January 6 - 8, 2023
Fair Organizers: Nick Kendell, Harry Deelman
A major recruiting opportunity for internationally experienced teachers looking to work in exceptional schools.
Thank you for your interest in the Bangkok 2023 Fair.
School registrations will open June 1st, 2022.
Teacher registration will open August 16, 2022.
Search Associates registered candidates wishing to recruit in Bangkok should request an invitation from their senior associate via their dashboard on or after that date.
As a fair early in the recruiting season, the Bangkok Fair favours strong teaching couples and singles without dependants. The numbers in attendance are expected to be about 300-400 candidates and 80-100 schools.
The schools recruiting at this fair come from a wide variety of locations worldwide, with many attending from Asia. Search Associates-registered candidates, of all nationalities and all standard specialist fields in schools, are welcome to request an invitation to attend this fair. Please read the (FAQs) about Job Fairs if you have any questions.
If your school is interested in attending this fair, please contact Nick Kendell
Because of the large number of schools regularly attending this fair, there may be a wait-list established.
Candidates must be registered with a Search Associates office if they wish to request an invitation to attend the Bangkok Job Fair.
Attendance at this fair is by invitation only. Candidates who are already registered with Search Associates should notify their Search sponsor of their interest in this fair to request an invitation.
NOTE: Checking "Interest in the Bangkok Fair" on the Search Associate online application does NOT constitute an invitation.
Because this is an early fair and attended by highly experienced international educators, this fair is quite competitive. Recruiters know that they have other fairs to attend at later dates, so they are very selective in this first round. PLEASE ASK your sponsoring associate to determine if this fair is a good match for you or if another fair would be a better "fit".
Candidates will be invited to attend the Bangkok-January Fair if we consider that they match the needs of the recruiters who will be at the fair and stand a real chance of receiving offers. About 40-50% of the fair attendees are expected to accept contracts resulting from the fair.
Some schools will be looking to employ candidates who have IB experience. Check the list of registered schools and do your homework beforehand. You may stand out more at a smaller fair, (as these fairs traditionally attract local teachers who do not have international experience).
Candidates who are new to Search and wish to attend the Bangkok Fair, look first at the region in which you live and register with the associate responsible for the region. If you are international (living outside of the US, UK, Canada, Australia/New Zealand), you may register with either Nick Kendell or Harry Deelman.
The FAIR SCHEDULE details pre-fair preparation and mandatory days to attend. Do not be late to the sign-ups.
