Note: Dear Foreign candidates – We’re normally happy to hire non-Thai staff. However, at present we have a strong need for candidates that can speak, read and write fluent Thai as many of our clients prefer working and conversing in Thai and this has formed part of the working requirements with them.
That said, if you are a foreign national with strong Thai language skills then read on!

Therefore, before you apply, please ensure you have the following:
- Relevant degree for the position applied for (i.e., Project Manager = Business degree) helps, or
- A minimum of 5 years of well documented and relevant work experience.
- Letters from previous employers up to 5 years (depending if you have a relevant degree) helps a lot.
- Certificates and transcripts from relevant institutions (you won’t believe the paperwork required!), and
