Eureka Graduate Teacher Recruitment Programme (Hong Kong)

Programme Overview

The Eureka Graduate Teacher Recruitment Programme provides international teachers with the opportunity to teach English in Hong Kong for 9-12 months while gaining access to free regular training workshops led by Eureka’s experienced teacher trainers. The Programme allows you to work in schools or learning centres in a paid position, where you can utilise and develop your teaching skills in a foreign environment. Fresh graduates from all disciplines are welcome to apply!

Teaching English is a fulfilling job which allows you to cultivate and inspire the future generation with language and culture. Teaching abroad allows you to become the children’s window to a wider world while immersing yourself into an exciting foreign culture. The experience looks good on your CV too!

Want to experience the expat life without feeling a million miles away from home? Hong Kong is an ideal place to start. It is a ‘melting pot’ of Eastern and Western cultures, not to mention that it is also home to both vibrant cityscapes as well as tranquil natural landscapes. Whatever lifestyle you lead, you will find a piece of home in Hong Kong.

With bilingualism being the foundation of Hong Kong’s language policy, the city’s demand for English-speaking teachers has always been high, which means the job market in the education sector is always going to be strong. ESL teachers in Hong Kong also enjoy a relatively competitive salary while benefiting from the city’s low tax rates.
