Employing over 500,000 teachers alone, and with an expenditure of over £90 billion, education is a vital component of the British economy. But it's vital for so many other reasons.

Education is the foundation of society - ensuring individuals can thrive in both an economic and social setting, and setting the benchmark for future generations of innovation, and leadership. It is critical to have the right leadership within the education environment, even more so given the increased challenges facing the sector including financial constraints, continual reform, resource pressures and increased private sector competition.

We’re also really proud to have been awarded the position of top ranked contractor across 4 categories on the highly competitive APUC (Advanced Procurement for Universities and Colleges) Framework for Executive and Senior Specialist Search and Associated Recruitment Services across the UK.

We firmly believe we can provide the right skills set to enable your organisation to provide market leading education to your customers. Previous roles we have recruited for include:

  • Vice Chancellor
  • Dean of Medicine
  • Head Teacher
  • Head of Faculty
