Hear from our candidates and recruiters in their own words!
I would recommend the fair to teachers who are looking for positions at established and accredited international schools. The CIS team was very helpful and guided me all the way through the application process. I would like to thank them for creating this well-organized learning opportunity and for welcoming and supporting me at the fair.
- Wilhem Laufs, Candidate, Hong Kong Career & Recruitment Fair 2017
Finding a new position after 11 years in my former school was not an easy task. I knew what my skills were but had not had to formally “sell” them for a long time. Setting up a CIS portfolio helped me to analyse and express in a clear manner what my philosophy was and what I could bring to a new school. The staff was always supportive and available, both via email or on the phone, and were personable in their interaction with me. Thank you to the CIS team!
-Fleur Serriere, leadership candidate 2017
Along every step of the way CIS had my best interests at heart. They provided personable, caring and invaluable support and advice from getting to, and attending the fair, to accepting a great job offer. Just simply terrific.

-Erika, educator candidate 2016
I have gained a valuable insight into the exciting career of international teaching. I understand the position would be challenging, life-changing and rewarding. I have an informed view and acknowledge the diverse range of schools and will embrace cultures and school life if I am offered a position in an international school.

Upon beginning the registration process I was very pleased with the way it was organized and the multiple steps required to complete the registration. It was a reassuring feeling knowing that all CIS candidates are thoroughly vetted before being allowed admittance to job vacancies and job fairs. One couldn’t help but feel that such a selective process would appeal to quality teachers and thus in turn attract top notch schools.
-Andy, attended London Career & Recruitment Fair 2017
I wanted to thank you again for all of your support and assistance at the job fair in London. I was really nervous about the fair and the interviews, but you made me feel confident and relaxed and I have no doubt that it is because of your support that I was able to get a job at the International School of Amsterdam! As per your advice, I kept in touch with the schools that I met with at the fair and I just signed my contract today. I couldn't be happier and I am so excited for August!
-Kathryn, attended London Career & Recruitment Fair 2016
CIS educators are high quality candidates who are very well prepared. Through the CIS database I have all of the information I need to review portfolios and evaluate candidates for my needs.
-Head of School, the International School in Genoa
We were looking for a new Head of School, that can bring the students at IST to the next level of Academic Excellence. CIS provided us with a significant number of high-caliber candidates to choose from. We learned a lot from the interactions with the CIS Leadership Search Professional Consultant and these high-caliber candidates as to their ideas of how to bring IST further forward. In the end, the involvement of the IST Community was key for the Board decision for the new Head of School.
