Recruitment for Fall 2020

Currently recruiting instructors based in Japan for in-class teaching positions.

For details on the University Program, Young Learners Program, and Secondary School English Program, please read the Application information for the Fall 2020 term.
Please note that entry to Japan from overseas is currently prohibited, and we therefore have to prioritize applicants who are already in Japan. Overseas applicants are welcome to apply for the Spring 2021 term but we won’t start looking into those applications until October this year.

Also, tutoring positions on our E-Learning Program have now all been filled for the Fall 2020 term, so we are not recruiting for that program at present.

To minimize the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19, the majority of Westgate staff are working remotely at the moment.

Please contact us via the online inquiry form or by email at westgate_recruiter@westgate.co.jp. Those who have already been put in touch with a recruiter, please contact them by email as usual.

We are sorry for the inconvenience.
