Yaruki Switch Group is currently looking for energetic and dedicated Native English teachers for our WinBe schools in the Kagoshima area!

☆The WinBe Method☆

WinBe is a time-tested, ever expanding English School in Japan, with branches reaching from Hokkaido to Kyushu. Our goal is to bring English education in Japan to a new level, with high results gained from a conversation and culturally driven curriculum. Our instructors are encouraged to provide students with fun & 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!

The native English instructor is the centerpiece of a WinBe school. WinBe instructors work with their school's Japanese staff, head office staff, and other WinBe instructors to assess the needs of their students and provide them with the best possible lessons. Most WinBe students are children ages 3-14, but instructors may be asked to teach both children and adults. Classes emphasize practical language, and instructors conduct their classes completely in English. While WinBe has a set curriculum, instructors use their creativity to prepare fun and interesting classes that best suit their students; this allows ample creative freedom to inject passion and enthusiasm into your class.

We would like our instructors to see themselves as the representatives of their respective countries and act accordingly in a fun and professional manner at all times. An instructor's perspective: "Working for WinBe is about achieving your full potential as a constructive and creative instructor."

☆Benefits & Compensation☆

- Starting salary of ¥250,000/month. (Career advancement opportunities available.)

- Teachers receive fully-paid comprehensive initial training, during which accommodation and transportation reimbursement can be provided if necessary.

- Usable and transferable experience & skills gained via regular teaching workshops held throughout the year.

- Company holidays which fall predominantly on the three main holidays in Japan; Golden Week, Obon, and Christmas/New Year.

- Ten paid vacation days a year (after 6 months of service.)

- Work-related commuting costs reimbursed.

- Social Security & Health Insurance provided.

- Visa sponsorship opportunities available, overseas applicants welcome!

☆Working Hours☆

- Instructors work 8 hours a day, including a 45-minute break, 5 days a week (generally Tuesday through Saturday.)

- Shift times are typically 13:00-21:00 on weekdays, and 10:00-18:00 on weekends. (Schedules may differ school by school.)

☆Kagoshima: A Brief Introduction☆

Located at the southernmost tip of Kyushu, Kagoshima sits on the threshold between
mainland Japan and its expansive archipelago to the South; its atmosphere a melting pot of traditional Japanese lifestyle mixed with the more tropical, easygoing spirit of its island neighbors. The city lies within the shadow of its most identifiable landmark, Sakurajima; Japan’s most active and awe-inspiring volcano. Residents are often seen brandishing umbrellas, but in preparation for the volcano’s occasional “dustfalls,” rather than rainfalls!

A short ferry-ride away lies the mystical and impervious cedar forests of Yakushima, most
famously known as the setting for Studio Ghibli’s classic Princess Mononoke; and a bit further will take you to the tropical beaches of Amami Oshima, one of Japan’s most popular vacation getaways. Back on the mainland, residents and visitors alike can spend their free time taking in the region’s history and culture at Kagoshima castle, or partaking in such regional delicacies as Satsuma-age (savory fried fishcakes) and Kagoshima Ramen (a unique variant of tonkotsu-style ramen with added dried mushrooms and kelp.)

Offering the culture and atmosphere of both mainland Japan and its southern island counterparts, look no further than Kagoshima to experience the best of both worlds!
