URGENT: Vacancy on our Young Learners Program in Tokyo
(Solo-Teaching with our original curriculum at a private Elementary School)

We have an immediate opportunity for an instructor on our Young Learners Program for the upcoming fall term. The contract will start in mid-August but the position needs to be finalized ASAP. The position runs until mid-March, 2022, and the starting salary is 280,000 yen per month. The school is located in the Machida area of South-west Tokyo, Odakyu Odawara Line, and Westgate can arrange accommodation for the assigned instructor if they need to relocate from elsewhere in Japan for the position.

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing immigration restrictions, we can only consider applicants who already live in Japan for this position. For applicants who are specifically interested in teaching on this program, please see the Application Information for the Young Learners Program in Tokyo for more details.

If you are interested in this or other Westgate programs, please feel free to contact us via the online inquiry form or by email at westgate_recruiter@westgate.co.jp.  For more details about Westgate's current recruitment policies, please read the Application Information for the Fall 2021 Term.

If you try to contact us by phone, there may not be any members of staff available to take your call, as the majority of Westgate staff are currently working remotely to minimize the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19.
