Interac West expects to have many opportunities across Hiroshima, Okayama, Shikoku and Kyushu starting in Spring 2019. Now is the time to apply for a full-time position teaching in elementary, junior or senior high schools. Full details of the position, including salary and other benefits will be clarified for candidates who are successful in securing an offer of employment.

ALTs enrich the lives of children by sharing their knowledge of English, building communication skills, and sharing cultural insights. Your job would be two-fold: language instructor and cultural ambassador. These two aspects are inseparable, and Interac ALTs aim to become experts in both. Entrusted with being the English expert in the classroom, you could expect to teach on your own, with a Japanese teacher present to help manage the classroom.

Interac ALTs can expect to:

- Start things off right with an intensive (paid!) initial training and orientation session
- Work Mondays to Fridays with scheduled teaching hours between 8 am and 5 pm and reclaim your work-life balance (there will be a few times a year when schools will have special evenings or weekend events)
- Attend on-going skills development and training programs
- Become an important part of your school and local community
- Take advantage of Interac’s Career Navigation Program (CNP) and build portable skills you can leverage in the classroom or take with you into a potential staff position like recruiter, head teacher, trainer, or even office staff

About the recruiting agency


Jobsinjapan.com was started in June of 1998 by American James Gibbs, who had been living and working in Japan in intermittently since 1985.

The initial idea to create a “guidebook” to living and working in Japan and James had compiled a lengthy list of 300-400 schools that had been hiring and found himself constantly making photo copies to give to newly arriving foreigners who were looking for work. Additionally hours would be spent in coffee shops, restaurants and over the phone explaining the ropes to new arrivals on what they needed to do for all sorts of things from finding a place to live, finding a job, getting a visa, socializing, local customs, etc.

In 1998, the 567-page Guide to Jobs in Japan was published receiving wide praise and scores of direct personal testimony from people saying the book was instrumental in finding their job in Japan and changing their lives.

James also took to the internet in 1998 creating www.jobsinjapan.com and moving all the information to the web. The job listings expanded and within a couple of years there were as many as 500 job listings on the site.

Jobsinjapan.com was unique among major sources of job listings in that it was an entirely free service to use for employers and job seekers surviving only on paid banner advertising and then value-added listing for employers that wanted more exposure.

With job seekers and employers demanding more functionality, we compiled their advice and relaunched the site as you see it today. Always free for the job seeker and reasonable……may we say “cheap”…..rates for our employers with some free services still available.

Now almost 20 years later, we are still focusing on our initial mission of helping foreigners find Jobs in Japan.
