Bangkok

January 6 - 8, 2023

BANGKOK
THAILAND

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.

 

Registrations are now open for schools and candidates.

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 one of the most popular fairs, the Bangkok Fair favours strong teaching couples and singles without dependants. The numbers in attendance are expected to be about 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.

 

RECRUITERS

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

Candidates must be registered with a Search Associates office if they wish to request an invitation to attend the Bangkok 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 a popular 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 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. Be on time to the sign-ups as that's when the majority of interviews will be scheduled.

How to get to the hotel

Suvarnabhumi (Sah-var-nah-boom) International Airport handles international flights. 

 

IF ARRIVING FROM WITHIN THAILAND, YOUR FLIGHT MAY USE DON MUANG AIRPORT. 

HTTP://WWW.DONMUANGAIRPORTONLINE.COM/TRANSPORTATION

Change money at the airport bank stalls; be sure to get a few Baht 20 and Baht 50 bills. 

METERED TAXI

The public taxi stand is located on Level 1 (ground level) near entrances 3, 4, 7 and 8. There is a taxi counter with personnel to ensure the driver understands your destination. Have the hotel and its address written on a piece of paper for ease of understanding. It is best to get a metered taxi to your hotel. You will be asked to pay the toll charges on top of the taxi fare, as well as a 50 baht fee to the driver (only applicable to taxis from the airports). Tipping is not expected, but appreciated. 

If you only have 1000 baht notes, it is suggested that you use one to pay the toll.  That way, you will get change in smaller notes.

Estimated taxi fare: 600 THB (one way)

Tell the taxi:  Marriott Marquis hotel, Sukhumvit Soi 22.

AIRPORT BUS

5:00 a.m. to midnight. http://www.bangkokairportonline.com/node/55 

AIRPORT TRANSFER

The Marriott Hotel is located just 40 kilometers from the Suvarnabhumi Airport.

Alternate transportation: Bangkok Marriott Marquis Limo Service; fee: 2500 THB (one way); reservation required

CITY TRANSPORTATION

Bangkok traffic can be challenging. Be sure to add extra time if you are scheduled to travel between 7am - 9 am and from 4 pm onwards. Friday and Saturday nights are particularly busy.

METERED TAXIS

Metered taxi is an easy way to get around Bangkok, though traffic jams are legendary. The hotel doormen will assist making sure the driver understands your destination and uses his meter.

RAPID TRANSIT

SkyTrain, (BTS) is half of Bangkok's rapid transit system. The nearest SkyTrain stop is at Phrom Phong BTS Station (although the Asok BTS station is not that much further in the other direction if walking along the street - Soi 22 is about half way between the 2 stations).

You can buy single trip tickets for the BTS using the machines at the station (having a supply of coins is recommended for this).  Alternately, you could purchase a Rabbit Card (for 100 baht) and then put some ‘credit’ on it, and use the turnstiles at any of the stations (tap on - tap off). This is often quicker as the queues at the ticket machines can be long at times.

There is also a subway (MRT). Get a BTS/MRT map from the hotel concierge. The nearest MRT stop is at Sukhumvit Station - see below (right next to the Asok BTS station). 

Location

The close proximity to BTS Sky train Station Phrom Phong, as well as the EM District lifestyle malls, enable easy access to some of the city’s most talked about hotspots. Only 400 meters or approximate 5 minutes walk from BTS to hotel via Park. Please note that the gate is now open every day from 06.00-20.00 hrs.

SUKHUMVIT

The longest road in Thailand, both it and its many adjoining 'sois' (sub-streets) are poor on traditional tourist attractions but rich in of-the-minute shopping, eating and nightlife. The many fashionable restaurants, bars, air-conditioned malls, luxury hotels and hip clubs give the area a distinctly modern, cosmopolitan flavour. And little, stress-busting pockets of calm can be found in the sweet cafes, atmospheric restaurants and lush day spas that hide down many of its sois. Making exploring its staggering length incredibly easy is the Skytrain (BTS) that runs through most of its downtown stretch.
