Being an ALT is a great way to experience Japan- but what comes next? After a couple years of working in one city or town, you may wish to see more of the country, or to gain knowledge that will help you as your career progresses. The transition into the next phase of your life can seem like a daunting one, but there are opportunities that can help you make that change, and we'd like to tell you about them today!
Borderlink, Inc. has been one of the most trusted names in English education support and teacher recruitment for over 20 years. As we head into the start of a new year, we are continuing to expand across Japan. And we're looking for talented and dedicated individuals ready to take on a worthwhile new challenge and join our HR team as a Human Resources Support (HRS) members!
An HRS position is an excellent way to utilize your knowledge and experience in an exciting, substantial role with Japan's fastest-growing ALT dispatch company. What this opportunity provides to those coming from a full-time teaching role is the ability to take what you've already learned and combine it with new skills that will help carry you forward. With Borderlink's HR team, you’ll be working in an office environment specializing in empowering other ALTs. Whether it be with training, recruiting, or curriculum development, there's a team of fellow veteran ALTs waiting for your ideas and creativity.
You can draw on your own personal experiences, while also learning new aptitudes that you'll take with you into the rest of your life, be it in the education industry or beyond. You'll also be able to continue honing and sharpening your teaching skills as you regularly help out as a substitute ALT, with the added benefits of new locations and relaxed expectations from the schools.
Our work sometimes includes long travel times and requires a degree of self-reliance as you go out into the field. The ability to drive is essential, and those holding a Japanese Driver’s license will be given top priority. As you’ll also be working in a mainly Japanese environment, strong Japanese abilities (or a willingness to learn more) are highly desired.
We're looking for individuals ready to join us immediately or in the very near future at one of our many offices across Japan. Areas include Tokyo, Osaka, Aichi (Nagoya), Saitama, Chiba, Kanagawa, Yamanashi, and Fukuoka. If you already live in one of these areas, this is an opportunity you won't want to pass up! If you're looking to relocate, let us know where you're interested in when applying! Either way, we're waiting to hear from you!
Please also note that while this is an annual contract position (starting date until March 2023, when starting immediately), we are actively looking for those interested in (and able to commit to) long-term, multi-year work beyond March 2023. If you're available starting from April 2023, we welcome your application as well! HR Support is just one more step in a career path that continues further, so those seeking a position with the strong potential for long-term commitment are more than welcome.
If you’re up to the challenge, please carefully read through all work details and preconditions before applying.
