We thank you for your interest in Shekou International School. Although our positions have been filled for the 2021-2022 school year, we are seeking interest from dynamic and committed teachers and leaders for the future. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to become part of a highly motivated professional staff and community, and live in one of the most dynamic cities in Asia.
Due to the current border and visa restrictions, our preference is to find candidates who are currently working/living in Mainland China.
We prefer teachers who have full teacher certification and license from an English speaking country (with the exception of those teaching in the French Bilingual Program). For primary teachers, a Master's degree in education or teaching is preferred. At the middle school and high school levels, a Master's degree in the discipline to be taught is preferred. For all teachers, qualification, experience, or training in EAL is beneficial. As an IB World School offering the PYP and DP we will give preference to those who have experience in this framework.
While every attempt is made to coordinate the applications of teaching couples, it is strongly recommended that each partner submit a separate application.
Our teachers and administrators work in highly integrated collaborative teams. The SIS community is close and committed to continuous improvement. Expectations are high and the opportunities for professional development are rich and significant. Compensation is competitive and the earning/savings potential is very good.
Our school is situated in one of China's most dynamic, modern cities, directly across the bay from Hong Kong. Living standards are high with all amenities available and convenient. Situated 30 minutes from both the Shenzhen and Hong Kong airports, travel to all parts of Asia and the world is convenient. Applicants should have significant relevant experience and have the desire to be active in a school that is committed to excellence.
