Borderlink, Inc. is looking for flexible and adventurous individuals to join us next spring as Assistant Language Teachers (ALTs) across eastern Japan.

Since 2000, Borderlink, Inc. has been one of the leading recruiters of highly-skilled, dedicated English teachers at elementary and junior high school levels. Our ALTs work in public schools during regular school hours, sharing their knowledge and insight with students and fellow Japanese teachers.

ALTs generally teach between 3 to 5 classes a day, depending on the school schedule and frequency of the ALT's visit. Working alongside a Japanese teacher, ALTs follow a practice known as "Team Teaching" where responsibilities are shared. ALTs also eat lunch with their students, play with them at recess and help out during school cleaning time. This makes the ALT's role in the school, one that is not only enriching for the students and staff, but beneficial to you as well. You'll learn as much about yourself as a person as what you pass on to your students as a teacher.

With the increased focus the Japanese education system has placed on English during the run-up to the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, the need for high-quality ALTs has risen. Although prior teaching experience and Japanese ability are not required, they are greatly sought after. Cities want the best. Here at Borderlink, we'll work to help you be the best. Our extensive support system includes:

-Training: We provide an orientation & training session for new employees to get them acclimated to Japan and the Borderlink teaching system. This training continues with seasonal sessions hosted by our team of veteran trainers and even specialized 1-on-1 training when required.

-24/7 Help & Support Line: We're here to assist you- however we can, whenever we can. We also provide help with Japanese translation on request.

-Immigration & Visa Support: We will help facilitate your entry to Japan and support your ability to work with us here.

-Banking & Accommodations: Moving from overseas is a big commitment. If you need help finding an apartment, we can connect you with the help you need. We will also help you open a Japanese Bank account and give you guidance in handling other essentials.

Lastly, we want all applicants to know that at Borderlink, we work to constantly improve ourselves and how we handle relations with our ALTs, the schools, and cities. We value our teachers' input and opinions, and do our best to recognize creativity and talent wherever we can. Just was we strive to better ourselves and how we conduct business, we hope that you are ready to do the same. Above all else, teaching needs an open mind and an open heart, as it's more than just a job- it's a life experience that will stay with you forever.

So are you ready to start the road towards that experience and come to Japan? We're waiting to hear from you! Please apply today, and thank you!

*Already in Japan? You're welcome to apply! Part-time positions are also available for domestic candidates; please see the application form on our website.

*Only those who pass the initial screening will be contacted for an interview.
