Welcome to the Candidate Information Page for the Search Associates London-January Job Fair 2018

Thanks for your interest in our London January Job Fair. Candidates may request an invitation to this job fair from August 16, 2017 (read below). On this page, find information and updates (as they are posted). We assume you have already read the General Information summarising the Fair's nature and candidate fit. If you have not, please do so now.

If you wish to attend the fair you must be an activated Search candidate. Request an invitation from your home Associate from your dashboard in your Search account. The bullets below are important. Please read them.

  • The first attendance day of this fair for candidates is Thursday, January 18, 2018.
  • You MUST arrive between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 18 for the reasons given below. It is your responsibility to make leave and travel arrangements appropriate to that time and date. Candidates may not join the fair late. We will show flexibility ONLY in the event of unplanned travel delay or personal emergency.
  • Here is the "why" of the above. Thursday, January 18 is an extremely important day for you, during which school presentations begin at noon. You need to attend an orientation meeting with the Fair Organiser, and locate your communication folder and the schools' communication folders. In advance of Friday's early morning interview sign-up, you should study the updated vacancy lists posted in the Candidate Lounge, in order to make preliminary contact with schools having vacancies that interest you. Additionally, informative, helpful workshop sessions are provided for candidates on this day. Please see the scheudle fo rdetails of these.
  • The venue is the Millennium Gloucester Hotel and Conference Centre, Kensington, London. Candidates rooms are in another Fair Hotel - the adjoining, connected Millennium Baileys Hotel. It is more convenient, but not required, for candidates to stay in the Fair Hotel - it affords a private on-site refuge (your hotel room) in which to reflect. We facilitate room sharing for candidates through our Search Associates Facebook page.
  • The Fair Schedule for Candidates will be available on this page before June 1, 2017.
  • Very near the date of the fair, we provide you via download with a personal digital copy of the schedule and all other documents for the fair, and about all the attending schools. This frees you from reliance on the internet for school information. Limited hard copy only is supplied to you. We also offer a fair portal, which acts like an app, to help you manage your experience of the fair.
  • You do need to have with you a laptop or tablet. Warning - if you have a tablet, you may be unable to open schools' own information for prospective candidates, which may be provided on an external drive or disk.
  • Recruiters will have secure access to your full Search file and confidential references during the job fair. It is prudent, however, to hand a résumé to recruiters at interview sign-up and at interviews themselves. This is both an aide-mémoire for recruiters, and a document on which they can make notes about you.
  • Bring with you:
    1. 25 2-side maximum A4 or Letter size résumés, with photo
    2. a laptop or tablet computer for accessing digital information at the fair. Most information provided is digital.

Please email any questions to Amelia Ren-Hayden on ahayden@searchassociates.com

  6. You MUST be able to attend between 10 a.m. and 5p.m. on Thursday January 18 2018. Self-registration, your orientation meeting, contacting and receiving contacts from schools, and personal preparations will mean time is at a premium.

ARE YOU A FIT?

This very competitive fair - Search Associates' largest - attracts schools from all over the world, and traditionally enjoys a strong placement rate. Recruiters are seeking experience in delivering the programmes indicated below. It has an integral Leadership Section.

  • EXPERIENCE
    1. This is a fair where recruiters seek candidates with prior international school experience of teaching the IB PYP, MYP and Diploma; IGCSE and International A Level; UK National Curriculum; IPC & IMYC.
    2. Exceptions: teachers domestically experienced in & seeking shortage subjects/areas : Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics HL, French plus Spanish, Early Childhood and KG, Music, Elementary PE, Elementary Art & Design, Special Education, Counselors, Apple-experienced technology integrators, and Librarians will find success here.
    3. Candidates with prior international school experience, who can demonstrate a material commitment to gaining IB experience (i.e. training undergone) can also attend, but will find it very much more challenging to get interviews.
    4. Candidates with only domestic school (not international school) classroom teaching experience in the UK and Ireland, North America and Australia/NZ, (often seeking a position in a school in Europe), are typically unsuccessful unless they teach a shortage subject listed in 2. above.

  • LEADERSHIP SECTION
    1. This fair has a leadership section. Appropriate leadership candidates realistically seek responsibility positions above Department/Subject Head or Chair. They should have previously held a responsibility post senior to that level in an international school. The section includes Counselors and Athletics Directors.
    2. Candidates who have held leadership positions in domestic schools only, even if they have international school teaching experience, are unlikely to succeed in this context. Such candidates should register as regular teaching candidates only. If in doubt, please consult your own Senior Associate.
    3. Leadership candidates must indicate on their registration form their wish to participate in this section of the Fair. We customised the acceptance form to facilitate this.

SEARCH LONDON-JANUARY LEADERSHIP SECTION

Leadership (Administrative) Candidates are those with prior international school leadership experience*, seeking positions above the level of Department Head/Department Chair, with responsibility spanning at least one year-grade. Leadership Candidates may also interview for regular teaching positions at this fair, in addition to leadership positions. The Section includes Counselors and Athletic Directors. At the Fair itself, there is a dedicated Interview Sign-up Session for Leadership Candidates, before the regular Interview Sign-up begins. Otherwise, the section is integral to the rest of the Fair.

Examples of leadership positions are: Heads of School, Principals; PYP, MYP and Diploma Coordinators; Grade Level Coordinators; CAS / Community and Service Coordinators; MYP Areas of Interaction Leaders; IB Workshop Leaders and Trainers (usually integrally to another responsibility position); Counselors; Athletics Directors; Year Heads.

Candidates in the Leadership Section will already have appropriate prior experience and qualifications to fill key positions in international schools with IB PYP, MYP and Diploma programmes, and/or British International System Programmes - IPC, IMYC, IGCSE, and International A Level.

*Candidates with leadership experience in domestic systems only are typically unsuccessful in securing similar roles in their first international post. They should recruit for regular teaching positions only and should not apply to the leadership section.

Registration for the leadership section is indicated by candidates on their response to the invitation to attend the Fair, sent to them by their Senior Associate. If you are unsure of your eligibility for the Leadership Section, please contact your Senior Associate, or Gez Hayden, for advice, before requesting an invitation to this job fair.
