Teach For Vietnam is a not-for-profit social enterprise developing young leaders from diverse backgrounds to build a sustainable ecosystem supporting education excellence and equity. Teach For Vietnam’s fellows will serve as full-time teachers for two years in high-need public schools, and commit to transform the education outcomes of less-privileged school children, through significantly improving their achievements and aspirations. In the long term, Teach For Vietnam Alumni will form a different class of leaders, working in various sectors to expand education opportunity for all children in Vietnam.

We are looking for a new member for our Finance team to be mainly responsible for our finance operation. While you may or may not be a chartered accountant, what is more important to us is whether you share the same vision and mission as us and are energized to be part of the founding team of Teach For Vietnam that commits to address the challenge of education inequity in Vietnam. Apart from basic financial and accounting knowledge, and other competencies required for the job, we are looking for a new team member who is aligned with our Core Values – Sense of Possibility; Constant Learning; Locally rooted, Globally informed; Diversity and Inclusiveness; Interdependence. Our Core Values are a vital component of our organisation’s culture to ensure long-term and sustainable success, and therefore we use our Core Values consistently throughout our organisation as an important component for the selection of new team members and Fellows.

Our collaborative working environment ensures abundant opportunities for you to work and build strong network with other team members, Fellows, corporate partners, professionals from local government and other staff members within Teach For All network from all over the world. While we believe our compensation package is fair and competitive, we do not expect this to be the key reason for you to join us. After all, we are not just hiring an accountant to do the job; we are looking for a like-minded future leader to grow together with Teach For Vietnam to become the leader of education sector in Vietnam.
