WHAT WE DO

EF’s mission is simple:
opening the world through education.

In the past five decades, our educational programs have helped people of all ages and nationalities become citizens of the world.

Bertil Hult - Founder

At EF, our work changes lives for the better – our products give confidence and freedom to people across the globe. This "for profit, for good" ethos is what motivates our teams to do better work every day and drives our business to grow year on year.

A career with EF combines the support and opportunity of a large organization with the spirit and energy of a small company. We look for thinkers and doers – creative, collaborative and motivated people who are excited by education, communication and travel.

WHAT WE'RE LIKE

01

Entrepreneurial

At EF, we have an entrepreneurial culture where new ideas are heard, creative risks are taken and ownership is encouraged.

Dare to make something happen and you’ll find a supportive team behind you.

02

Innovative

As the world leader in international education, we’re paving new roads for learning – using technology, research and design. Here’s just a few examples of how we’re doing it:

03

International

With 539 schools and offices in 54 countries, and language at the heart of our business, EF is a truly international company.

You’ll see culture and diversity celebrated at all of our locations, and, with such a global reach, you’ll have access to opportunities worldwide.

OUTREACH AND IMPACT

At EF, you’ll find philanthropy and a passion for education.

We’re committed to making a positive contribution to the global community – from our support for good causes and social change, to our efforts to drive progress in the way people learn.

EF & THE OLYMPIC GAMES

We have been appointed a remarkable six times as an Official Supplier and Sponsor to the Olympic Games, including Seoul 1988, Beijing 2008, Sochi 2014, Rio 2016, PyeongChang 2018, and Tokyo 2020.

Currently we are training students, teachers, and the public across South Korea about Olympic and Paralympic sports, concepts, and values as well as raising the English level of Tokyo 2020 staff as they prepare for the Games ahead.

Part of what I love is how EF gets you to the next big thing. It doesn't matter where you are, if you're good, EF makes you GREAT and takes you to places that were not on your 'list' before.
