At least one year of teaching experience in the 7 English speaking countries)
+ At least two years of teaching experience
Just from my point of view this sounds a bit too much to ask for. You want a fully accredited teacher to have quit their family, friends and clean air, gone to Korea, stayed there for several years and now willing to teach in China for 2000-2200 euros?

Do you know that pay scales for Masters of Education start considerably higher? And you're asking for someone with QTS+ 3 years. ;D

I wouldn't even be willing to consider Googling where Tianjin is unless you're offering 45,000 RMB  a month, which would mean that most likely, the fully licenced teachers you ask for that do apply for a job in China have been rejected at home. One of those reasons is not having a 4-year educational degree or just being an allround inhumane prick not being able to connect to students, at all.
