Who We Are:

Yaruki Switch Career is a recruitment and dispatch agency. We serve as a bridge between our clients and an abundance of high-quality human resources in the Education and Childcare industry, cultivated via our business operations with Yaruki Switch Group. In addition to the recruitment of teachers for English conversation schools, international schools, cram schools, and after-school programs in the Education industry, we also introduce high-quality and well-matched human resources for businesses in fields that require English skills such as hospitality, interpretation, customer service, and tourism.

Dispatch Teacher: Main Responsibilities & Duties:

As a Dispatch Teacher, you will be sent to different schools throughout Japan. Other than providing support to the assigned schools, you are asked to represent Yaruki Switch Career and uphold the company standards:

  • Professionalism: A dispatch teacher should maintain a high level of professionalism in their conduct, both inside and outside the classroom. This includes dressing appropriately, demonstrating respect for students, colleagues, and parents, and upholding Yaruki Switch Career standards.
  • Effective Communication: Clear and effective communication with students, parents, and colleagues is essential. Dispatch teachers should be able to articulate the values, goals, and policies of Yaruki Switch Career, as well as provide timely and constructive feedback to students and maintain open lines of communication with the school director and parents.
  • Positive Classroom Environment: Creating a positive and inclusive classroom environment. By fostering a supportive learning atmosphere, encouraging student engagement, and promoting respect and inclusivity, dispatch teachers demonstrate the values and mission of the company.
  • Collaboration and Teamwork: Collaborating with colleagues, administrators, and staff members within the institution is important for representing the company as a team player.

Remember, representing YSC as a dispatch teacher is a continuous effort that involves maintaining professionalism, expertise, effective communication, and contributing to a positive learning environment.

Dispatch teachers are encouraged to provide students with fun and creative classes that focus on real-life conversational skills - we believe when students are having fun, they are more engaged; and when instructors are having fun, they provide the best possible lessons!

While a set curriculum and lesson plans for main activities are provided, dispatch teachers are expected to grow and expand on these foundations with their own unique and original lesson ideas; allowing ample creative freedom to personalize your teaching approach and inject passion and enthusiasm into your class.

Our curriculum emphasizes pronunciation and phonics practice. While we of course welcome English speakers from a variety of countries with varying dialects and accents, we ask that you can effectively teach and express these concepts in a phonetically natural English environment. Only applicants that can meet the highest standards of fluency will be considered.

  • Application Submitted
  • Screening Process (2-3 business days)*
  • 1st Interview (Online)
  • Introduction to School & 2nd Interview (In-Person/Online)
  • Official Offer of Position
  • On-boarding / Visa Support (if necessary)
  • Initial Training & School Placement

Note: While we sincerely appreciate all applications, only those candidates selected for interview will be contacted.
