Spanish teaching positions

At Spark we offer Spanish teaching positions as well as teaching positions combined with other responsibilities like client attention, receptionist work, group chaperone and cultural event organization. Below is a general guideline to the types of positions we have, however please note usually the roles of the positions overlap, especially in quieter moments of the year.

Type of candidates we look for

At Spark we pride ourselves on our people development skills. Therefore we like to find young talented individuals, looking to not just be a teacher but also use other skills they have. We are a hard working but very supportive team and look for candidates who believe in these values. We seek to reward capable individuals who want to prove themselves by contributing more to our mission, not just monetary but also with opportunities to bring out their hidden talents at an early age.  In all positions, an intermediate level of English is required. It is more important to us the candidate have a desire to self-develop than it is they have experience, although of course the later with the former is preferred. For more about us refer to our values and vision page and to “who we are pages” on Spark Spanish site.
