    TEFL Recruitment Agencies

    Good morning/afternoon/evening,

    I have recently completed a CELTA course and now wish to work abroad. I like the idea of going via an agency for my first placement but have had very little luck, via Google, in finding any that specialise with TEFL.

    All suggestions are welcome.

    KR,

    TT

    Re: TEFL Recruitment Agencies

    Why do you want an agency? Many agencies are not very reliable, and some are interested only in obtaining a fee from employers, employees, or even both.

    I have always preferred to deal with the school direct or, in the case of chains, with the chain's recruiting office. There are always lots of jobs at Welcome - TEFL.com. There are other sites too, but I found a couple of good jobs through tefl.com

    To be honest, I would just answer ads for that part of the world.
