This is your chance to work with the largest privately owned education company in the world! With over 300 English language schools opened in the last 20 years in China, we are the leading recruiter of international English language teachers.


By becoming an Overseas Ambassador, you can work as much or as little as you like to fit around your studies and be rewarded with £50 every time one of your referred candidates accepts an offer to teach English abroad with EF English First.  

EF English First Affiliate


As an Overseas Ambassador, you would promote the fantastic opportunities EF has to teach English in China to final year students at your university. An immensely popular option, we send over 1000 teachers to China every year – your job would simply be to let them know about it!   Whether you prefer to hand out flyers, set up a presentation or connect with potential candidates over social media that’s up to you but we’d provide the tools you need to reach as many candidates as possible.  The best part is there’s no minimum number of referrals required and no set work hours.  It’s up to you how much time you devote to the role so that it won’t interfere with your other important commitments.

Affiliate at EF English First


We’re here to make the referral process as simple as possible for our Overseas Ambassadors. The first step will be to complete a short online training session to familiarize yourself with EF and the fantastic opportunities that we have.  You will then receive a unique website link to pass on to potential candidates at your university and we’ll also ensure that you have useful materials and special offers to attract more applicants.  Every time a candidate uses your website link to apply for one of our positions we’ll do all the work from there – contact the applicant, conduct an interview with those that are eligible and pay you up to £50 for every interviewee that accepts a position with us. Payments will be processed each month and paid to your PayPal account.  And of course, you’ll be able to add the experience of working with a global employer to your CV!


We’d love to hear from you if you are a university student looking for opportunities to earn some extra money in your free time.  Ideally, you’ll be self-motivated and have a passion for promoting China and want to inspire others to consider working there.  Perhaps you’ll be studying international relations, travel and tourism or languages or maybe you’re studying something unrelated but you’ll have a knowledge of China from living, visiting or your own research on the country.  The most important thing is that you have a passion for bringing an opportunity to live and work in China to fellow students who are about to embark on their next step after leaving university.
