UAE recruitment fair to be held at a school for first time

For the first time, the Explore CRS UAE recruitment fair will be held at a school.

This year, the annual Explore CRS recruitment fair will be held at Raha International School in Abu Dhabi on Friday 6 and Saturday 7 December 2019. The event marks the first time that Explore CRS has partnered with a school to deliver the popular annual jobs fair.

Vanessa Cumbers, director at Explore CRS, explains the decision behind the change of approach: “We've usually hosted the fair at hotels in the UAE but this year we were keen to hold it in an educational environment. We’ve worked with Raha for many years and they have the space and facilities we need to make this event a success.

“We’re pleased to be able to work with one of our long-term clients and that candidates attending the fair will be able to visit such a successful and well-established school. We’re very much looking forward to the event in December.”

Kathryn Simms, vice principal at Raha, added: "We are very excited to be expanding on our partnership with Explore CRS this year by hosting their UAE fair. Our successful and long relationship with CRS has benefited our students by giving us access to the best teachers across the globe. We hope that this relationship will continue to flourish and help us to enrich the lives of our learners."

This is the sixth year that the recruitment fair has been held in the UAE. As in previous years, the fair will gather top schools in the Middle East region, China and southeast Asia who are looking for teachers.

Abdul Hafeez Khan attended a previous UAE fair as a candidate and said: “It was a great experience. The CRS team was very helpful and well organised. It was a great opportunity to meet different candidates and heads of schools.”

A second recruitment fair, held in Shanghai on Friday 10 to Sunday 12 January 2020, will bring together candidates and recruiters from the east and southeast Asia regions.
