Teaching English and other language-related work
There’s a high demand in Russia for English teachers with TEFL qualifications, mostly in schools in Russia’s main cities and large towns but also within Russian businesses. As many of these jobs are part-time and not very well paid, some people work at several different places at the same time. You may also be able to get a language teaching job in Russia if your first language is French, German, Spanish or Italian. These language teaching companies are worth a look: BKC English, EnglishFIrst and Language Link Russia, and there are many others.
There are also opportunities for translation and/or editing work in Russia. See Language Interface for this type of work. Many international companies have in-house editors, translators and language teachers, so look on their websites and apply directly.
Embassies and consulates
Check out the websites of embassies, cultural centers or consulates in Russia to see what job opportunities are available – you don’t necessarily have to be a national of a particular embassy/consulate to work for it. Depending on the diplomatic mission and type of work (some jobs may have security restrictions), jobs may be open to nationals, the spouses or partners of nationals, or to those of any nationality who have residency or the legal right to work in Russia.
