Biggest-ever Shanghai job fair welcomes record number of candidates

Explore CRS hosted its biggest-ever international recruitment fair on Saturday 8 December, attracting more than 300 teachers in Shanghai looking for new career opportunities.

 

Attendees to the fair were able to meet and have interviews with principals of the 28 international schools in attendance, including institutions such as YK Pao, Shanghai Singapore, International School Vietnam, Qatar Foundation, Nanwai King’s College and RDFZ King’s College Schools.

 

The three-day event began with a program of professional development workshops, delivered by international school leaders from China, Qatar and Vietnam. These sessions, which attracted record numbers of attendees, focused on topics such as leadership, policy development and active learning. 

Day two was the fair’s busiest day, with representatives from the schools meeting directly with interested candidates, before interviews began to take place in the afternoon and into day three.

It was an action-packed weekend with a high number of attendees receiving job offers on the third day. While exact numbers of job offers and acceptances have yet to be determined, they are expected to be high.











“We’re delighted that this year’s Shanghai recruitment fair attracted so many talented candidates looking for new international teaching opportunities,” said Vanessa Cumbers, head of recruitment at explore CRS.

“It is indicative of not only the ability of explore CRS to bring together the very best candidates and attending schools, but also to the huge number of international teaching opportunities available here in Asia.”

This is the seventh year that explore CRS has held a job fair in Shanghai, alongside a second fair held each year in Dubai in January.
