Recruitment process



Successful applicants will be invited for a preliminary interview via Skype.



Successful interviewees will be invited to an initial Learnlight training process.



Candidates who successfully complete the training process will receive information regarding the documentation needed to get started with the team.

The entire process usually takes no more than ten hours and is broken up into digestible chunks over a two week period.

“From the moment I started working for Learnlight, I really appreciated the full support and training I was given from the team and team leader. Everything is transparent and there are often new opportunities to develop professionally. You really feel appreciated. Above all, the system really works and I love the fact that most learners and students seem to really appreciate us helping them with a vital skill for life, and the study plan which is set out for them. They often tell me how much they find it useful or are enjoying their course and some much prefer to have an English session rather than working! For those who wish to have flexible working hours and not have to face a daily commute this is a really great job. Go for it and you won't regret having chosen Learnlight!”
“Working for Learnlight is a wonderful opportunity to meet people from all over the world without ever having to hop on a plane! Each coaching session gives you the opportunity to not only help someone gain confidence in their English-speaking abilities but also to get to know them as a person. I love it when a student tells me that they've thoroughly enjoyed a discussion we've had or that they have learned so much from me and that our time together has been really helpful, it makes one feel like they're making a real contribution in someone's professional and even personal life.”
“I find working for Learnlight rewarding because you are able to see the students make progress and help them to achieve their objectives. The platform provides excellent up-to-date resources which makes the sessions interesting and varied. It is also really easy to personalise a session to a student’s particular tastes or interests. No two days are ever the same, for example I can be working with a student preparing a presentation, doing a role play on complaining in a restaurant or discussing current affairs. Teaching with Learnlight is also a fantastic way to discover other cultures and to keep up- to-date with what’s happening around the world! ”

"Being a Learnlight trainer has been an extremely positive experience for me as a teacher. It's a refreshing change from overly structured, micromanaged instruction, where your boss is breathing down your neck. You have autonomy, but if you have a question, or make a mistake, there's a support team in place to help guide you. You can make the decision as an instructor to go more quickly or slowly, challenge students, or review with them, based on what they require. Beyond that, the community is trustworthy. They pay on time, and offer you new, different opportunities based on your skill set and their needs. It's a great place to work!"
