Local Expat Faculty Benefits

Local Expat Faculty Benefits

Local expatriate faculty are those already residing in Shanghai holding a foreign passport. Their decision for coming to Shanghai may have been to accompany a spouse or partner who came to work in Shanghai, or any other circumstance that would cause him or her to be in Shanghai prior to the hiring process.

Exception: Teachers who are employed at another international school within Shanghai and are receiving an overseas hire package may receive an overseas contract with Concordia. The teacher’s present employer must verify in writing that the teacher is currently receiving an overseas hire package, as per benefits noted in the overseas hire list of benefits, and acknowledge that the teacher is free to consider a contract with Concordia.

Applications are received throughout the year. Please state you are a local expatriate when sending us your application.
