Leadership Recruitment

Why leave such vital recruitment to chance when professional guidance is available?

Recruiting the Headteacher or Principal is a crucial responsibility for governing body, yet the demands of this vital process go well beyond the usual strategic input required of governors. That is where our Leadership Recruitment service comes in – using a consultative approach and drawing upon your knowledge of the school, we manage an efficient and effective recruitment campaign leaving you free to focus on making the key selection decisions.

The clarity you brought to the process and insights you gave, through your experience and testing, ensured we got an excellent response to the advert and followed a robust recruitment process. Dr Jane Padmore, Chair of Governors – Norbury Manor

This service is also useful for school leaders seeking to recruit to senior leadership team vacancies.
