Recruiters post hundreds of ESL teacher jobs all over the web and in various publications. You'll see ads from kids schools like Peppy Kids Club to English schools that cater to anyone wanting to learn English from 2 to 92 years of age. like Aeon, ECC etc. and Nova is no exception.
After its implosion and drawn out legal fiascoes, like a phoenix from the fire they're back. (With a "little" help from G. Communications a holding company who handled the restructuring). They did kind of change the name a bit though from Nova to "Nova Holdings". They have returned to the big-hitter stage with 336 schools throughout Japan and has a student count of around 60,000.
Like other Eikaiwas and government run programs like The Jet program, they recruit from abroad which means for many recent graduates who don't want to risk coming to Japan on a tourist visa or landing permit and then look for work, it offers a bit of safety.
In that you won't be scurrying around looking for work under a deadline. They will also sponsor you and take care of getting your apartment lined up for you. They primarily recruit from Vancouver, Tokyo and Osaka.
They have a Customer satisfaction system in place as well. Bronze, silver and gold status (with increased per lesson remuneration) for instructors who score consistently highly in the monthly customer satisfaction survey.
Keep in mind that there are 2 sides to this coin and there have been complaints that salaries decrease if the students' customer satisfaction scores are low or that there are no raises.
As is typical of ESL teacher jobs, expect to work at least one day on the weekend as this is when most adult students have time for their lessons. Also unlike ALT schedules which start in the mornings most eikaiwa work will begin in the afternoon.
Applicants should be forewarned that the 10 minute break in between lessons is not technically a paid break. The company has been battling General Union regarding the technicalities of what is paid and what is not. As well as issues on health insurance / pension payments.
