Dubai Fair

The Dubai Fair is organized by Bill Turner and Alison Turner, who have recent leadership experience in 5 schools across the region, covering British, IB and American curricula. The Dubai fair is particularly appropriate for candidates looking for a position in the Middle East or Asia. The majority of the schools recruiting at the fair come from those regions, though a good number of schools from Europe and Africa usually come as well. This increasingly popular fair now attracts over 60 schools and over 300 candidates each year.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE FAIR IS NOT A PUBLIC EVENT. IT IS STRICTLY BY INVITATION ONLY. YOU CAN ONLY ATTEND IF YOU HAVE BEEN INVITED, AND HAD YOUR PLACE CONFIRMED, BY SEARCH ASSOCIATES.

International schools of all kinds - including British, American and IB schools - attend our Dubai job fair, so it is suitable for a wide range of teachers, in all subject fields and at all levels. The fair is especially convenient for candidates already working in Europe, the Middle East, Africa or Asia who can reach Dubai within reasonable flying time. 

The fair is organised by Bill and Alison Turner and is particularly appropriate for their candidates, but candidates registered with any other associate are equally welcome to request an invitation to register for a place.

Candidates wishing to attend the Dubai fair should contact Bill Turner (or, if not registered with him, their sponsoring associate) as early as possible to request an invitation. It is best to do this between September and December — and at the latest by the end of January.

The Dubai fair is always held over a Friday / Saturday weekend. If at all possible, candidates need to be free to attend on both of these two very full days of meetings and interviews, and should make their travel and accommodation arrangements with that in mind. However, special arrangements will be made to ensure that any candidates who, because of professional commitments, have to arrive late or leave early are not in any way disadvantaged.

Candidates who may not be able to attend both days of the fair should inform the fair organiser, Bill Turner, as early as possible about their arrangements.
