NET Position Advice (Hong Kong)

Hi all!

I just recently had an interview with a kindergarten and nursery organisation in HK which gratefully ended in a job offer. I was just wondering if anyone here may be able to shed some advice on whether it's a good deal or not. :)

- $23k a month
- Approx 8am to 5.30pm Mon to Fri, 9am to 1pm Sat
- No insurance
- No bonuses
- No relocation or accommodation allowances
- 2 year contract
- 3 month salary fee for terminating contract early
- Free lunch provided

Sick, requested and annual leave is stated as being whatever labour legislation says it is, does anyone know what that is?

While I am pretty stoked to have gotten an offer of employment (because they'll sponsor my visa), I did get the strange feeling that they were actually that concerned about me and my skills personally - that they would have taken almost anyone with a degree from a native English speaking country.

Does that mean that the market for NETs is pretty high and that most schools/organisations are willing to take on almost anyone that applies?

Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
