Senior Leadership Recruitment Specialists
Senior Leadership Recruitment
As senior leadership recruitment specialists, the Academicis approach is one of close, consultative partnership with the Governing Bodies, Local Authorities, School Improvement Partners (SIPs), Church Dioceses and Independent School Boards.
For this reason, we place great emphasis on keeping the School and candidates informed throughout the recruitment process, to ensure momentum, continuity and complete transparency.
Recognising the often sensitive aspects of the work we do, each of our assignments is specifically tailored to the unique culture and character of the School.
We like to be involved as early as possible in the process, enabling us to become an extension of the existing School or Governor team.
The process we go through will be tailored to your specific needs, though is likely to include most of the following elements:
Benefits of Working with Senior Leadership Recruitment Specialists
As Senior Leadership Recruitment specialists we recognises the many and varied requirements of the modern School leadership role.
We Can Help
We Are Only as Good as Our Candidates
At Academicis we recognise the ever morphing role of Executive Heads, Headteachers and Principals.
As a result, traditional methods of Headteacher recruitment are no longer sufficient to attract the best candidates. Recruitment campaigns that follow the traditional advertising approach often yield poor response levels and low numbers of high calibre candidates. In some cases, a second, third or even fourth round of recruitment is needed, soaking up valuable time and budget that could be better used elsewhere.
