Teach English in Japan
START DATE: The starting dates are either from the beginning of March or April, 2013
SALARY: The starting salary is from 3,000,000 yen a year and maybe negotiable.
We are offering very good positions teaching mostly young Japanese children from 4 years to 12 years of age. Although we teach to all ages, more than half of our classes are given to children including some classes inside various kindergartens in the green mountainous prefecture of Gifu.
We will provide you with a 1-3 year working visa sponsorship and paid on-the-job training with full bilingual support both in and out of the office. We are also happy to help you with any need you may have adjusting to the Japanese culture or language even if they reach beyond the scope of your work responsibilities with us.
We will also supply a fully furnished apartment or house in a quiet area, in Gifu Prefecture. Rent is approximately 48,000~65,000 yen payable monthly by the employee and there are no expensive deposits necessary. Satellite TV, fiber optic internet access and cell phone service is also available if desired. We also offer a company car for both school and personal use as driving is necessary for full-time positions.
The starting salary is from 3,000,000 yen a year and may be negotiable depending on the teachers’ qualifications and prior work experience. Also bonuses or raises for satisfactory work are part of our employee policy. As of now the couple’s position would include one full-time and one part-time salaried position. The part-time salaried position would start at a minimum of 2,160,000 a year and increase proportionately with any increase in class hours taught.
There will be approximately 20 through 27 class hours to teach each week. Most of the classes are 50 minutes long. There is also more than sufficient paid holiday time including 3 to 4 weeks in summer and about 2 weeks both in winter and spring. All Japanese national holidays are paid holidays as well. During this time you’re free to travel throughout Japan or wherever you wish.
We prefer a year or longer contract to start. Also because we will be training and investing in you, we would like you to consider staying beyond the original contract term if you so wish.
The starting dates are either from the beginning of March or April, 2013 and are somewhat flexible.
We are currently looking for native English speakers who hold a college degree and a valid driver’s license. Couples are welcome to apply as there may be several positions available including some possible part-time work.
It’s not mandatory but we prefer someone who has some teaching experience and can speak some basic Japanese. It would also be helpful if you live, have lived in or at least have visited Japan before.
