Interac, Japan's largest private provider of Assistant Language Teachers (ALTs), is seeking applications from native English speakers for PART TIME ALT positions in the Tama Area of West Tokyo (this includes the cities of Hachioji and Tachikawa). These positions start from April and May 2012.

ALTs are more than language teachers. They are the face of the global community and help and support young Japanese learners to broaden their horizons and develop international understanding.

Unlike many of our other positions, these are part-time. These positions will involve being at the school for a varying number of lesson periods each day (teaching schedules may change, but not the assignment times). Start and end times vary from school-to-school, but each school's times will be fixed for the year. Schedules can be from one to five days per week, depending on your availability.


★ Must be a native-level speaker of English
★ Must have a university degree
★ Must have at least 12 years of formal education in the medium of English
★ Must be professional and mature in all aspects of behavior
★ Must have a valid Japanese work visa (SOFA visas are permitted)


Interac has a comprehensive initial and ongoing training programme to support and develop all ALTs.

Working hours

Assignments can be scheduled between 08:00 and 18:00, Monday through Friday.


Part time ALTs in these positions receive a payment of between 9,000 yen and 12,000 yen per day. ALTs receive a generous holiday entitlement in line with school vacations throughout the year. Transport expenses are also reimbursed.

▼ Due to the large number of applications received, we regret that we may not be able to contact candidates who do not pass the initial screening process.

▼ Please indicate in your covering letter if you have a preference for a specific location.

INTERAC: enrich through education

This job is no longer available.

Interac teachers enrich the lives of hundreds of thousands of school children every year by delivering interactive and exciting English lessons. Commonly known as ALTs, which stands for assistant language teacher, Interac’s teachers, working in the Japanese school system, enrich children’s lives by sharing their knowledge of English and communication skills and giving insights into other cultures.

Founded in 1972, Interac is Japan’s largest private provider of professional foreign teachers to the Japanese government through its ALT program. Interac is also a significant player in providing professional teachers for commercial and government organizations.

Interac is one of the largest non-government employers of foreign nationals in Japan. It employs nearly 3,000 staff in Japan across a network of 13 offices. Around 2,750 of these employees are non-Japanese.

Interac started in September of 1972 in Tokyo’s Shinjuku district, and over the years, the company grew as a provider of educational services to commercial organizations. In the mid-nineties, that field grew, and Interac started to provide ALTs and other education services to public Boards of Education and schools all over Japan.

For the first 38 years, Interac was a founder-owned company. Between 2010 and 2014, upon the retirement of its founder, Interac was owned by Advantage Partners, a Tokyo-based private-equity firm with a diverse stable of company investments. Since April 2014, Interac has become part of the Link and Motivation Group (TSE:2170). The Link and Motivation Group has a range of interests and subsidiaries in the business consultancy, education, recruiting, and hospitality sectors in Japan.
