We value career development and would offer promotion opportunities to the right candidates.
The new teacher would live in Alessandria and not Valenza. We would find suitable accommodation and help with all the paperwork involved.
Alessandria is a medium-sized town and, as such, it is often easier to form bonds with people than it would be in a larger, more touristy city, and really get to know the Italian way of life.
While it is not exactly a tourist hotspot, it has a pleasant city centre and the pace of life is very relaxed.
It is close to some beautiful, hilly vineyard-filled countryside, and within striking distance of the mountains (there are organised trips to go skiing available in town) and the lovely Ligurian seaside.
The nearby big cities of Milan, Turin and Genoa are easily reached and boast excellent shops, historical centres, galleries and museums. Other nearby towns worth visiting include Pavia with its charterhouse and Acqui Terme with its spas.
Some of the best Italian food and, especially, wine and chocolate come from this region. There is also a romantically underachieving third division football team to go and see!
