Azerbaijan Job Listings

A former state of the USSR, Azerbaijan lies at the junction of where Western Asia meets Eastern Europe. It is a fairly new location for TEFL work, but is growing rapidly in popularity. Its location, mixed with its past and present, have created a country containing elements of the both the East and West, ancient and new, making it a truly fascinating country to explore and in which to live. Home to a fabulous coastline along the Caspian Sea and a long and varied history, it is a country that is likely to become increasingly well known globally in the near future.

After the economic and cultural shock of breaking away from Russia, this predominantly Muslim country is now seeking to develop both socially and economically as it learns to make the most of the independence it is slowly beginning to appreciate and grow into. Rich in oil, there is currently plenty of investment being put into the modernisation of both the country’s infrastructure and its citizens, making it an exciting potential destination for TEFL teachers.

The most likely landing spot for an EFL teacher in Azerbaijan is its capital city, Baku. Located on the Caspian Sea, Baku is a diverse and dynamic city that is now booming as the benefits of the country’s oil wealth begin to flow in. Behind the rapidly rising skyline, there are also palaces and towers from the old city to explore, perfect for those who love delving deeper into a city and its history. After a tough day teaching or trekking around the city, sit down and enjoy a nice cup of tea, one of the main loves of the Azerbaijani people. Don’t worry, that glass shaped like a pear and the lump of jam in it are how it’s meant to be!

Head away from the capital city, though, and you find yourself in another world. Choose to explore the captivating and rugged mountainous areas in the north, or enjoy experiencing the wonderfully quaint coastal towns and villages of the south. Known as the land of fire, teachers should make sure they don’t miss the mud volcanoes and Burning Mountain of Absheron, a mountain for which the gas seeping through its rocks causes it to remain ablaze year-round.

Like many developing nations looking to increase their presence in the global marketplace, there is a growing demand for learning English skills and especially business English. It is possible to find TEFL jobs through avenues such as the Peace Corps, one of the international schools, or a growing number of specialist language schools.

Although there are many TEFL jobs available in the capital Baku, teachers looking to really make a difference to the people who need it will want to look further afield. EFL teachers can usually find that they are able to get a salary that allows for a comfortable standard of living, with health insurance and accommodation included. In order to gain a visa you will need a letter of invitation from a company, as well as a bachelor’s degree. Finding a school or agency with a good reputation can help to provide you with the right support and make the process less painful.
