Anglo Singapore International School Bangkok ?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know anything about this place? A friend has a potential position offer there as a PhysEd and swimming teacher. Their request for documents indicates a starting salary of US$4500/month plus accom. 2 year renewable contract. She is from P.I. but has previously worked in Hong Kong and a couple of middle east countries. She is both properly qualified, not just from P.I., and also experienced in her job.

 

I'm not aware of any scam involving offering teachers jobs but hey, TIT right.

 

Anything to be querying the school about?

 

Cheers

Never heard of the place. US$4,500 a month is about 144,000 baht these days ... and plus accommodation? That is damned good money for any Bangkok international school. Worth a look, but I'd do some digging. Maybe ask an embassy about it?

I don't think you'd be getting any more than that at Harrow, and even then only for UK hires. (Local hires get less and also have to teach summer courses, when the UK hires usually go home for the long break.)

The supplied info also stated 2 months paid leave and the bit that had us scratching our heads and wondering, that the school week is Sunday to Thursday. That's just really strange for Thailand, outside of maybe Pattani I guess.

Thanks guys. we're checking it out a bit more and she's waiting on an email to explain the working week and a few other details before she sends her documents. I would presume a place like this plays straight with the visa and work permit needs so probably nothing to be concerned about on that score.

the least concern should be on visa and wp (just get the salary, who cares the legal bits or tax here lol, simply follow the visa run rat race 555).

more to worry if indeed she is being imported to be enslaved in some kind of brothel lol ;)

No, visa and WP have high priority. I doubt she would have to worry there, but some smaller "international schools" have been known to hire people promising all the legal documents, and then never come through with them. The teacher gets through the school year on a 90-day visa and extensions - then is fired at the end of the school year! The school thus saves having to pay them over the term break and the teacher is screwed out of 3 months' pay.
