What do language schools look for in new English language teachers?

If you're thinking about applying for an ELT job, this should be useful!
Gabriel Leslie, a Director of Studies in a private language school in the UK got in touch with me recently after a spate of interviews with potential teaching staff who had done 'TEFL' certificates rather than a course such as CELTA or Trinity Cert TESOL.
His POV is probably a useful one for some of you in the early stages of your career.
