15th April 2021
We are really excited that our virtual iday’s are back, with the first for 2021 booked in for the 28th April. If you haven’t already registered with us, you’ll need to to take part. Here’s the lowdown:
The UK boosts a world-leading education system that offers fantastic career progression and opportunities for personal growth for teachers from all corners of the world. Since Engage started, our focus has been on hiring the best, most passionate teachers to work in UK schools. Our unique, fully virtual iday is just one of the ways that we work to connect schools looking to hire teachers with candidates both in the UK and further afield. We match schools and candidates using our experience and industry knowledge and interviews take place throughout the day via video.
In over ten years of running our virtual and in-person idays, we’ve always had a great success rate, with many initial interviews progressing to second interviews and on to permanent job offers. We are really confident in our unique process and we know that it works! Our event means that schools have a great chance of finding the ideal match for their school, whilst candidates have the opportunity to showcase their skills and passion directly to employers without the need for time consuming and expensive travelling.
On the day, you’ll know exactly who you are meeting and how to access the interview, your consultant will make sure of it. You can rest assured that the schools you are speaking to will be open to hiring and keen to discuss your ideas and experiences. Each interview lasts around 45 minutes but that can vary depending on the type of role. You’ll find the format very similar to a normal interview and an opportunity to showcase elements of your experience, discuss your own career development plans and if you are an international candidate, why you want to teach in the UK.
If you haven’t experienced an iday or another virtual interview before, we know it can be daunting. We’ve put together ten of our top tips for making a great impression during your iday interviews, but these tips are valuable to anyone about to embark on a virtual recruitment journey. If you have your own ideas about how to stand out, remotely, then pop us a tweet on twitter we’d love to hear your personal tips for virtual interview success!
