Global Recruiting for 2016-17

This information is intended for applicants currently residing outside of Japan.

We are seeking skilled native-level English speakers to fill elementary, junior high, and high school ALT (assistant language teacher) positions throughout Japan. You can expect to arrive in Japan in the the season starting from Spring 2017.

Our recruiting representatives will visit and hold interviews/seminars in cities in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland, Spain, and the Czech Replublic during spring/summer in 2017. For applicants in Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa our recruiting process is completed entirely online. If you currently reside in the Republic of the Philippines, all of our recruiting is handled exclusively by our agent Chesham Recruitment Inc.

If you are a native-level speaker of English and are currently teaching in another country in Asia (China, South Korea, etc.), our recruiting process is completed entirely online in the same manner as applicants from Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. Be sure when completing your online application that you include your current address in Asia as opposed to your home country address.

The recruiting process takes a number of months to complete and now is the best time to submit your application to arrive in Japan for the season starting from August 2017. But before you do, we strongly advise you to make yourself familiar with the content on this website, particularly our requirements, when and how to apply, details on moving to Japan, and information about health and well-being.
