Schools have become increasingly complex institutions with multiple demands, priorities and opportunities.
Today’s school leaders need a diverse range of skills and experience to navigate this complexity and provide the leadership necessary for their students and staff to thrive.
Odgers Berndtson’s Global Schools Practice has a strong track record of identifying, attracting and recruiting exceptional, diverse and sometimes unexpected candidates to lead independent, international and state-funded schools across the world. Our executive search specialists work at the most senior levels of those institutions, drawing on the reach and resources of our global network to find the best talent available.
Schools are set to follow higher education and embark on a path towards greater consolidation and professionalization. With the growth of the schools sector, from 6.4 million students in 2007 to 9 million in 2013, the challenge for leaders in education is to maintain quality.
Odgers Berndtson supports these groups through the introduction of executives who have the international experience and political skills to incorporate global best practices and increase sustainability.
