Russia Job Listings

As the world’s largest country, Russia unsurprisingly offers huge variety in terms of climate, culture, food and ethnic groups.The capital Moscow is a cosmopolitan mix of historical architecture and fine arts, but is also a major scientific, economic and political hub.With 40% of its area covered in parks and greenery, it is also surprisingly scenic for a city of its size.

Moscow is the best option for finding TEFL jobs in Russia and visiting ESL teachers can also enjoy the brightly coloured gilded domes of ancient Orthodox churches, many of which have recently been restored or rebuilt after their destruction in the Soviet era, providing a stark contrast to the towering Seven Sisters skyscrapers that dot the city.

TEFL jobs in Russia offer teachers the opportunity to experience the country’s rich artistic history, particularly ballet and classical music.The country is also the home of many renowned painters, writers and philosophers.However, entertainment is found not only in the form of concerts and galleries, but sport is also popular throughout the country.The former hosts of both the summer and winter Olympics excel at gymnastics, ice hockey and ice skating, although football is also one of the most popular sports for both spectators and players.

Russia may be well known for its freezing temperatures and long winters, however, due to its large size,the climate is variable throughout different regions, with some coastal areas even boasting a humid sub-tropical climate.The food is similarly varied, with cold soups, pancakes such as blini, cured fish and peasant-style meat dishes all featuring in various forms.Vodka is the most popular choice to wash your meal down with and ward off the winter chill.

English language skills are highly regarded throughout the country, so there are plenty of TEFL jobs in Russia for native speakers with TEFL qualifications in both major cities and rural areas.ESL jobs are available in private language academies, schools and in businesses, with ESL/EFL teachers expected to teach between 24 and 30 hours per week.There are also opportunities to teach all ages, from young children to adults.

TEFL jobs in Russia can offer varied salaries, depending on the area and type of teaching. Generally, ESL teachers can earn the equivalent of £700–£850 per month, with some business contracts offering higher salaries and many ESL teachers also receiving a higher wage after their first year of working.Many EFL teachers also find it possible to supplement their income through private tutoring, however many ESL academies will insist you sign an agreement on starting employment with them that states you will not poach academy students, so it may be necessary to look elsewhere for private opportunities.

It is common for ESL academies to provide shared accommodation or an allowance to cover rent, particularly in the larger cities where it can be expensive.With subsidised accommodation, an ESL teacher’s salary should be enough to live a simple but comfortable lifestyle.

As with salaries, the working hours expected in TEFL jobs in Russia can vary depending on your position.In general, private academy and business ESL classes are likely to be in the morning and evening, in order to fit around student work and study commitments.The academic year runs from September to May, with the main recruitment taking place in August.However, TEFL jobs in Russia do come up year round.
