Saudi Arabia is undeniably an interesting country. Teaching here, however, is probably one of the most challenging things you could do in your ESL career. For those of you who like to work a little and play hard or even a just enjoy a quiet beer on a weekend, you’d be advised to look elsewhere for work. For female candidates, you should also consider whether you would be comfortable adhering to the Saudi dress codes. Apart from that, if you have an open mind and a willingness to earn BIG money, you should think about searching the Saudi job market. The demand for teachers is constantly on the rise, as are the salaries. Particularly applicants with postgraduate degrees and high level teaching qualifications will be able to find work.
