Job description & Contract

-Length of Contract

E-2 Visas require contracts to be for one year / Short term contracts are also available.

We have job offers all over Korea. If there is a special area you'd like to work, or if you have preferences like small cities, big cities, or somewhere near a coast, please let us know and we will let you know as soon as a job becomes available somewhere you'd like.


To qualify for the E2 work visa and a teaching job as an ESL instructor, you must be an English native speakers, which means that you have to come from the United Kingdom, United States, Australia, Canada, New Zealand or South Africa. You must also have a University degree. You are not required to have teaching qualifications, although having them will mean that you are able to get better jobs.

Your salary will be in the range of 2,100,000 - 2,300,000 won a month, depending on your qualifications and experience. You will be paid monthly, either directly in cash to you or to your Korean bank account.
-Severance Pay

At the completion of your 12-month contract, you will be entitled to a severance package of one months average salary. Some institute owners try to arrange 50 or even 51-week contracts in order to avoid this, but we refuse to refer any teachers to these.

You will be expected to teach about 30 hours a week. Most jobs are Mon to Friday.

Your employer will take out Korean taxes from your salary before giving them to you.

Your employer will enroll you in the Korean Medical Insurance Union, which entitles you to the same rate for medical services and prescriptions as for Korean citizens (uninsured rates are much higher).
