Borderlink is currently seeking Assistant Language Teachers (ALTs) for elementary and junior high-level positions across central-eastern Saitama. These positions start from April 2020, but we encourage all those interested to apply as soon as possible to secure a spot now!

[About the Position]

ALTs work in public elementary and junior high schools, teaching alongside Japanese teachers. As an ALT, you become a part of your students' lives as you help and guide them through an entirely new world that's second nature to you- English. You'll not only teach lessons, plan activities and make materials; you'll make the language "real" by interacting with students throughout the day to help them actively apply what they learn in class. Ideal ALT candidates are flexible with their teaching style and want to make a positive impact on the lives of the students.

[Position Details]

● Location: Central-East Saitama
● Contract Period: April 2020 to March 2021
● Contract Type: Monthly (Full-time)

● Have good communication skills and patience
● Be able to commit to the entire length of the contract (until March 2021)
● Must currently reside in Japan with valid working visa (sorry, we cannot accept Tourist or Temporary visas)


We provide initial training before you start and continuing training throughout the year. We also supply you with teaching materials and access to our library of educational resources (worksheets, flashcards, etc.) With all these tools in your kit, you'll be able to build onto what you've learned elsewhere to become a highly-valued and experienced teacher.

Other benefits include:
● Visa assistance (where applicable)
● Help with relocation & finding housing
● Round-the-clock support
● Work regular school hours and enjoy free evenings, weekends and national holidays, plus school vacation periods.
● ALTs will also be provided a yearly calendar to help manage their other commitments.

[About Saitama Prefecture]

Part of the Greater Tokyo Area, many of Saitama's cities can be described as suburbs of Tokyo, as many residents commute into the city every day. As a result, life in Saitama is a bit more laid back compared to the hustle and bustle of its southern neighbor, and is perfect for those seeking a friendlier, cozier lifestyle. The eastern part of Saitama is where many of these suburban communities can be found, and is an excellent place to live, work and raise a family at more affordable costs than one would find in central Tokyo. Many of the popular tourist sites in Saitama are located in the hilly northwestern part of the prefecture, which is known as the Chichibu Region. It's easily accessible via the railroad network that runs across the prefecture and into neighboring territories, as well as down into Tokyo itself.
