Romania Job Listings

Though TEFL jobs in Romania are not as readily available as those in other European countries, the welcoming people, splendid scenery and rich cultural history may make the effort of finding an ESL teaching position within this romantic country more than worthwhile.

Having joined the EU in 2007, Romania has certainly shown signs of its intentions to increase international interactions. English, taught to students from the age of nine, has been given great importance since the dissolution of the USSR. Now more than ever, however, the country sees the language as an important tool in forging foreign relations, increasing tourism and improving professional English.

The current lack of ESL positions within the country may therefore be about to change. There has certainly been a steady, if not dramatic, increase in private language academies in the country. Such academies provide the most likely source of TEFL jobs in Romania. Found mainly within the larger cities and the country’s capital Bucharest, such academies can offer steady work with basic but sufficient resources and materials. Salaries in these academies vary, though you will never be earning a competitive amount. With low living costs, however, you will be able to live in relative comfort, only noticing a deficit when travelling outside the country. It should be noted that jobs within these language academies are not always well advertised, meaning many ESL teachers opt to visit the country in order to find a position. This solution may well result in you finding a job, yet it is advisable to budget well and focus your search in large cities during September, January or June. Though a degree is not essential, it may increase your chances of finding work, while a strong EFL certificate is almost always mandatory.

International schools may also offer ESL positions. With more modern resources and higher salaries, these schools may prove to be a preferable working environment. The requirements for finding work, however, will include holding a degree as well as an EFL qualification.

Teachers with experience of business English may find it worthwhile contacting large international companies in the country, as such businesses are increasingly hiring ESL teachers to produce regular courses for their employees.

Though state-run schools are prioritising English in the classrooms, there may be little chance of you finding work in such a situation. The government does not currently have the budget to hire a large number of mother-tongue teachers. Those who are hired are normally in possession of a bachelor’s degree, master’s or equivalent qualification.

Finally, whether working for a school, academy or business, you may also consider teaching private lessons to supplement your salary. Networking and creating good relations with local citizens may allow you to increase your earnings, though you should carefully research the prices which other ESL teachers are charging.

For EU citizens it is extremely simple to complete the red tape involved in gaining a tax number which will allow you to work legally and rent accommodation.
