Employment, training and support for English teachers in Greece

Why Greece?
Job Description

The rate of pay and other benefits that you will receive is determined by each of the schools that we represent, and so the following is only a guide to what is typical. You will be informed of the exact terms and conditions of your employment when we give you an offer of work for a particular school.

You will be guaranteed payment for a minimum of 25 hours per week.

For the academic year 2016 - 2017 , the usual (minimum) hourly rate of pay is 8.13 euros gross, minus 15.89% for your National Insurance contribution, leaving a net balance of 6.84.

Your employer will be responsible for making National Insurance contributions on your behalf. In addition to your contribution of 15.89%, your employer contributes a further 27.97%.

Employers provide furnished accommodation. You will pay only for utilities (electricity & water).

Remember that this is just a summary of typical conditions. You must check the conditions of employment when you are given a particular offer.

Health Insurance

The contributions made by you and your employer to the National Health insurance scheme mean that you are covered for any medical treatment. The extent and level of cover are equivalent to the National Health Service in the UK.


The contributions made by you and your employer to the National Health insurance scheme also count towards your pension entitlement. As long as you are teaching at least eighteen hours per week, your pension is fully paid up. As Greece is a member of the European Union, your pension entitlement is fully transferable to any other member state.

Student Loans

Many of our young recruits have student loans or overdrafts to pay off, and they often ask us if they will be able to make repayments. As long as you are working a minimum of 25 hours per week, you can afford to pay back up to a hundred pounds per month. We are happy to provide a letter to your bank manager. Electronic bank transfers take about three days for the money to arrive in your account, and the bank charges are about six pounds. If you need to pay back more than a hundred pounds a month, Greece probably isn't the right place for you at the moment.

Extra Income

Many teachers supplement their income by offering private lessons, charging about fifteen euros per hour, and in this way it is possible to afford a very high standard of living. In large towns, we can often help you to find extra work if you have time to spare. Remember, though, that you must have the permission of your employer before you arrange any extra lessons.
