Job description

CELTA/Trinity CertTESOL (or similar) qualified English language teachers are required from September 2021 to June 2022.
We are Akerlei Idiomas, a small, close-knit academy located in Ermua (Basque Country, north of Spain) and we are looking to add to our team of hard-working, friendly teachers. If you’re looking for an authentic, enriching experience here in the Basque Country, please find more details below.
We are offering a contract for the current academic year on a full-time basis. This contract is renewable subject to mutual consent.
The academy runs classes from 7:00am – 9:30pm on Monday to Friday, so applicants must be prepared to teach a class at any point during these hours. The average teaching week is 25 hours (not including administration and planning time). We offer various English courses, including general English, business English and preparation for official Cambridge English exams.
Successful candidates will have a university degree as well as a CELTA or Trinity CertTESOL certificate (or equivalent), as well as one year’s previous experience in General English, teaching adults, young learners, and/or Business English. Experience teaching preschoolers and preparing students for Cambridge English exams will be highly valuable.
Successful applicants will also be willing to learn, have an open mind, and be prepared to take advantage of a unique experience living in the Basque Country!

Minimum gross salary of 1419 euros per month.

Full administrative support will be provided upon arrival: we will help you get the papers you need as well as helping you open a bank account. Unfortunately, we cannot consider applications from non-EU citizens who do not hold a valid work permit.


We are looking for enthusiastic, hard-working teachers to join us for the coming school year (from September 2021 to the end of June 2022) in Ermua, a town perfectly located in the middle of the Basque Country (north of Spain). Teachers will be required to teach children, teenagers, and adults of all levels.
The average teaching week is 25 hours a week, Monday to Friday. Most of the lessons are in the afternoon or evening, but it is possible that some classes will take place in the morning.
The contract is a full, legal, Spanish contract providing full health and Social Security cover. The Christmas, Easter, and national holidays are paid.
Full assistance with accommodation for teachers is provided in Eibar, a vibrant city a short distance from Ermua (due to the nature of the living arrangement, it is not possible to accommodate applicants’ partners).
