Gabbitas have been specialising in recruitment within the independent education sector since 1873. We have an unrivalled expertise internationally – recruiting senior managers and teaching staff for international schools worldwide. Our international recruitment business benefits from a team of highly experienced consultants who understand the characteristics of the particular countries in which assignments are undertaken most particularly in South America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Far East.
A high percentage of our work is with international schools that teach the British curriculum and other educational establishments that wish to attract high quality, UK trained, English speaking teachers. We have sourced new Principals for leading international Schools in Brazil, Argentina and Chile, as well as Vietnam, China, UAE, Pakistan, Egypt, Switzerland, Nigeria and Azerbaijan . We have also formed close relationships with international organisations such as FOBISSEA (Federation of British Independent Schools in South East Asia and East Asia), LAHC (Latin America Heads Conference), BSME (British Schools in the Middle East) and COBIS (Council of British International Schools), and we are regular attendees at these conferences. Our approach is flexible, ranging from advertising, selection and search to utilising our network of candidates built up over the years.
We ensure that applicants have a full understanding of the cultural differences of the geographical location of the schools. We aim to give them a thorough insight into the way of life of their possible new environment to ensure that they have the adaptability and strength of character to cope with the change in their lifestyle.
