At the Oxford Omnia center, we are looking for teachers that can start immediately, although we are open to a later starting date. This position requires mainly English teaching, but the position can be tailored according to the volunteers’ strengths and professional goals.
In particular, we need help with
- social media (including photo and video editing),
- accounting and
- website development.
Food and Accommodation (free)
We offer free accommodation, a food allowance and a living allowance that is averaged to the cost of living in Kinh Mon. But most importantly we offer the chance of career progression in an exciting new nonprofit!
Some info about Omnia Oxford Center
Oxford Omnia International is looking for enthusiastic English teacher volunteers for its first educational project, Matteo Bertero English Centre, in Kinh Mon, a rural village in Northern Vietnam. The school was built where our CEO, Elena Bernini, and the first Director of the school, Lu Mura, were born but later adopted and raised by Italian families. They decided to give back and give the opportunities that Kinh Mon children did not have. The school opened in December 2017 and had so far more than 600 students and around 30 international volunteers from all over the world. Oxford Omnia is a transnational youth-led non-profit organization based in the UK with projects in Italy, Zambia and Vietnam. Together we worked towards our mission: to bring accessible and quality education to underserved communities of Vietnam. Together, following MB English Centre motto, we have dared and cared. We hope that you will join us on this journey and have a tangible impact on the lives of many people.
