HILTON LONDON PADDINGTON

Fair Organizer: David Cope

 

The London Spring job fair attracts international schools of all kinds from all over the world - including British, American and IB schools - so it is suitable for a wide range of teachers, in all subject fields and at all levels.

Candidates come from all over the world to attend the fair.     However, it is especially convenient for teachers based in the UK, Ireland and other parts of Europe who can reach London within reasonable travelling time.

The fair is organised by David Cope and is particularly appropriate for UK office candidates, but candidates registered with any other associate are equally welcome to request an invitation to register for a place.

This event usually attracts about 50 schools and at least 200 candidates, making it much the largest of the late-season job fairs.

Candidates wishing to attend the London-Spring fair should contact David Cope (or, if not registered with the UK office, their sponsoring associate) as early as possible to request an invitation.     Most candidates do this during October, November, December, January and February, but invitation requests are welcome at any time after 3 September 2017.

The London-Spring fair is held over a Saturday/Sunday weekend.    If at all possible, candidates need to be free to attend throughout both of these two very full days of meetings and interviews, and should make their travel and accommodation arrangements with this in mind.

Arrival and departure
Saturday 24 March and Sunday 25 March 2018 are the essential days to be present if at all possible.    Check in and collection of fair papers is most easily done on Friday 23 March between 3.30 pm and 5.30 pm, if possible.     Candidates who cannot check in with us on the Friday - this is usually the majority - are required to do so on Saturday 24 March between 7.30 am and 8.30 am.     
Departure after 6.00 pm on the Sunday (25 March) usually allows enough time for candidates who arrived for the start of the fair on Saturday morning.

Candidate registration for the fair
Candidates need to ask their associate well in advance of the fair for an invitation to register online for a candidate place.     Online registration should be done as early as possible, and preferably no later than 1 March 2018.   
Absolute final deadline for candidate registration:    15 March 2018

RECRUITERS

Recruiters should stay at the Hilton London Paddington (except perhaps for London area schools, who may prefer to book an interview room to use during the day and not stay overnight).

The hotel’s online booking system should be used for room reservations, at the specially discounted rates which are on offer only up to 22 February 2018, and can be accessed from this link:   http://eventsathilton.com/show/5953d00c0120971ee869c2f8

About any reservation problems, please contact Konstantina Gida at the hotel, email konstantina.gida@hilton.com, direct telephone +44 20 7850 0502.    The executive rooms and suites are the most suitable for interview purposes; however, some recruiters may prefer to book one of the hotel’s private meeting rooms for interviews (available on application to the hotel).    Please note that owing to the hotel’s security system it is not at all easy for candidates to have direct access to the new GWR Tower rooms.      Any recruiter wishing to stay in a GWR Tower room (not recommended at all) is therefore required to book a private meeting room in the hotel for interviews, and the availability of such rooms may be limited.    All reservations must be guaranteed by credit card.  

CANDIDATES

Candidates certainly do not need to stay at the Hilton.    Advice on alternative hotel accommodation in the Paddington area is available from David Cope.

For Hilton room reservations if required, the hotel’s online booking system should be used, and can be accessed from this link:
