Are you a veteran ALT looking for new opportunities this fall? Are you ready for different kinds of challenges and a chance to expand your skills and experience? Are you ready to take that next step forward in your career and not just teach English, but influence how it is taught? If so, we're looking for you!
Since 2000, Borderlink, Inc. has become one of the most trusted names in English education support and teacher recruitment. For over 20 years, we've grown and expanded into new areas, always striving to revolutionize English instruction in public schools across Japan.
While we continue to grow and improve as a company, we believe new voices are needed to remain innovative. Your input will be highly valued as we move forward and think out of the box together; your diverse experiences and fresh ideas will always be welcome; and you will always been seen as an essential member of our team. We’re enhancing our Human Resources Group, and we want to invite you to join us as a Human Resources Support (HRS) member!
For the veteran ALT looking to take their career to the next stage, a position in HR is an excellent way to utilize your skills and knowledge at a higher level. You’ll still have the opportunity to teach at schools occasionally as a substitute teacher, but you’ll also be working in an office environment specializing in empowering our ALTs. It’s a chance to develop and utilize abilities beyond those learned in the classroom, and an opportunity to use your own personal experiences and knowledge to help others. It’s also a way to learn new skills that you can take with you into the rest of your life, be it in the education industry or beyond.
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 or planning to acquire 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. While this is an annual contract position, please note that we are actively looking for those interested in (and able to commit to) long-term, multi-year work.
