong will find a way to sate them.

SPECIAL NOTE – We thank all who apply and advise that only those selected for further consideration will be contacted.
