Tes International Recruitment Fairs: five reasons to attend

Our programme of International Recruitment Fairs begins this year in Manchester on 16 and 17 November. It’s the perfect opportunity to meet candidates who may be the perfect fit for your school and are serious about teaching abroad.

International Recruitment Fairs

Here’s five reasons you should attend:

1. Recruit the teachers you need in one go

Recruiting top-quality teachers can be difficult, time-consuming and costly. So, when hundreds of motivated, talented teachers will be in one place, all interested and open to new teaching opportunities, make sure your school is there to meet them. More than 950 candidates, covering 20 subjects registered to attend our last event* in London.  See highlights from our last International Fair in London.

2. High-quality candidates  

We’ve a rich heritage in connecting the right teacher, with the right opportunity, in the right school. Tell us about your school and roles so we can match you with teachers who are interesting in hearing about new, overseas opportunities.

3. Our support

Before the event, you’ll receive profiles of suitable candidates, and if you’re happy with them, we’ll pre-arrange interviews for you to carry out at the event. You’ll also be able to interview teachers you meet on the day.

4. Showcase your school

Your school is unique and, for one teacher, it may offer the role they have always dreamed of in their ideal location. At our Recruitment Fairs, we give you the chance to showcase your school, to share your ethos and opportunities and meet and greet high-quality teachers from NQTs to middle leaders who are looking to make the move abroad.

5. A new, unique way to recruit

It goes without saying, interviews are stressful. Our Recruitment Fairs, are a chance for schools to have relaxed, informal chats with teachers and discover if they’re a good fit for your school.

Here’s what Steve Allen, headteacher at Lady Elanor Holles School, China had to say about the Recruitment Fair last year:

‘I’d encourage other headteachers to come, I think it’s worthwhile and it’s great exposure for your school. It’s a great way to meet new people and I think the support Tes offers is fairly unique.’
