If you would like to teach English at a university in France or the DOM-TOMs for the 2015-2016 school year, job announcements for lecteur/lectrice d’anglais and maître de langue positions are listed below. Both positions require native or near-native fluency in English but the lecteur/lectrice position requires completion of only one year of a Master’s degree (some universities may accept a 4 year Bachelor’s degree since it is Bac+4) while the maître de langue position requires a Master’s degree.
Even if the deadline has passed, you can still send your CV. I sent mine three months after the deadline and still got the job so you really never know. The job listings for 2014-2015 are available here if you’d like to see when most deadlines are and which universities were hiring last year.
There should be more positions available in March/April. I will continue to update this post with any new job listings I find. Thanks Eileen for finding the first one!

If you don’t have the qualifications to teach English at the university level, you can still apply for the Teaching Assistant Program in France if you’d like to work in the public school system. The contract is shorter and the pay is less, but it is good experience to eventually move on to teaching at the university level. Deadlines range from December to March depending on your nationality with positions starting October 1 and ending April 30 of the following year. The program for American citizens, TAPIF, has extended this year’s application deadline until January 29.
