Why should I join LocoTeachers?
You’ve decided that you want to become an English Teacher. That's great! But why should you work with us? Why not trying to find a job on your own?
It's a legit question that bring us to the culture and reputation of China. There is good and terrible agencies out there, combine to a lot of misinformation or too old information on the internet, we have the current situation. China changes law as fast as its economy is growing, that's why you need a serious company based in China and not abroad.
As a professional agency we don't charge you. We ONLY charge the school. And as a school, we simply charge nothing, since we need a teacher for us.
LocoTeachers got quickly the reputation of having the best interests for teachers and to don't hesitate to help and defend them in any case. That's why we became popular among the teachers in China, and now we’ve got a great reputation in the ESL industry.
Recently, even the government allowed us to advertise in the subway in Beijing. Not a lot of recruiters have that, right?
Why Do Schools Use Our Services?
Schools in China have different needs when it's about teachers.
1. Great schools are specific and very selective of their teachers. To interview that many teachers for a few teaching positions is really expensive and consume a lot of time. This is why many schools rely on us to find them teachers. And us, we propose more benefits to the teachers, such as a welcome pack, activities, tips, and the fact that you can contact us any time for any information.
2. Many schools aren't big enough to take care of the recruitment or simply just want to do what they do the best: running a school.
3. With our experience, schools can easily trust us. Our team is young and our offices are close to the schools.
4. We ensure that the teacher enjoy his stay, and a happy teacher is a teacher that makes the students happy. Win - win.
5. Hiring a teacher is really expensive and time consuming, some recruiters just don't care about the teachers, and in the end the teacher will just leave the school before the end of his contract. That's why schools need a serious company, and what best than a recruiting company that is a school in the same time?
6. Not every school can afford a bilingual HR staff.
Why Do Teachers Use Our Services?
There is plenty of reasons:
1. we provide teachers legitimate contracts and high compensation. Also, we're in China, we're not just a website that take care of your recruitment online. We personally know the school, and our job positions are from our schools or partners that we know personally.
