Finding Care Work in Singapore

Post by Emmy-Lou » Mon, 07 May 2007 6:57 pm

My partner and I are hoping to move to Singapore (we are both English and live in the UK at the moment) but we are just beginning to look for jobs at the moment.

My partner currently works as a care officer in a hostel for people with mental health problems; would it be difficult for him to find a similar job in Singapore?

He would also be interested in teaching English, but does not have a degree. Would a TEFL certificate suffice for freelance English teaching?

Many thanks

I used to do care work in Aus before coming to SEA, but haven't done any here. My gut feeling is that it would be difficult to find work in that area as a foreigner. As for the TEFL certificate, he could get a job here on that, I did for about a year and it wasn't that hard to find the job, but that was 3 years ago, don't know what it's like now. Be careful of the school though, talk to ex teachers and current teachers if possible and find out if there have been complaints about them from teachers or students.

Check out they have forums where you can talk to current teachers and they also have job classifieds.
