*Details: *Giraffe English is looking for passionate, capable, and enthusiastic teachers to join our dynamic
team of educators. With Giraffe, you can live abroad in one of the world’s most exciting cities, gain

About Giraffe
Giraffe English is a prominent player in the Taiwanese market of English training schools (with over
700 locations), and we’ve brought the best of that success to China. Giraffe English Shanghai
operates as the flagship school for over 40 Giraffe locations in Mainland China, and with a small
but growing number of branches in the city, there is plenty of room for advancement. Most of our
students range in age from 3-12 years old, with young learners making up the majority of our
student population. We recently began a new course, called Speak Up, which is geared towards
older students who have learned the language and now want to gain confidence in their skills.
During this course we teach drama, public speaking, and debating; and we are always looking for
teachers with special backgrounds in any of these areas.
Who We Are
We have a staff of over 200 individuals, with jobs ranging from teaching and management to IT and
videography. In addition to our amazing Chinese and Taiwanese staff, our foreign teaching
department has representatives from Australia, New Zealand, the U.K., Canada, the U.S., Ireland,
and South Africa. This creates a very dynamic and international working environment, and fosters a
sense of community that can be hard to find elsewhere. Throughout the year, Giraffe hosts a
number of cultural, athletic, and leisure events exclusively for members of the Giraffe team to show
appreciation for all the hard work everyone puts in. We take a company trip every spring, host
badminton tournaments, hold events such as Giraffe Prom and holiday dinners, and let’s not forget
the highlight of the Giraffe calendar—the award-show style annual meeting. There are countless
ways to get involved, and even among the foreign teaching department there are small interest
groups such as a book club, soccer, and Game of Thrones viewing parties. Be sure to check out
our website or follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram to learn more!
