About Program

Cambodia’s demand for ESL and English teaching jobs has been on the rise recently and has been opening opportunities for many teachers to work in the country.

As one of the most exotic locations for recently graduated ESL teachers, Cambodia is an ideal place for those who wish to think out of the box and have an adventure of a lifetime all while teaching English to public and private international schools.

Although previous teaching experience is not strictly necessary, having a TEFL certification will boost employability and salary expectations.

Hiring for ESL and English teaching jobs in Cambodia takes place year-round for teaching positions in public schools and private international schools. Many schools will conduct in-person interviews with ex-pat teachers looking for English teaching jobs in Cambodia.
