Recruitment for Fall 2021

We are still accepting applications for teaching positions on our programs from applicants who already reside in Japan. For the upcoming fall term, our online positions have now been filled, but we continue to accept applications, including from overseas applicants, who are willing to be on our back-up list. Please read the Application Information for the Fall 2021 Term for more details. Recruitment for the Spring 2022 term will begin in October. More details about recruitment for that term will be available on the website at that time.

To minimize the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19, the majority of Westgate staff are currently working remotely. As a result, if you try to contact us by phone, there may not be any members of staff available to take your call.

Please feel free to contact us via the online inquiry form or by email at westgate_recruiter@westgate.co.jp. Those who have already been put in touch with a recruiter, please contact them by email as usual.
