April 21 - 23, 2017


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 also 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 Senior Associate are equally welcome to request an invitation to register for a place.

This event usually attracts at least 50 schools and between 200 and 300 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 January, February or March, but of course invitation requests are welcome at any time.

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 22 April and Sunday 23 April 2017 are the essential days to be present if at all possible.    Check in and collection of fair papers is best done on Friday 21 April between 3.30 pm and 5.30 pm.     Candidates who cannot check in with us on the Friday - this is usually the majority - are required to do so on Saturday 22 April between 7.30 am and 8.30 am.     
Departure after 6.00 pm on the Sunday (23 April) 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 7 April 2017.   
Absolute final deadline for candidate registration:    15 April 2017

The hotel’s online booking system is no longer operative, since we are now past the date (23 March) up to which the specially discounted rates were being offered.  

You therefore need to contact Konstantina Gida at the hotel, email konstantina.gida@hilton.com, telephone +44 20 7850 0502, explaining exactly what room reservations you require, and she will be happy to help.      

Also, if you would be interested in hiring a private meeting room for interviews – and you will see that this is an essential requirement if you choose to book a GWR Tower room (not recommended) – please again contact Konstantina.

Arrival and departure
Heads of schools and other recruiters are asked to check in at the Search Associates office in the hotel on Friday 21 April 2017, preferably between 9.00 am and 3.30 pm.      Arrival either by Thursday evening (20 April) or on Friday morning (21 April) is recommended - recruiters need the Friday for candidate file review and other preparations.
Departure is best planned for the morning or early afternoon of Monday 24 April 2017.

Recruiter registration for the fair
Any school that has not already received an invitation to register online for the fair should e-mail David Cope to request an invitation.
Registration no later than 7 April 2017 is greatly preferred - after that date recruiter places may well be limited.     The fair registration fee is payable within 15 days of receipt of the invoice.
