My name is James Cranshaw and like many graduates I was unsure what to do after university, I wanted to spend some time living in a diverse culture but also needed to earn money to pay off student debts. I assessed my options and found that Korea offered the best package in terms of finance, excitement and experience. I left the UK in early 2007 and haven’t looked back since.
Living in Korea has been the most interesting part of my life, whether it is learning about the language and culture or coming to terms with having a ‘celebrity status’ there is never a dull moment. The teaching is enjoyable and during free time I am able to travel around Korea and the nearby countries.
During my first 12 month contract I saved £8,000 but most importantly met my wife Kyeongmi. Since 2008 Kyeongmi and I have been specialising in helping outgoing people find a teaching job in Korea. Kyeongmi’s role is to liaise with our schools to ensure they meet your high expectations. Her local knowledge and connections, combined with my understanding of your needs, means we can promise to find you the best contracts at schools we would only send our friends to work at.
Our services are free of charge; we are paid a recruitment fee from the school which is completely separate to the contract you sign.
