I talked to ICC and from what I have gathered, they have enough English trainers at the moment. I know they are always looking for other language trainers – Spanish, German, and so forth. CONTACT INFO

Leipzig Englisch is always looking. However, they prefer trainers to be close to the city centre, that is, they don’t tend to hire people outside Leipzig city limits. CONTACT INFO 

Sprachenzentrum too is always hiring. They really like their trainers to be CELTA or TEFL certified. CONTACT INFO
