Explore Korea Through ESL Education

ESLJobsKorea.com is a recruitment firm which places native english speakers looking for their next adventure into top private English academies in Korea. The team at ESLJobsKorea.com combine more than 20 years of educational experience in Korea, both as native English/ESL teachers or school management. Our goal is to streamline the recruiting process to make it as easy as possible for native English speakers to discover the Land of the Morning Calm through ESL teaching in Korea. We do this by first screening applicants by the most basic requirements to teach, then finding their preferences in terms of age, location, and teaching experience, and then lastly matching them with pre-vetted partner academies in Korea. We believe teaching English in Korea can be a great catalyst to explore a new culture, discover more about yourself, and find your next big adventure. We believe this because this has been our experience, both as teachers and as local English academy owners.


Currently, we are only placing native English speakers into private academies in Korea or "hagwons" which provide all necessary visas and follow government rules and regulations.

Discover What Korea Has in Store

The reasons to visit Korea are nearly endless, with the food, unique culture, stunning landscapes, K-pop, and booming tech industry at the top of most people's list, teaching in Korea brings a few other benefits and surprises. One of the main reasons graduates and education professionals flock to Korea for ESL jobs is the high demand, salary, and benefits. All ESL teachers on an E-2 visa, the "teaching visa" in Korea, receive Korea's worldclass national healthcare, pay into the national pension which most teachers get back when they decide to leave, and housing is also paid for either through a stipend or provided housing. The fact that teachers are well-respected in Korea and that Koreans take education seriously make teaching a very rewarding experience and an excellent start to a teaching career or even as a change of pace.
