Already ? Surely Not!

It’s that time again when many International Teachers are coming to the end of their existing contracts or just relish a new challenge.

Professionally, due to timing, you most likely have already had to resign from your existing post (usually by Christmas) before confirming a new posting (vacancies advertised/job fairs begin early Jan 2017 onwards).

It can be a very stressful and uncertain time with so many issues to take into account;

  • Teaching position.
  • Geographic location.
  • Salary.

These used to be the main deciders but we hear teachers place equal importance on other issues namely the Employee Benefits within the package. eg;

  1. Accommodation.
  2. Utilities.
  3. Flights home annually.
  4. Children’s paid school fees.
  5. Health Care. ( including dependents)
  6. Life cover/ Income Protection.
  7. Retirement funding.

It’s not at all easy to find the perfect job professionally, in a location of choice with your benefit criteria all fulfilled..

Unfortunately compromises may have to be made.

If you feel those include points 5, 6 or 7 there could be ways to enhance your employer’s offered benefits.
