As part of our commitment to helping course graduates find the right jobs to suit their plans, we have developed close working relationships with some of the best recruitment companies in the field of ESL teaching. Finding a teaching position through a recruitment company has many advantages and one of the most popular is the fact that you can make all the necessary arrangements before you leave home. Also, by following this route most of the paperwork will be taken care of by the recruitment company which removes a lot of the hassle that is associated with starting a new job in a foreign country. This convenient approach to employment is particularly popular with graduates who are new to foreign travel and have yet to set foot in the international teaching world.
It is also important to point out that using a recruitment company won’t cost you a penny as all the fees associated with the process are paid by the employers who use their services. It is generally a good idea to sign up with a few different recruitment companies as this will give you a wider range of potential jobs to choose from. If you like the sound of securing a teaching position before you leave home and you want someone else to sort out all the arrangements, going through a recruitment company might be the right option for you. Wherever you dream of living and working, at ITTT we have many different ways to make it happen.
