Quoting the salary in the currencies of Anglophone countries is hardly laziness; English speakers with mother tongue (!) competence tend to come from those countries. Exchange rates fluctuate, but the figures quoted give a good idea of the salary offered.

Exactly... exchange rates fluctuate... often by a large amount.

I wouldn't call it laziness, but more likely misleading. That is why the salary should be stated in the currency in which it is paid. Google will bring you the conversion to the currency you prefer within seconds.

1900 OMR to work at MTC is a joke. And the fact that they require an MA + 7 years to get the job is even sillier because this is at best a BA + 2 job. I would wish them luck, but they wouldn't know what to do with it.

The salary will be paid in Rial so it should be stated in Rial.

Playing silly games will get them silly people.

Has anyone actually been recruited through Red Chair for this position?

If so, please post here with your experiences of both the recruitment process, and of the post itself.

How long did the rec process take? How long before mobilisation? What was the visa ap process? etc ...

What institution is it? What are the class sizes? What are the teaching and office hours? How much holiday is offered? What is the accommodation like?

I applied last year and didn't get an interview for the valid reason that I had not completed my MA. I was, however, put forward for a 'lesser' position in KSA, and was then 'encouraged' by R.C. to accept a far less favourable offer, which I declined.

Red Chair is advertising again, and I have put my details forward again. This time I have both the required BA Eng and MA TESOL, and I will be very suspicious I don't get an interview. Will update ... No off topic pedantry please ...

You're referring to this ad, http://www.eslcafe.com/joblist/index.cgi?read=44291:

Quote:
Requirements:
- A minim of MA qualification, specifically in English, Education, ESOL or Applied Linguistics coupled with a BA degree in English, Education or Applied Linguistics WILL ONLY will be considered.
- CELTA, TEFL or equivalent qualification.
- Minimum 7 years’ experience
- Be able to speak English to mother tongue standard
- Ability and willingness to relocate
- Ability to meet all above responsibilities

PLEASE NOTE:
My clients are insisting that all candidates hold the qualifications as outlined in detail for any application to proceed. If you do not hold these qualifications your application will be not consider

That ad needs reworking; it mentions KSA as well. Plus, it's unclear if those 7 years of experience need to have been gained post-MA.

Red Chair is a "boutique" recruitment agency based in Ireland.

I was interviewed by one of the team at the superjobs boutique. He couldn't answer any of my questions about the job. Said AK would get back to me with all the answers. He never did. We forget people.
