Is this okay, or should I be worried please? I have just started a new job- everything looks good, it is a COBIS school. When I arrived I was taken to the finance person and basically have just become self -employed. Everything is in the local language but I was talked through it. It seems that I am running my own business and renting a room from the school. I asked the Head who said it is all above board and okay. There are some expat teachers who have been in the school for quite a long time, and nobody seems freaked by this. In fact a senior teacher has just come back to the school so everybody seems to be happy with the situation. I have tried to ask more about it, and then the school are going to open a bank account for me and I have been told that I have to sign a document giving the finance person power of attorney over my bank account. Help please!
