Locally Hired Teachers
Locally hired teachers are those who have come to Shanghai of their own volition and are subsequently hired by the school. Their decision for coming to Shanghai may be to accompany a spouse or partner who will be working in Shanghai, or any other circumstances that would cause them to be here prior to the hiring process.
Since the school has not recruited these teachers to come to Shanghai specifically to work for SAS, it will not include support benefits such as housing, transportation, etc. in the contract of employment. Salary and benefits such as health insurance that are related to the work contract will be included in the contract unless provided through the spouse's contract in Shanghai. The School will consider local candidates for a position before recruiting teachers from abroad.
Overseas Hire Faculty
Overseas hire teachers are those who are recruited from abroad by the School specifically to work at SAS. Since the School is the primary sponsor in China of an overseas hired teacher, it will provide support benefits as part of the contract of employment. Overseas hired teachers may be recruited through advertisements and follow-up interviews, recruitment fairs and/or other venues in which they will be considered in relation to other overseas candidates who may be available. Overseas hired candidates will only be given consideration after local hire candidates have been reviewed.
