Teachers at Interlang for over 4 years?
50 – we are pleased to say that we have a relatively small teacher turnover.
Qualification requirements for employment?
Preferably a University Degree and CELTA or equivalent but what we are really looking for are career teachers who love teaching.
Experience requirements for employment?
Preferably a minimum of two years teaching experience. A good knowledge of Spanish would be an advantage but not essential. Experience in a business environment prior to EFL teaching an added advantage.
Hire at a distance?
Though we are quite happy to set up an initial Skype interview, we do insist on seeing all candidates in person before making them an offer. We are of course happy to arrange interviews for people coming to Madrid. Interlang hire teachers on both a part and full-time basis both on contract and freelancers. Teachers must be fairly smartly dressed as they are teaching professionals in company.
Hire Americans and do their papers?
We only hire non-EU citizens who already have working papers but will hire any native speakers regardless of where they are from.
Preference for British or Americans?
No preference whatsoever. We will employ native speakers from any country. We are quite happy to hire native speakers from any country as long as they can legally work in Spain.
