Exhibitors will include UK teacher specialists, Hourglass Education, New Zealand’s Education Personnel, and international recruiters World Teachers and SeekTeachers.

If you are a recent graduate or a school leaver, highly skilled, unemployed, returning to the workforce or looking for your next challenge, there’ll be something for you,” says organiser Kevin Branigan of Careers Unlimited.
In addition to employers recruiting at the event, there will be a series of talks from industry insiders on the Expo’s Agenda Stage, with all seminars and talks being sponsored by the National Ambulance Service.
