We are thrilled by the range of organisations that have chosen to work with us since the Practice’s inception in 2019.
They span the independent and state sectors, and between them educate children from the ages of 3 to 18.
We know that every search is different and place real value on responding to our clients’ particular needs, with the ability to adapt our processes accordingly.
We also care deeply about getting to know each and every organisation we work for in a way that allows us to bring to life how and why their opportunity is different. We are committed to working in a way which is open, responsive and collaborative.
Our core Schools team has been created in recognition of how schools’ processes can often require a different approach. The majority of our team have, between them, worked in or around schools for decades.
We seek to work in a way that recognises the importance of our relationships with those in the sector and which seeks to be supportive to both candidates and clients.
