Haida HR: Taking education sector to a whole new level
China-based organization Haida Interact International Company is working vehemently towards taking the education sector in China to a whole new level. To achieve this goal, the organization hires English teachers from all over the world, and provides them placement at schools in China.
Founded in 1994, Haida was formerly known as the Foreign Expert Services Department of Zhejiang Interact International Association. The organization specializes in supplying schools with foreign education experts and subsequent post-entry service.
Haida HR has sent more than 2,000 foreign experts to over 200 institutions in the last two decades. While on one hand, the initiatives taken by Haida improved the Chinese students’ comprehensive qualities and the teaching methods of Chinese institutions, on the other hand, the organization provided employment to numerous English teachers across the globe.
Haida HR strives to create an international curriculum system suitable for students at different learning stages. The organization also aims at laying a solid foundation for domestic students to study abroad with the help of teachers from beyond the seas.
In order to work with Haida HR, all one needs is a Bachelor’s degree or higher, a passport with validity of at least 6 months, Certificate of No Criminal Record and a fully completed application form along with a 2×2 inch photo. One must also possess TESOL, TEFL, CELTA and other relevant teaching certificates (120 hours and above). While Teacher Interns are not required to hold any experience, full-time teachers are required to hold at least one year of teaching experience.
The average salary package for a teacher recruited by Haida HR depends upon the location, school and teacher’s experience. Primary job locations remain Hangzhou, Chengdu and Shenzhen. Haida HR places most of the hired teachers to government public schools in China. The organization also provides a 3 day course for cultural acclimatization of teachers in China.
Haida HR strives to open opportunities in the field of international education through its unremitting efforts. To facilitate the international teachers explore job opportunities in China, the organization has recently offered a free China TEFL course. Haida HR also offers free accommodation to the teachers it hires.
