Working / Volunteering in Lampang

Hello Everyone,

I'm a native Italian, bilingual in English and Spanish. After living 10 years in London and having recently visited Thailand, there is no way I'm going to stay in the UK.

Does anyone know of any reputable websites to look for jobs in Thailand related to foreign languages? I have a degree in languages (English and Spanish) and Translation and Interpreting, but sadly no formal teaching qualifications.

I'd also be happy to know of any solid volunteering opportunities.

One small note: Bangkok is a no go for me.

Thank you ever so much!

Viviana

First to work in Thailand and by Thsi definition volunteering in Thailand needs a work permit and a special visa. Work permits are organised by the employer and then you apply for the visa. Do you need to find an employer first who is looking primarily for someone who has skills or expertise for a job a Thai could not do. Be very careful of organisations who promise this "for a fee".

Good Luck.

Hi,

I'm wondering if you're still in Lampang? I'm looking for a Spanish tutor for a short period of time.
