Borderlink, Inc. is the fastest-growing ALT dispatch company in Japan, and we're hiring! With over 20 years of experience, we have been creating opportunities for people across world to come teach in Japan. And we're looking for passionate, dedicated and flexible individuals to join our team of ALTs (Assistant Language Teachers) in the near future.

ALTs work directly in Japanese public elementary and junior high schools, aiding Japanese teachers in conducting English lessons. You will become a valued part of the school community, interacting with children and adults alike throughout the day. ALTs go beyond simply teaching English in the classroom, and help create an immersive environment that builds connections and changes lives. Be a part of the educational process, influencing your students' experience and interest in learning!

Whether you're pursuing a life in education long-term or seeking a career change, working as an ALT is a great way to enrich teaching and experience Japan. Go beyond your limits and apply today.

🌸 General position details:
● Contract period: April 2025 to March 2026 (immediate-start positions can be available for those applying from within Japan)
● Contract Type: Full-Time (daily-rate/part-time positions can be available in select areas for candidates applying from within Japan with a valid visa)
● General working days: Between Monday to Friday
● General working hours: Between 8:00 am to 5:00 pm
● General school level: Elementary and/or junior high schools
● Location: Various across Japan

🌎 For those currently living outside Japan:
Overseas candidates will start from April 2025 in general, but you can begin the application process today. We will help you prepare for your journey to Japan with online support such as visa application assistance, group chats and Japanese language lessons. Make your dream of coming to Japan into a reality with us.

🗾 For those already living in Japan:
If you live in Japan and hold the appropriate resident or working visa type, you could become an ALT in a matter of days if we have an opening that fits you. We recruit year-round and mainly hold our interviews online. If you have prior ALT experience, the ability to drive in Japan and/or are open to relocation, the possibilities widen even further. This opportunity is also open to those currently studying in Japan on Student visas and seeking a post-graduate career.

⚠️ Requirements:
If you are applying from overseas or in Japan and seeking visa sponsorship, you must be a university graduate holding at least a bachelor's degree or equivalent. You also need to have had 12 years of education where English was the main language of instruction used for all classes (i.e. all classes were taught primarily in English).

However, that doesn't mean you need to come from a country where English is the native language. As long as your educational history includes the above-mentioned 12 years, you can be eligible to work as an ALT too.

⭐️ Benefits:
Borderlink ALTs enjoy a range of benefits and support, including:

✅ A wide range of locations nationwide, including some of Japan's biggest cities
✅ Enrollment in the social insurance system (where applicable)
✅ Help with securing a rental car (for driving positions) at a much more reasonable price than other rental services
✅ Personalized, friendly assistance with handling tax forms, visa renewals, etc
✅ Year-round paid training sessions (including orientation/initial training)
✅ Access to teaching materials and our vast library of educational resources
