< Back To Fair List


January 12 - 14, 2024


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 2024 Fair. 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 300+ candidates and 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 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.




If you’d like to meet multiple schools and recruiters in the one place at the one time and possibly walk away with a job offer in hand, we’d love you to join us. Face to face interviews, networking and meeting people socially are great opportunities to make connections.. Learn about the schools and get a feel for the people who work there.


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 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.


When you register with Search Associates, an interview to a job fair is included in the registration fee. Please be aware that there is a US75 charge for each subsequent fair attendance. A full refund will be given if you cancel prior to the cut off date.


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.
