Details of Position

A position with ILA will give you more than just a job. At ILA you will learn and grow as well as experience a new culture and discover the beauty of Vietnam.
Vietnam is known for its sunny, warm climate, friendly people and delicious food. It is a developing country but its economy continues to grow rapidly, attracting expatriates from around the globe.

With over 400 expat staff and 18,500 students, ILA is Vietnam's leading English language school. We currently have twenty training centres around the country, with new centres planned to open soon. Due to our size and focus on professional development, ILA provides teaching opportunities that most schools cannot: become a senior teacher, IELTS examiner, materials developer, academic manager or even CELTA/DELTA trainer. The possibilities are endless.

We have positions with immediate, December and January start dates. We also have rolling recruitment throughout the year so welcome applications for other start dates. – You can find full details of our current need on our website -

We currently have twenty-one training centres, with fifteen centres located in Ho Chi Minh City, two in Hanoi and the remaining centres located in Binh Duong, Bien Hoa, Vung Tau and DaNang. You can find more information on each centre on our website.
Our centres are designed, built and equipped to the highest standards, thus providing teachers, employees and students with an excellent study and work environment. We place a strong emphasis on academic quality and this is reflected in our approach to teacher recruitment, development, support and management.

What Positions are Available?

Whether you are a career-minded ELT professional or looking for a new challenge overseas, you will find few opportunities to match those offered by ILA Vietnam.
ILA Vietnam is seeking ELT professionals, to teach English to young learners and adults. Opportunities to teach exam or corporate and exam classes may be available at some training centres. All contracts are 12 months in duration.
What are the Opportunities for Charitable Work?

ILA recognizes the importance of giving something back to the local community and has therefore established the ILA Community Network. Staff and employees can volunteer in charitable projects that include both fundraising events and volunteering options at shelters, orphanages, or a cancer hospital. For many teachers the opportunity to give something back is one of the highlights of their time in Vietnam.

Your email should include:
1. A cover letter and CV with references
