Recruiting the right person to lead your business strategy

“Our consultant had a friendly, collaborative style overlaying a formidable intellect, which was a brilliant combination. We worked very closely with them throughout and can’t think how they could improve.”

Schools and academies are having to seek increasingly bespoke solutions to be able to deliver an efficient, effective and sustainable business functionality which meets changing needs.

The scoping of role(s), subsequent selection and appointment of a new business leader is a huge responsibility. This key role can determine the financial stability and success of the institution, and therefore, the choice of business leader will have a long term and far reaching influence. The recruitment and selection process is therefore one that heads/principals will need to prepare for and plan carefully if they are to appoint the very best person for the role.

The Business Leadership Appointment Service will guide you through the recruitment process from start to finish.
Our highly experienced consultants will:
  • scope the role, taking into account future needs of the school and its requirements
  • advise on advertising and the application pack to generate the best possible field
  • help tailor the job description and person specification to meet the specific needs of the school
  • ensure sensible timescales for the recruitment process are followed
  • produce all relevant paperwork to support the selection
  • process and ensure this is fully compliant with relevant recruitment and equalities legislation and recommended best practice
  • provide professional experience and ability to judge candidates’ relative strengths and advise on their suitability for your leadership post
Should additional training or support for the successful candidate be required, we would be happy to discuss these options with you. We can offer a personalised Induction Programme, Mentoring Service or Professional Partner Programme.

All programmes involve working with one of our highly experienced consultants who will devise a tailor made support plan suitable for your needs.
