Role overview

We are recruiting a motivated and qualified Senior Teacher YL Contracts to run a suite of YL products under the Contracts Team in Singapore. This post is contracted for 2 years.

You will work closely with the Head of Contracts to manage a diverse and challenging suite of products.  These are primarily:

  • an international BC summer camp, currently attracting students from 22 countries
  • 1:1 programmes for young learners
  • holiday camps in partnership with international schools
  • short term programmes for visiting overseas students.  

For full details, please visit our website here. 

The role involves liaising with clients on contracts, content and scheduling, designing customized courses and developing materials for YLs of all ages in both EFL and EAL contexts.  It also involved assisting teachers in maintaining quality in the classroom and taking responsibility for all operational matters such as timetabling and resourcing.   

Maintaining client satisfaction is central to the role, which requires high levels of customer care.  You will be working with clients from around Asia, so tact and intercultural awareness are a must.  Knowledge of Mandarin, or experience in working in China, would be a strong advantage.  You will also be expected to provide a significant contribution to income targets, develop new relationships with overseas clients and improve our current re-registration and registration targets.  

You will be based between our Napier Road and our Toa Payoh centres, but will be expected to work across Singapore regularly, particularly when partnership projects are underway.  

This post requires excellent communication skills, emotional intelligence and strong analytical thinking skills.  Due to the short turnaround for many contracts, you need to be flexible and have a strong can-do approach and positive attitude.  You should also have proven experience of client management and experience in coordinating projects across geographical areas.    

To be considered, you need to have an undergraduate/university degree, Cambridge DELTA/Trinity Dip TESOL/relevant Master’s degree, experience teaching or managing language programmes, experience of the IB / international school system and ideally have previous experience as a Senior Teacher.
