    Experience requirements for employment?

    Hire at a distance?
    For the normal school year (September to June) we recruit locally (however there can be some exceptions) for summer camp programs we sometimes conduct initial telephone interviews.

    Hire Americans and do their papers?
    We will hire Americans but only if they have either obtained papers previously or have dual nationality which allows them to work in Europe.

    Preference for British or Americans?
    There is no preference. Our students request a variety of accents.

    Estimated teachers hired yearly:
    The figures vary greatly from year to year and centre to centre. We currently have over 150 teachers on our staff of which perhaps 25 – 35% joined this year.

    Teachers at Berlitz for over 4 years?

    Best part about working at Berlitz:
    There are a number of great reasons to work at Berlitz. The finely honed, user-friendly method developed over 128 years is certainly one of them. Also, the feeling of working in a large multinational alongside people from so many diverse cultures, with such a variety of sources to draw on, makes it an exciting, creative and dynamic environment while, at the same time, maintaining a personal and friendly atmosphere. Furthermore, our contracts offer a level of stability that few others can.

    Offer teacher training or development along with job?
    Every teacher goes through an initial training course. There are also additional on-line development modules, lesson observations, feedback sessions, and workshops.

    Starters' average salary?
    We mainly collaborate with ‘autónomo’ (freelance teachers). Rates will be discussed in the interview.
