English Language Teacher Position in Osaka, Japan

A Full-time teaching position has opened up to join our team starting March/April 2022

We (Osaka Language Academy) believe everyone is different, learn differently, have different needs and understanding these is so important to us as a school.

Being a teacher with us means YOU are the most important thing to us, after all if we do not have teachers, we do not have students.

Our next team member will be part of a small team who entered the COVID-19 world like everyone else here in Japan and will be using online systems as well as the classic face to face lesson.

We have students of all ages from 3 upwards, through to businessmen and retired, therefore the team member needs to be comfortable around both kids and adults.

We are a medium to large, foreign owned family run school with 150-200 weekly students learning from our team in a freer working environment, with a real focus on communication between team members and providing a pleasant working atmosphere with weekly team meetings.


We open from Tuesday to Saturday and hours of when teachers are at school are from lunchtime to 9pm or 10pm, Saturday we start from 9am till 6pm. Depending on schedule and other factors, there are times when teachers may be asked to teach morning lessons, this is shared and taken turns with other team members.

Successful applicants will have an interview with the management team first, then with the team members which will allow you to ask questions about the school and what it is like to be part of the team.

Interested? We hope so, so please apply with a cover letter and resume.
