ALTIA CENTRAL is once again accepting applications from overseas candidates to join our team of fantastic ALTs from April 2020. If you would like to live and work in Japan, or make a return to Japan and work with one of the most reputable and successful companies in the ALT industry, then please apply now.
Our locally-based interviewer will be conducting 1-on-1 interviews in Seattle, Washington on several upcoming weekends in October and November. Our Recruiting Manager will also be in Oregon and available to conduct interviews in Portland on Saturday, October 5th and Sunday, October 6th.
In October and November each year, and again in May and June, we conduct overseas interviews in a limited number of locations. In the US we interview in New York, Chicago, Cincinnati, Charlotte, Tampa, Austin, Denver, Los Angeles, Portland and Seattle; in London, England; and in Brisbane and Melbourne, Australia.
Our ideal applicant is a native English speaker with a bachelor’s degree (or higher). They should be charismatic and enthusiastic, flexible and culturally sensitive, and motivated to go the extra mile to provide a positive communicative experience for students. We would also prefer applicants who have previously spent some time studying or working in Japan. As many ALT positions do require driving, applicants who can or would be able to drive in Japan on either a Japanese license or International Driving Permit are preferred.
ALTs work in public schools assisting Japanese teachers, helping to provide enjoyable and energetic lessons, and interacting with the students both inside and outside the classroom. Working as an ALT is a great opportunity to improve your Japanese language ability through cooperation with Japanese staff, to experience and appreciate cultural differences, and most importantly, to be positively involved with the development and well-being of Japanese kindergarten, elementary and junior high school students.
ALTIA CENTRAL enjoys an excellent reputation, positive relationships with Boards of Education, and is respected by the English teaching community in Japan, which both our ALTs and management staff work very hard to maintain. Our contracts are largely based in central Japan, mostly in Aichi, Gifu, and Shizuoka prefectures; with a strong presence in Okayama and Hiroshima; a number of contracts in Shiga, Mie, Nagano, and Fukui; as well as some positions in Osaka and the greater Kansai area. We DO NOT however have any positions in or near the greater Tokyo area.
Our highly experienced native-English speaking supervisors offer a stable, reliable and extremely professional support system. We also provide industry leading teacher training, a wide array of top-quality educational resources and a comprehensive benefits package including generously paid vacation periods.
Successful applicants will need to be available for a full 5-day Orientation/Training session in late March before starting in school from April 1st, 2020. If you are interested in applying and have the work ethic and enthusiasm to represent our values while making a real difference in Japan’s public schools, please visit our Recruiting website for further details about ALTIA CENTRAL.
