Interac Group, Japan's largest private provider of assistant language teachers (ALTs) with over 3,200 teaching employees, is seeking applications from professional and motivated people looking to make teaching English in Japan the next stop on their career paths.

Interac ALTs enrich the lives of children by sharing their knowledge of English, building communication skills, and sharing cultural insights. Your job would be two-fold: language instructor and cultural ambassador. These two aspects are inseparable, and Interac ALTs aim to become experts in both. Entrusted with being the English expert in the classroom, you could expect to teach on your own, with a Japanese teacher present to help manage the classroom.

While most positions start in Spring 2024 (in sync with the Japanese public school calendar), everyone is welcome to apply through one of our overseas offices (US, UK, Australia) to be considered for any number of positions at one of Interac’s 15 regional branches around the country. 

As an Interac ALT, you can expect to:

  • Start things off right with an intensive (paid!) initial training and orientation session
  • Work in an elementary, junior, or senior high school teaching English as a second language
  • Attend ongoing skills development and training programs
  • Become an important part of your school and local community by participating in festivals, events, and other activities
  • Take advantage of Interac’s Staff Preparation Program (SPP) and build portable skills you can leverage in the classroom or take with you into a potential staff position like a recruiter, headteacher, trainer, or even office staff
  • Have comprehensive support in securing the proper visa, housing, transportation, and other arrangements to help ensure a smooth transition to your new life in Japan.

We are looking forward to seeing your application and meeting you in Japan!
