Mission Search is recruiting English teachers to work in some of Saudi Arabia’s top universities. Saudi Arabia universities require all of their students to take 1 year of English no matter what their major is. Because of this unique rule, these institutes have a high demand for English speakers on their staff, and they’re willing to offer generous pay for native English speakers from America.
Our candidates need to have a bachelor’s degree in education (master’s degree preferred) to take part in this amazing opportunity. Through Mission Search’s comprehensive training program, we provide our candidates with the knowledge and confidence they need to be a successful teacher.
From application to arrival, Mission Search will take care of you. Our highly trained recruiters will support you every step of the way from the visa process through to classroom training. We know it can be confusing, but we’re just an email or call away if you have any questions. Once you arrive in Saudi Arabia, you’ll go through a series of sessions led by our regional support team. Our team is with you when you arrive and throughout your entire stay abroad.
Candidates applying to teach abroad need to be native English speakers with a master’s degree in education preferred although a bachelor’s degree is also acceptable. To teach English as a foreign language anywhere in the world, you are required to have a TEFL certification (see below).
The official language of Saudi Arabia is Arabic, but you do not need to know this language to be a teacher there! Most people in this region speak English at a first-grade level, so it is enough for essential communication. Native English speakers will have little to no trouble communicating with locals at restaurants, shops, museums or wherever you decide to visit during your free time.
TEFL stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language. It is a required certification for any international English-teaching service. TEFL is a relatively short qualification course that ensures consistent understanding in regards to grammar, spelling, classroom management, and lesson planning. With a TEFL certification, you will have all the tools you need to be a successful and knowledgeable teacher of English in Saudi Arabia.
TEFL certifications should be available through your accredited university while you complete your degree. Most education degrees require a TEFL certification before graduation, so if you majored in education, you might already be TEFL certified!
