Job Summary

Enthusiastic EFL teachers required for a very professional language school to teach all ages, including Cambridge exam preparation. September 2022 - June 2023.

Small Andalusian town that has a very low cost of living and a high quality of life.

Applicants must have EU citizenship or hold a Spanish TIE.

Positions are for highly-motivated teachers with English at first language level, with CELTA or equivalent, degree and a minimum of 1 year of experience teaching groups.

Details of Position

Enthusiastic and committed first language level EFL teachers (C2 level) are required for a very well-run private language school with an excellent reputation, to teach students ranging from 4 years old to teenagers, including Cambridge exam preparation, starting 16th September 2022 in a small Andalusian town that has a very low cost of living and a high quality of life.

Positions are for highly-motivated, native level English teachers who hold a CELTA or equivalent and a degree, and who have a minimum of 1 year of experience teaching young learners and teenagers in groups, as opposed to one-to-one classes. However, Grade A CELTA candidates will be considered with less previous experience/excellent references.

Young learners and teenagers make up our student base and therefore we are extremely interested in teachers who have experience with these groups. We are looking for teachers who genuinely like working with children, believe teaching should be fun and dynamic, and have the necessary enthusiasm and energy.

There are 22 teaching hours per week: Monday to Friday.

We provide opportunities to develop as teachers through in-house training.

There will be Cambridge exam preparation classes (KET, PET, FIRST, ADVANCED and PROFICIENCY). There is a maximum of 11 students per class.

The teaching will essentially be classroom based, however online teaching in the event of a change to online classes due to Covid-19, will be necessary and hybrid teaching will be necessary when students are in quarantine and have to connect from home.

Due to work visa regulations, only EU citizenship or holders of EU work permits, may apply.

The school has a very good reputation and is the largest in the town. It is well-organized, professional and well-resourced with plenty of support and materials for teachers. The work environment is friendly, open and professional, in spacious air-conditioned classrooms (each teacher has their own classroom, so no running from class to class), each equipped with a computer, internet and a projector.

The school is located in Puente Genil, which is in the centre of Andalusia. The town has a population of 30,000 and these positions would suit teachers who prefer a lifestyle away from a big city and who would like the opportunity to experience Spanish life and culture in a town, rather than a city. The plus side of being a town, is that it is extremely cheap to live here. Puente Genil has a train and bus station and is well-situated for seeing Andalusia, being 30 minutes from Cordoba, 2 hours from Malaga, and 1.5 hours from Seville and 2 hours from Granada


Applicants must meet the following requirements:

Have English at first language level (C2 certified).

Have an EU passport or visa to work in Spain, in the case of not having Spanish residency.

Have a CELTA/TEFL/ESOL certificate.

Have a university degree.

Have a minimum of 1 year of experience teaching EFL to all levels (applicants with good CELTA results who have less experience/excellent references will be considered for the post).

Have experience of teaching young children from and teenagers in groups as opposed to 1 to 1 experience.

Have experience of teaching Cambridge KET, PET, FIRST, ADVANCED and PROFICIENCY (although strong candidates without it will be considered if willing to be fully trained in the first term in addition to the above-stated workload).

Have some experience of hybrid teaching if possible.

Have experience of teaching using Powerpoint and digital books (projected onto the board). Candidates without it will be considered if willing to be fully trained in the first term in addition to the above-stated workload.

We guarantee our teachers a maximum of 5 or 6 different levels only, which are then repeated throughout the week, so as to greatly reduce class preparation time.

Paid induction training.

Opportunities to develop as teachers through professional in-house training sessions for 2 to 3 hours a week during the first term.

Full Social Security cover and private accident insurance.

Paid holidays; 2 weeks at Christmas, 1 week at Easter and approx. 7 days of national/local holidays.

Full help given in finding accommodation. In southern Spain, and being a town, not a city, rental prices are extremely low with the average price of a one-bedroom being 350euros/month.

Help is provided in obtaining residency documents. EU passport holders must only apply, as we are unable to obtain residency papers for non-EU passport holders.
