I am writing on behalf of the Xian Universal Business & English Training College. The college is a new building located in the beautiful ChangLe Park in Xian. The park is a self contained spot near the centre of the city. It boasts excellent access to the rest of Xi'an whilst being secluded enough to avoid the noise, hustle and bustle. There are shops and restuarants in walking distance should you decide to leave the park at any point as well as an internet bar, banks and markets. It is truly a wonderful spot.
We are currently looking for people to fill vacancies of the following description: Foreign Teachers and Senior Teachers. The vacancies have arisen due to the fact that the college is completely new and is about to enter its first year. This is a wonderful opportunity to start "from scratch" and we hope that some of you here will be willing to join us.

Below you will find the details of the job:

We are well aware of scammers using Chinese job advertisements in order to secure photocopies of passports and qualifications. For this reason, we will not ask you to send these photocopies with the initial application. Instead we ask for a CV and, if possible, a photo. You wil be contacted soon and will be free to ask any questions you want aboutthe job, the college or Xi'an. You will then need to provide proof of qualifications and such.
Also, the jobs need to be filled as quickly as possible. All teachers shall be entitled to an orientation period upon arrival. The sooner you can leave, the more time you have to adjust. For that reason we ask that we have no Timewasters. Do not apply if you are not willing to come out in the near future.
