About Hong Kong

Hong Kong is a vibrant and international metropolis, bearing its well-known nicknames such as ‘Pearl of the Orient’ and ‘Asia’s World City’. It is the place where Chinese and Western cultures intertwine, rendering the city a safe and appealing home for its thriving expat community.

There are numerous perks of working in Hong Kong as an expat, including cultural diversity, low taxation and competitive salary. With an education system that places strong emphasis on bilingualism and English literacy, there is an ever-increasing demand for proficient English teachers within the education sector. This has created abundant job opportunities for the members of Hong Kong’s native English-speaking community and for adventurous individuals overseas who aspire to teach abroad.

Accommodation Consultation

While Hong Kong accommodation is expensive, Eureka is always happy to connect our teachers with trusted housing agents to help them find suitable accommodation at reasonable rates. Our staff members can also offer advice on location choices to help our teachers find their ideal home away from home. If you ever need a Cantonese-speaking local to help you bargain for a better deal with your property agent, your manager at Eureka has got your back!

Work Visa Sponsorship

Eureka’s HR Team is very well-versed in the work visa application process. As a result of our many years of experience, we have the capacity to efficiently take on paperwork and administrative procedures, which may seem arduous and costly to many schools and individual visa applicants. Eureka provides eligible candidates with full support in the work visa sponsorship process, which involves Eureka’s attentive liaison with the Immigration Department. In the past decade, we have successfully helped over 500 teachers from different countries obtain their Hong Kong employment visas.

Social Activities & Networking Opportunities

Eureka believes that the social wellbeing of a teacher is conducive to their health and teaching quality. Eureka organises teacher socials and outings which allow teachers to meet like-minded friends from around the globe. These activities offer teachers the opportunity to explore the fascinating local culture and food in Hong Kong, in the company of Eureka’s staff!

Induction & Training

Eureka’s free induction and training workshops are led by Eureka’s professional in-house trainer and guest speakers who are currently successful English teachers in Hong Kong. These workshops centre around classroom management skills and knowledge of Hong Kong’s educational landscape, which we believe are of great importance to new teachers’ success. Complemented by other useful topics, such as effective lesson planning and adapting lessons for diverse learners, Eureka’s training also covers interview coaching and career guidance.
