The jobs board has been live for a little over a week, and has already attracted over 5000 visitors, 160 jobseekers and 60 vacancies in locations from Siberia to Saudi Arabia. In the coming weeks a major international marketing campaign will be launched to promote the jobs board and increase traffic to the site and the number of vacancies.
Anna Drabble, i-to-i’s Marketing Director, says “The sheer number of visitors that our site attracts means that employers will be able to advertise their jobs in a way that is impossible on any other TEFL jobs board. And unlike those other jobs boards, ours focuses on jobs for newly qualified TEFL graduates with little or no teaching experience. We know how hard it can be to land that first job, so we’re doing what we can to help.”
This is the second high-profile development from the market-leading TEFL provider in the last few months. In April they launched the new EDI CertTEFL, a ‘level five’ TEFL certificate that has been certified to the same level as both CELTA and Trinity by The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) and recognised by the British Council. This has further cemented their reputation as the most innovative and fast moving company in the TEFL industry.
Gemma Turner, Managing Director of i-to-i TEFL says, “We spoke with our graduates, and they told us that they needed a place to find decent jobs with reputable schools overseas. And that’s what the job board is all about. We’ve been helping people get top TEFL training for years, and now we can help them find great jobs too. We don’t charge for the service, we just want people to know that if they take one of our courses they will be able to find a good job.”
