Interested in getting paid to travel, live, and teach English in Saudi Arabia?
Because of the number of vacancies, and the challenges of attracting young westerners in their 20s & 30s to such a restrictive environment, schools are more likely to accept teachers with less substantial qualifications than in neighboring countries like the UAE and Qatar. A 4-year university degree & a TEFL certification are typically required.
Salaries & benefits can be excellent, but teachers must be prepared to live in society governed by traditional Islamic law and customs. This bans the use of alcohol and movie theaters, and dictates that most public institutions, including schools are segregated by gender.
Qualified English teachers in Saudi Arabia can realistically expect to make $1,500 - $3,000 tax-free per month. English teaching jobs are concentrated in the cities of Riyadh, Jeddah, Dammam and other larger cities.
