Job description

We are looking for an energetic and enthusiastic teacher to join our team from January to June 2020. Applicants must have English at first language level, a university degree and appropriate 120 hour TEFL qualification. Previous teaching experience of different ages and levels, especially young learners and teens is essential. Knowledge of Cambridge exams would be an advantage, as would some knowledge of Spanish.

The position involves mainly teaching general English to children and young learners (4-18 years) and Cambridge exam preparation (B1 level). We also have one-to-one adult students learning general and business English.

The contract is for 25 teaching hours per week. There is no weekend work and holidays are paid at Christmas and Easter. Full paid, in-house training is provided at the start of the contract and on-going training sessions are held throughout the academic year. Part time positions also available.

Inlingua Lorca is a small, friendly language school with British management. Opened in 1986, our school is located in the town centre of Lorca in the south-east province of Murcia. Our teaching team provides high quality language training for children, young learners, adults and companies in the local area.

Lorca is in the region of Murcia in the south-east of Spain and has a population of around 80,000. It is a typical bustling Spanish town with everywhere a short walking distance away. It is a great place to learn and practice Spanish with language exchange groups taking place frequently near the school during the week. There are many bars and restaurants serving tapas, typical of the region, and plenty of cafés to sit outside and enjoy the 320 days of sunshine which Lorca has each year. The coastal town of Aguilas (30km from Lorca) is easily reached by train and bus, as is Murcia, the capital city of the region. The nearest airports to Lorca with bus and train connections are Alicante and Murcia.
