Find the teachers you need in one weekend

London, 19-20 January 2019

Tes International smartMatch Fair London

19 - 20 January 2019


Radisson Blu, Portman Hotel, London W1H 7BG

With increasing demands for quality education and growing competition, recruiting the right members of staff for your school can be both tough and time consuming. But what if you could meet and interview the teachers you need in one weekend? That’s just what you can do when you attend one of our International smartMatch Recruitment Fairs.

You’ll be able to meet and interview teachers from our 11.9 million strong global community who are actively looking for opportunities at international schools. We’ll also contact you before the event to discuss your vacant roles and the types of candidates you’re looking for. We’ll then match your vacancies with the most compatible teachers attending, and pre-arrange interviews with those candidates, giving you the best possible opportunity of finding the right teachers for your roles.

In a recent survey*, 89% of UK teachers told us that Tes is the first place they look when they’re considering a new role and 65% said they would be interested in working internationally. When it comes to finding the right teachers for your school, we can help you connect with the best UK-trained and internationally experienced educators.


Why should your school attend?

If your international school is looking to recruit high quality, UK-trained teachers who hold Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) or another internationally recognised teaching qualification (e.g. PGCE or iPGCE) you could benefit from attending these events.  

Last year, more than 40 international schools joined us at our smartMatch Recruitment Fairs in London and were able to have face to face conversations with c.350 teachers per event.
