TEFL is a growing industry and there are ample job opportunities for newly qualified teachers. Knowing where to look for jobs, however, can be less obvious. We have compiled a list of useful websites which advertise positions with reputable schools all around the world to help you get started.
TEFL Jobs Centre
The first place graduates of TEFL Org should look is our online TEFL Jobs Centre. This is an online platform where our students can browse the latest positions and contact employers directly. We update the job centre daily and there are always new and exciting positions popping up, so make sure you sign up to our TEFL jobs bulletin to get news of the latest jobs sent straight to your inbox.
If you have not graduated from TEFL Org, but have taken a qualification with another TEFL course provider, you can still apply for any of our Recommended TEFL Jobs.
This is a free and independent site for teachers of English as a foreign language. Along with lots of job listings it also has a wealth of resources for teachers including pages on lesson plans, TEFL course tips, job advice etc.
This site is somewhat infamous in the TEFL world and often advised go-to for TEFL job seekers. Although is not necessarily the easiest to navigate – think pages and pages of links – it does include what could be one of the most comprehensive lists of TEFL jobs on the net. There is also a particular focus on jobs in South Korea.
Teaching jobs in Asia
If you have already narrowed down your preferences to teaching English in Asia (arguably home to the biggest demand for TEFL teachers) this site is a great place to search for positions. It is laid out well and easy to use compared to some other aforementioned less eye-pleasing sites. You can search through the positions by selecting the country or entering keywords. In order to apply for any of the jobs you need to create an account; however this is free and easy to do.
