why seif

Seif English Academy, one of Madrid’s most popular language schools, is always on the lookout for dynamic, qualified teachers who can create a vibrant and communicative learning environment.  We offer full-time positions with paid vacations and we do not close in the summer. We hire native teachers, and candidates are expected to demonstrate a high level of language awareness and a passion for teaching.

If you are interested in joining our staff send us your CV with a recent photograph and your contact details to

RequirementsWe expect teachers to have a recognised TEFL certificate and to be university graduates. We employ teachers from across the English-speaking world. Our only requirements are that teachers be fully native and legal residents. For legal reasons we can only employ teachers who have their papers in order (i.e. NIE and social security number).

We are also looking for teachers who are in it for the long run: We provide year-long permanent contracts so as to encourage long-term commitment to the school.

While we do accept CVs from teachers with only a year of experience, we prefer candidates with at least two years of experience.

While at Seif…

Our staff room is well stocked with many of the latest textbooks and other resources. We have books for general English, exam preparation, business English, conversational English and many more.

All classrooms are equipped with computers, allowing teachers to use any online resources or personal material. Audiovisual material, most notably mp3s for the textbooks, is also available on all computers.

All students at Seif are adult, and generally speaking, come to classes of their own volition. Accordingly students come willing to learn but also to have a good time doing so. This is reflected in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere in the school, whether in the classes or among the teachers. At Seif, teachers can expect a a lot of support from the administration team and their colleagues. We are given the opportunity to observe one another’s classes to share ideas and provide constructive criticism.

We look forward to hearing from you if you meet the basic requirements and are interested in joining our team.
