We are Global Teacher Recruitment

Explore the world through exciting teaching opportunities.

What we do

Did you know your skills as an English teacher could be the key to travelling the world?

Global Teacher Recruitment specialises in finding teaching jobs abroad. We are an international teacher recruitment agency for schools and learning centres in Asia. 

We help graduates to find teaching jobs abroad and make the process of finding work abroad easy, exciting and safe with our experienced recruitment team.

We want to make the process as easy as possible

We know that finding a reliable job overseas can be difficult and risky. That’s why we build strong relationships with all of our trusted partners. It’s also why our services are completely free for all teachers.

We place ESL teachers in learning centres in Hong Kong, Macau and China. Learning centres are different from mainstream schools as they include extra-curricular lessons. This is a chance for children to improve their English outside of their standard lessons.

What we offer

We support you in any way that we can. It's our job to secure you a 1-year placement in Asia and we will make sure that the process is straight forward. There will be plenty of guidance throughout, including visa support and funding, assistance with accommodation and permanent access to our in-country support team.


Upon your arrival, you'll participate in a week of training (or 8 days if you're in Hong Kong) including lesson observation in the learning centres. When it comes to the teaching, a curriculum is already devised for you (with accompanying materials and lesson plans) to give you more time to focus on teaching.
