Careers with ELA

General

We are often looking for additional staff to work for the various areas in which we operate.  We offer a friendly and supportive working environment, and a lot of contact with interesting people from a wide range of backgrounds.  We also encourage staff to further their own professional development and to take part in periodic workshops.

This is the kind of background we are ideally looking for:

  • Very good English
  • Tertiary-level qualification (preferably a degree)
  • Teaching qualification (from NZ or from your own country)
  • Experience teaching your language to non-native speakers
  • Demonstrable interest in language and in language teaching
  • Ability to arouse enthusiasm among others for your language and culture
  • Desire to go along with and contribute to our brand and image
  • Right to work in New Zealand

  • Experience teaching your language to non-native speakers preferred
  • Ability to identify and explain cultural differences between New Zealand and your country or culture
  • Desire to go along with and contribute to our brand and image

In most cases, employment is on a casual basis initially, and is nearly always part-time.  We welcome enquiries from people who are self-employed.  Most prospective staff need to be available for work in the evenings.
