There is work to be had but unless you get into an International School's ESL program your going to be working for the same kinda employers that you may have worked for in other countries, ie long hours,average pay and all the rest of the job, doable but hard if you have a family to support.

Also beware of some employers, read the contract very carefully, if it has a 3 month leaving clause (or longer) its a good indication of what your going to be getting yourself into, also check the bonus scheme, some employers here are very "creative" in holding onto your bonuses and paying them only at the end of your contract, so if you want to leave early you default on the bonus, or classifying the teaching hours only as one thing and the prep as not work, if you get an offer like that, think twice.

First of all your PM function will not work properly until you have made at least 5 posts (spam control). Secondly please advertise your vacancy in the classifieds section which is free. I have let the post by andrew cox stand as he is merely reply to the OP whereas yours is of a general nature. Thank you for your co-operation.

I have posted this to prevent a sudden surge of job ads which moderators are at pains to prevent, once again than you.
