Leadership Recruitment Services for Schools

Leadership Search

Selecting the right school leader is the single most important decision an owner or governing body can make. The right school leader can improve academic results, raise enrolment, increase staff retention and make a vast difference to the bottom line.

Edvectus offers specialised services to schools seeking leaders that focus on finding the right fit. Every region, country and school has different requirements and every school leader has strengths and weaknesses, so finding the right fit is crucial to a successful relationship between leader, school and governing body.

We offer:

  • Ethical recruitment with honesty and integrity
  • A worldwide network primed to generate the best candidates
  • A dedicated leadership consultant to screen and long-list
  • Bespoke packages to suit a variety of need
