Online recruitment event for secondary and special schools.

Virtual Recruitment and Networking Event

Tuesday 15th February 2022

4pm to 7pm

This online recruitment and networking event is open to state-funded secondary and special schools who are partners with OTSA or the University of Oxford Department of Education.

The event will be an opportunity for schools and trainee teachers to meet to discuss current and future possible employment opportunities.

You do not need to know your recruitment needs at the time of the event – this is an opportunity for schools to ‘sell’ themselves to current trainees who, having met you and heard about your school, might then make an application in the future.

Of course, if you do have vacancies then it is a great opportunity to meet potential applicants and we know plenty of schools have gone on to employ people they met at our previous recruitment fairs.

This event is online, therefore trainee teachers will be able to attend from across the UK but in particular all OTSA Associate Teachers and Oxford Interns will be invited. You will be able to meet potential employees one to one, find out more about them, tell them about why your school is a great place to work and collect their contact information.

How Will it Work?

You will host a meeting on Zoom, Teams or Google Meet. You may wish to use breakout rooms, or multiple accounts – that is up to you.

Just like a face-to-face recruitment fair you will need at least one person, but ideally a small team of people, on your virtual stand to meet with potential applicants. Most schools have at least one person from their leadership team involved.

Before the event you should ensure your school profile on the OTSA Job Board and the employment/application section on your school website are updated. This should include details of any subject areas you are particularly keen to recruit in, as well as information about why your school is a great place to work. We will make this information available to potential applicants ahead of the event. They will use this information to decide which schools they wish to visit.

During the event, potential applicants will arrive at your virtual stand (Zoom, Teams or Google Meeting). We suggest that once you have admitted them, and and introductions have been made, you re-direct them to a separate virtual meeting room for a 1:1 conversation with a member of your team. This might be a breakout room, or a separate virtual meeting room.

More detailed guidance on how to manage the event will be provided following registration.
