Urgent! Need English Teacher

Unlock Your Voice

We are looking for people to teach English in public and private schools around Indonesia. You don’t need to have any experience, just an interest in learning. We will give you full training and help you to adjust to the culture here.

About Us

We are still a small company but all our staff are very friendly and social. We are strictly non-profit, so after all salaries and operational costs are paid, the remaining funds will go to helping the needy. We collaborate with orphanages and charity programs around the country, and donate to the Borneo Nature Foundation. We all feel it’s important to protect the amazing environment of this country.


We work with schools all around the country, so if you have a preference on where you want to be placed, we can try to facilitate this. However popular placements like Bali or Lombok we will give preference to the candidates with better qualifications or experience. The majority of our schools are around Jakarta, Surabaya, Bandung and Jogja – there are quieter areas on the outskirts that are more scenic and relaxing, or busier, fun areas for those who prefer fast-paced life.


We are happy to say we offer more than what other language providers will give, especially for teachers who are new to the industry. This will immediately place you in the top percentage of earners in the country, and is enough for a very comfortable living. For example, the apartment I personally am currently renting costs £220/month, has free parking, a large communal pool, and access to a gym all included.

If your feedback is good from the school you are placed at (you teach well, are well dressed, consistently on time) we will increase your salary significantly.

All new-comers will also receive a welcome package to help you settle in.

Job Details

We are seeking passionate individuals to teach English in public and private schools, universities, and corporations across various cities in Indonesia. No prior experience is required, only a keen interest in learning. Comprehensive training will be provided to help you acclimate to the local culture.

Classes typically run between 30 minutes and 1 hour and 15 minutes per session, focusing on conversation and listening skills. Additionally, specialized classes covering writing or IELTS preparation may be offered, with specific details provided once a placement has been secured.

Contract Length

We want applicants to stay for at least a year. All of our current teachers have been here many years and we are confident you will want to stay for a long time too. And of course, the longer you stay the further your career will progress with us.

Booking Time off

We want you to be able to enjoy your time in Indonesia and experience the amazing landscapes and culture here, so booking time off is possible. We just ask you give us as much notice as possible so we can find a substitute teacher for the time you are away exploring.

Start Date

We have contracts beginning in early July.


Indonesia is the most welcoming place I have ever been to. They are absolutely thrilled to have foreigners visit and will treat you like a minor celebrity. Don’t be surprised if you are asked to take selfies often – people here love to brag to their friends that they met a foreigner.

The dances, art, puppetry and activities you can find here are totally unique. But of course, there are plenty of western past times to be found such as sports, cinemas, bowling etc.

The food here is also extremely delicious. We would love to show you around to experience all the amazing flavours.
