Sha Tin Junior School recruits qualified teachers primarily from the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Hong Kong. Teachers find working at SJS professionally rewarding and are surrounded by supportive colleagues and parents, motivated students, first class facilities and resources. An extensive professional development programme is offered both at school and ESF Centre.

Teaching vacancies are advertised in January of each year in media such as the Times Educational Supplement in the UK, The Weekend Australian in Australia and the South China Morning Post in Hong Kong. Regional interviews take place during January and February. Appointments are made for the following school year starting in mid-August and are usually for a fixed term contract of two years. Vacancies which occur outside the annual recruitment programme are advertised in the South China Morning Post in Hong Kong.

A variety of support staff positions in ESF schools are also advertised during the year. For current vacancies, please go to ESF Recruit.

Supply / Cover teachers are often required at SJS. All supply teachers are required to register with ESF Centre before they can be invited to work at SJS. Please register via ESF Recruit. For enquiries please contact ESF Centre at 3762 2653.
