People Recruit, a recognized and reputable ESL teacher recruiting company in Korea is looking for university graduates from English-speaking countries who are ready to embark on a teaching adventure.

We have many different teaching opportunities throughout Korea. Hundreds of ESL teachers have come to the ROK to explore this once in a lifetime teaching experience.

We will provide an E-2 teaching visa if you sign up for a one year contract with one of the top schools we recruit for.

We are recruiting English teachers for schools in the following cities:

Seoul, Busan, Daegu, Ulsan, Gwangju, Daejeon, Gimhae, Yangsan, Masan, Pohang, Jinju and more.

Some cities are very large others are mid to small size, so whatever your preference is, we can match the right location to fit your needs. We want you to be comfortable and happy.

Here are the qualifications you’ll need to teach English in Korea:

  • You must be a native English speaker from the United States, Canada, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, or South Africa.
  • You must hold a recognized university degree but DO NOT need any teaching qualifications. However, if you have a TEFL/TESOL certificate you will have a chance at the better jobs.

The teaching salary range is 2.1 million Korean won to 2.3 million Korean won per month. Your wage will be deposited directly into your Korean bank account each month. Korean income taxes will be deducted accordingly.

Once you complete a 12 month teaching contract you will qualify for severance pay. This amount is equal to 1 month’s pay. You must complete a 1 year contract to receive your severance bonus.

Teaching hours are approximately 30 hours each week. You’ll teach Monday to Friday with most schools.

Your school will sign you up to receive Korean health insurance. You will receive the same medical services and drugs as Korean nationals.

The school will also give you a place to live. This usually includes an apartment which is rent free. Your apartment is normally close to your school or close to public transportation to your school.

Utilities such as water, gas and electricity are not paid by your employer. You will be responsible for these yourself, or with your roommates (if you have them).

As part of your annual contract you will receive 13 Korean national holidays and 10 days of paid vacation.

The students you teach will range from kindergarten to middle school.

There are two schedule types:

Schedule 1:

Teaching hours will be from 2:00 pm until 9:00 pm daily.

These teaching hours could vary 1 hour earlier or later, but the maximum hours will still remain at 7 hours per day.

Very nice recruiters but sometimes they'll send teaching offers from mediocre hagwons. They are very friendly and will make you feel comfortable but be sure to do your research on the school they present you with. Then, find a teacher who has worked at the school via Facebook, Linkedin or a Google search

The recruiters are People Recruit are actually ex-ESL teachers so they speak English well. No communication issues.
