Welcome to ALTIA CENTRAL’s Recruiting Homepage

Most of our new ALTs have now started in their schools, however, we still have  a handful of positions left to fill. At this time, we are primarily focused on filling these last few openings as well as any sudden openings that may come.

We hope to resume overseas applications in the near future. Please understand that due to travel restrictions caused by the coronavirus and a backlog of previously approved applicants we have in our system, it is unlikely we could consider new overseas applicants for anything during the first semester or even our normal September intake if you are currently outside of Japan.

We are looking for more great applicants who are engaging and enthusiastic, flexible and culturally sensitive, and motivated to go the extra mile.  If you would like to live and work in Japan, or make a return to Japan, then please apply now.

Due to the current conditions caused by the coronavirus, we will be forgoing our normal face-to-face interviews and instead temporarily resort to a Skype-only system for all applicants, both in country and overseas, until further notice.

Within Japan, we typically interview at our offices in Nagoya and Osaka as well as other main cities in Japan from Sapporo to Fukuoka, including in Sendai, Tokyo, Shizuoka, Okayama and Hiroshima.  We hope to resume interviews in these locations when conditions allow.

Overseas, hopefully we will be able to resume conducting face-to-face interviews sometime next year, possibly in our normal May and June interview season. Typically, we interview in most of the following locations - In the US in New York, Chicago, Cincinnati, Charlotte, Tampa, Austin, Denver, Los Angeles, and Seattle; in London, England; and in Australia, in Brisbane and Melbourne.

ALTIA CENTRAL believes that ALTs have a lot to offer to English education in Japan, and more importantly to the development of all Japanese school children. We are looking for positive, friendly and enthusiastic people who are committed to living and working in Japan.

An Assistant Language Teacher (ALT) position with ALTIA CENTRAL can provide you with interesting experiences, rewarding challenges and culture exchange opportunities. ALTs work right in the public schools, alongside Japanese teachers, and interact with students and the overall school community in the classroom, the staffroom and on the playground. Being an ALTIA CENTRAL ALT is more than just teaching English, it's a commitment to the development of the young learners you engage with every day.
