Accommodations: We have a furnished house. Note that here in Japan, deposits are often ten months worth of rent paid in advance, only 66% to 80% of which will be refunded. Key-money is a non-refundable gratuity to your landlord. Prices vary greatly depending on the region. To your great benefit, key money/deposits have been paid by KICC. The houses are a little old but are fully functional and comfortable. Compared to the option of cramped apartments, one’s own house is a welcomed haven.
Be sure to take health insurance, key-money/deposits and other hidden expenses into account when comparing salaries with other English schools. We will be straight and above the board with you and hope to find instructors that are honest and cooperative in a work environment that requires both teamwork and self-motivation.
Though not a requirement, special consideration will be given to teachers who have an education background, especially those with experience teaching in Japan. Basic computer skills are required.
