Why Giraffe

About our Giraffers

We have a staff of over 200 individuals, with jobs ranging from teaching and management to IT and videography. In addition to our amazing Chinese and Taiwanese staff, our foreign teaching department has representatives from Australia, New Zealand, the U.K., Canada, the U.S., Ireland, and South Africa. This creates a very dynamic and international working environment, and fosters a sense of community that can be hard to find elsewhere.

Getting Involved with Giraffe

Throughout the year, Giraffe hosts a number of cultural, athletic and leisure events exclusively for members of the Giraffe team to show appreciation for all the hard work everyone puts in.

  • • We take a company trip outside of the city every spring, host Nintendo Switch tournaments, hold events such as Giraffe Prom and holiday dinners, and let’s not forget the highlight of the Giraffe calendar—the award style annual meeting!

  • • Among the foreign teaching department there are small interest groups such as a book club, soccer club, Game of Thrones viewing parties and language swaps.

Professional Development

We are dedicated to our students, and that means making sure that all teachers are thoroughly prepared before they are responsible for their own classes. At Giraffe, you will receive training on all aspects of teaching.
