10 Reasons to Work for TLG

Divider

1. We’re committed to continuing professional development

You receive at least 32 hours of paid training every year. It covers a range of hard and soft skills, and is designed to help you excel in your role. This amounts to more than 2.5 hours of training a month and at least 40 minutes each week.

In addition to formal training sessions, you have 24/7 access to our learning and development portal. It includes answers to common questions, tips for lesson delivery, and a whole host of other information relating to the trainer role and our organization.

We also invest in career progression. When you’ve worked with us for over 12 months, you can receive training in coaching and management, so you can work towards the role of Senior Trainer.

1. We only work with professional clients

TLG only works with serious and dedicated businesses, which means no screaming children or grumpy teenagers! All our clients are adults who are often experts in their field. We become their trusted advisors and help them see real-world results with their English.

3. We offer a generous and flexible annual leave package

Italian public holidays are paid for full-time staff (and for part-time staff, if they fall on a working day). In addition, we offer 25 days of paid holiday, bringing the total to 38 days. This translates to 6 weeks of paid leave each year.

We also offer 4 days of paid hourly leave – called permesso – that can be taken for administrative or health matters (such as visiting the doctor or the bank during the working week).

Requesting leave couldn’t be simpler – just head to the learning and development portal and fill in a quick form. Our digital calendar takes care of rescheduling your students, so you don’t have anything to worry about while you’re gone.

4. We’re serious about our environmental responsibilities

When you think of English teaching, do you imagine textbooks, notebooks and thousands of printed worksheets?

Think again.

TLG is a paperless company. Not only do we hold an ISO environmental certification, but we’re also committed to minimizing our environmental impact. And we encourage those who work with us to do the same.  

5. We support you through life’s ups and downs

No one should have to be worrying about work when they’re unwell. At TLG, absences because of sickness, injury or hospital visits are all paid via the INPS (Italian social security and welfare office) scheme. You just need to provide a valid doctor’s note covering the period of absence.

Are you planning on starting a family? We provide both maternity and paternity leave for expectant parents. Whenever possible, we provide unpaid leave for caregivers, for example if a child is sick or there are problems with childcare.

We also offer honeymoon leave. Newlyweds are entitled to paid marriage leave for 15 calendar days, to be used within a month of the wedding.

6. Hard work pays off

We believe that hard work and commitment should be rewarded, which is why we operate a bonus scheme (usually discussed during your yearly appraisal).

We appreciate that monetary bonuses are heavily taxed, so we also offer to convert the bonus’ value into other perks, such as computers, tablets or even airline tickets.

7. We offer above-average remuneration

We employ people with strong academic backgrounds, many of whom have had successful careers in business, and who bring a wealth of experience and skills to TLG. In return, we offer a competitive remuneration package, above the national average.

A TLG trainer’s salary is divided into 13 payments, which means you receive the 13th payment (the tredicesima) of your salary during December. Just in time for Christmas shopping!

8. We reward you for helping us grow the business

We know that recommendations are a powerful marketing tool. We therefore offer an internal bonus (or “finder’s fee”) for referring clients to TLG.

TLG staff have the potential to earn 5% of the contract value for a successful introduction to a new individual client. It goes up to 10% of the contract value for a successful introduction to a new organization (when the contract is won).

9. There’s no time wasted or hanging around between lessons

Your lessons are block booked in one client location. In gaps between lessons or when you have a cancellation, you’re paid to complete admin and other tasks.

We make sure you’re not standing around for hours without being paid. If you do need to move between clients or attend training, we reimburse you for your time.

10. We always maintain a happy and healthy work/life balance

TLG is made up of a diverse team of passionate, interesting and motivated individuals from all walks of life and all corners of the world. We embrace these differences and are fully committed to maintaining a positive workplace culture. We work in a high-level business environment delivering an exceptional professional service – but as a team, we’re also creative, fun and supportive.

Our office hours are 9am to 6pm, Monday to Friday. Full-time trainers work 38 hours per week, which means they have the option to start at 11am or leave at 4pm on one of these days. We also offer a variety of part-time contracts.

Unlike some other teaching positions, you’re never expected to work overtime – and there’s no time spent working on lesson plans during evenings and weekends.

In Their Own Words

Since I joined The Language Grid in 2014, I've never had a boring day at work. Not many employees can say that about their job, but then not many organizations boast a working culture that is as dynamic and innovative as TLG's. For me, my job is all about the people I work with. These people include both my students, in whose results I am infinitely invested, but also my colleagues, whose progression and achievements are inextricably interlinked with my own. I'm proud to work for a company that believes in its values and always pushes me to aim higher.

Emma

Trainer
Working at TLG taught me a lot about organization, independence, and initiative-taking. I enjoyed being part of a dynamic team and receiving full support from my seniors, as well as being able to work on my own for the most part. The work-load is very manageable and the limited movements from one student to the next are a huge plus. As with any new teaching and training job, if the beginning seems a little overwhelming, what with scheduling, monitoring, and getting familiar with new set materials, it quickly becomes second nature. Also, thanks to the tight-knit nature of the school and its clients, rapport development with students is natural and extremely rewarding. I would highly recommend working with TLG!

It's easy to get out of bed in the morning when your job is to help interesting, intelligent people perform better. Every TLG trainer has their own student success stories because of their work. All of these stories are a testament to the innovative content we deliver and our proprietary digital platform, but just as importantly to the skills and professionalism of the team we have.

TLG builds on your strengths and helps you to design your own career path. The best thing about working for TLG is that everyone is included in the changes, growth and progression of the company.
