new Japanese Language Teacher

Description Background
With over 900 employees, London Branch is the largest of Mizuho Bank's offices in EMEA region. We provide an extensive range of corporate lending and deposit-taking activities. Particular strengths include leveraged, structured, asset-based, trade and project finance, supported by a sophisticated treasury operation. We also have certain industrial research capabilities and can provide corporate clients with a range of customised advice.

By employing professionals drawn from many different nationalities, who have specialised knowledge and expertise in their chosen area of finance, we aim to be the best partner for our clients. We seek to meet clients’ needs and adapt to changes in market circumstances. Although based in London, we maintain a global perspective and aim to behave with the highest integrity, making a positive contribution to the global economy and society.

The classes
There are a range of classes, from beginners to colleagues seeking to take the JLPT Levels 4 and 5. The students are using the Japanese for Busy People textbook, and we require a tutor who can continue to work with these textbooks to ensure continuity for our students. Students also communicate directly with the current tutor.

Currently classes take place weekly for 1 hour between business hours over the course of 2 days. We have facilities for classes onsite in our modern offices and can store materials as required. Students are required to complete homework (up to 1 hour per week) and must also prepare for periodic tests to check understanding. Some students have been studying for a number of years, and there are new classes twice a year (subject to demand). Class sizes can range from 2 colleagues to up to 10, and students tend to be enthusiastic students. Many also speak additional languages and are not native English speakers.

Skills and Qualifications required
Those interested should be qualified language teachers, ideally with prior experience teaching Japanese in the UK. You will have experience teaching Japanese to adult learners, adapting your style to their needs. You will be able to design and deliver lessons and tests that are both engaging and challenging.
