The Advantages of Using a TEFL Recruitment Company

Choosing a TEFL recruitment company for finding a teaching job is a popular option for many teachers. Recruiters specialized in the EFL market overseas have the professional know-how and network to connect teachers with suitable schools and companies. On top of that, recruiters know the local job market in their specialized region and know exactly what type of teacher is sought after and which qualifications will get you the best teaching position. Conducting your job search through a recruiting company also reduces much of the hassle regarding the necessary paperwork involved, such as visas, work permits, background checks, recommendations, and more.

The advantages in a nutshell:

  1. Recruiters find suitable job positions for the teacher,
  2. they set up job interviews between the school and the teacher,
  3. they offer resources for the local EFL market,
  4. they make sure a TEFL contract is legal before the teacher signs it,
  5. they take care of and provide guidance on the paperwork for the teacher,
  6. they offer their services for free to the teacher - the school pays the recruiting fee upon successful recruitment
