Are you looking to make a difference? Do you want some work/life balance? Working as an ALT ticks both boxes, and many more! As the longest standing ALT provider to public schools across Japan, we have the network and experience to ensure your success.
At RCS, we are seeking Assistant Language Teachers (ALTs) to be placed in public elementary and junior high schools, as well as some kindergartens across various locations within the Kanto region for the 2021 School Year (starting from April). Our schools are concentrated in the prefectures of Gunma, Saitama, Tokyo, as well as some other locations throughout Japan.
What's an ALT?
ALTs by their very name are assistants to the Japanese English teachers in public schools. Quite often being the only foreigner in the school, ALTs are usually idolized by their students. As a role model, ALTs are in a position to make a profound positive impact on their students' lives. On a personal level, working in a Japanese environment is a great way to immerse yourself in Japanese culture, improve your Japanese, and build lifelong friendships.
The best things about being an ALT:
• Daytime working hours, Monday - Friday
• Weekends and public holidays off
• Ample vacation time coinciding with school term breaks
• Visa sponsorship
• Initial job training to ensure your success
• A responsive and dedicated HR team (we care about you!)
• Assistance with finding an apartment (if required)
• Access to discounted online Japanese lessons
• Company cars available for hire should your school's location require.
Real Communication Solutions was the first company to provide ALTs to public schools in Japan. We pioneered ALT dispatching in Japan, and in fact shared our methods to help grow the industry. We strive to build strong, personal relationships with our ALTs. We care for our ALTs as individuals, and you’ll feel appreciated as a valued member of our team at RCS. What's more, our technical innovations and company operations are industry leading. We're not a traditional, bureaucratic Japanese company. We're always innovating, keeping pace with the latest trends, and striving to be the best in the ALT business.
What we require:
✔ Native English speaker
✔ Possess a minimum 12 years of education where English is the primary language
✔ Minimum Bachelor Degree
✔ Professional, polite, and flexible attitude
✔ Teaching experience is not necessary, but will be looked upon favorably
✔ Basic Japanese or a willingness to learn.
Remuneration is 190,000 - 260,000 yen per month (includes transportation). Remuneration depends on experience, and school placement location. Some contracts are pro-rated for holiday periods.
If you meet our requirements and this opportunity excites you, then we want to hear from you!
