DUBAI
DEIRA INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL, FESTIVAL CITY, DUBAI

Fair Organizer: Bill Turner

This will be the first of two Dubai fairs run during this school year. It is organized by Bill Turner and Alison Turner, who have leadership experience in 5 schools across the region, covering British, IB and American curricula, and have been running Search's Middle East office for 3 years. This fair is particularly appropriate for candidates looking for a position in the Middle East, Africa or Asia. The majority of the schools recruiting at the fair come from those regions, though some schools come from Europe as well. This is an early fair so will be a great chance to meet leadership candidates, as well as other candidates who have already decided to seek new positions for next year. It also fits neatly into the UAE weekend so recruiters and candidates need not miss any school!

2019 DUBAI NOVEMBER JOB FAIR

Thank you so much for your interest in participating in our 2019 Dubai November job fair. We are really looking forward to seeing you!    

We are particularly excited about welcoming you to our first ever November fair in Festival City, alongside the famous Dubai Creek. We are grateful and delighted to be hosted by the fantastic Deira International School which will provide us all with plenty of space for the weekend. Festival City is near Dubai International Airport and has plenty of hotels, with lower priced options not far away in Deira.

This is to give you some brief general information about the event – more detailed guidance will be sent to you nearer the time.

As a brand new fair, we have no history to share! We expect to attract mostly schools from the Middle East, but also from Asia and Africa, who want an early look at the candidates who have made their decision to move on for next year and are likely to be snapped up by strong schools early in the recruitment season. We anticipate that schools will also be looking for leadership candidates who tend to be appointed in the earlier stages of the recruitment season.

As the fair approaches, please be sure to log in regularly to check which schools have booked to attend the fair and what vacancies if any they may have posted.

Equally, if your plans change and you decide you won’t be attending the fair after all, please be sure to let us know as soon as you can, and/or log in and cancel your place.

If you have friends or colleagues who are not currently registered with us and who might be interested in attending the Dubai fair, please encourage them to contact us as soon as possible about registering.  We usually have a considerable number of teachers who contact us at the last minute, in the week of the fair, saying they would like to attend – but of course at that very late stage, because the registration process takes a little time, there’s no way we can accept them and they end up disappointed.  Early registration, between June and October, can make all the difference to a candidate’s prospects.

Finally, please don’t rely exclusively on the fair as a source of potential job opportunities. You need also to be making regular, proactive use of our database to search for suitable vacancies and then apply for those that attract you.  Bear in mind that over half our successful candidates get their jobs not by attending any of our fairs but simply through effective use of our database being made by candidates and schools.


If you have any specific concerns or questions about the fair in the coming months please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Thank you!

Bill Turner

DUBAI JOB FAIR  22 to 23 NOVEMBER 2019

Hosted at: Deira International School, Dubai Festival City, PO Box 79043, UAE.   

NB Please do not phone the school for Fair-related questions. Email us (bturner@searchassociates.com) or, if really urgent, call or message us (+971 56 793 1108).

Arrival and departure

Friday 22 Nov and Saturday 23 Nov 2019 are the essential days to be present at the Fair.

If you live in the UAE you can simply drive to the school where there is plenty of parking.

If you are staying at The Holiday Inn Festival City there is a free shuttle bus service to the school leaving the hotel at 6.45am on Friday, and back again later in the day. On Saturday the shuttle bus will leave the Holiday Inn Festival City at 7.30am.

If you come by taxi please make sure you tell the driver: Deira International School in FESTIVAL CITY. (This is because Deira is the name of a different district of the city, which can be confusing!)

Candidate registration is at Deira International School between 7 - 8 am on Friday 22 November.   

Special arrangements can be made to cater for the needs of any candidates who, because of inescapable professional commitments, have to arrive late at the fair or leave early.

Candidates usually complete their interviews at some point on Saturday. Make sure you leave plenty of time on Saturday to complete all related business. The Fair closes at 6pm on Saturday. 



Candidate invitations for our 2019 Dubai November Job Fair

Candidates should ask their associate well in advance of the fair for an invitation to register.  Online registration should be done as early as possible, ideally between September and early November 2019.

The deadline for candidate registration is Sunday 17 November 2019.

NB Please do not phone the school for Fair-related questions. Email us (bturner@searchassociates.com) or, if really urgent, call or message us (+971 56 793 1108).

Thank you so much for your interest in participating in our 2019 Dubai November job fair. We are really looking forward to seeing you!    

Brand new fair!

We are particularly excited about welcoming you to our brand new fair - placed for the first time in November - in Festival City, alongside the famous Dubai Creek. We are grateful and delighted to be hosted by the fantastic Deira International School which will provide us all with plenty of space for the Fair. Festival City is near Dubai International Airport and has plenty of hotels, with lower priced options not far away in Deira. The Welcome Reception (for recruiters arriving on Thursday) and post-fair Recruiter Thank you Dinner will take place in the Intercontinental Hotel Festival City which is 5 minutes drive from DIS.

One fee - two fairs

For schools attending the November Fair, we will not charge a second registration fee for our new April 2020 fair. (This assumes the same number of recruiters attending.)


Arrival and departure

Heads of schools and other school representatives are asked to register in the Candidate Lounge at Deira International School on Friday 22 November 2019 between 8 - 8.40am.       

 
Fair registration

Any school that has not already received an invitation to register online for the fair should email Bill Turner to request an invitation.  Early registration is greatly preferred, but of course we are entirely understanding of the need to be responsive to your specific recruitment needs, which we know sometimes results in a late registration. We will always do our best to accommodate your needs.  The fair registration fee is payable within 15 days of a school's online registration for the fair.
