We’re Hiring!

Welcome to The Wright Language School’s recruit site.

We are inviting applications from energetic English teachers to immediately (as of May 7th, 2024) join us on our small staff, for approximately 6~7 weeks.

Our most recent recruit cycle from December 2023 to January 2024 brought us the largest number of applications in recent years, and from that deep pool we were luckily able to secure a contract with one of the finest, focused teachers we’ve ever had the pleasure of interviewing. Scheduled to begin work with us from April this year, their arrival was been delayed to the end of June due to unforeseen circumstances. We need a teacher to help us bridge to their arrival and will offer the same set of conditions on offer to a full-time applicant, curtailed only due to the brief contracted period.

Our two other full-time staff have a shared experience of over 60 years and will share their knowledge with the teacher, giving an excellent foundation for someone just beginning their professional life and looking to stay long term in Japan.

We really want someone who has the energy and positivity to land in the middle of a hectic school year and look at this as the opportunity to get a solid foundation in the profession in Japan. Any trained and qualified teachers out there, especially those on a working holiday visa: this is a great opportunity in a beautiful part of a less-travelled area of Japan.

Brief overview of the position:

  • Teach English to students from preschool age to adult, in private to large group settings.
  • Competitive starting salary (prorated).
  • Five-day work week, Tuesday to Saturday.
  • Spacious, furnished accommodation arranged, rent subsidized.
  • All Japanese national holidays falling on work days.

We hope to be able to conduct interviews in-person with applicants in final consideration for the position or via Zoom.
