Eoin Mannion | CEO
Eoin comes from the heart of Ireland. Having worked for over 10 years in international education he has a deep understanding of how teachers and schools interact to form a learning community. Eoin spent 5 years in the Middle East before coming to China. During his time in Abu Dhabi he worked with government and private schools on projects including teacher recruitment and training, school setup, operations and school improvement.
Working in China with teachers and schools has broadened his understanding of international education and also given him a sense of the scale of growth in demand for provision of bilingual education to Chinese families. With this demand comes the need for supply of teachers and Eoin believes Eurus’ expert team is well placed to assist schools with their staffing needs and help teachers realize a better career path.
