Education Recruitment

Berwick Partners’ Education Practice serves this vast sector, providing education recruitment services to help secure senior management and leaders. Regardless of individual academic attainment, we all have direct experience of the education system and often hold strong opinions concerning the quality and outcomes it provides. Often seen as the panacea to all of society’s problems, education plays a key role in delivering both economic prosperity and social cohesion to our society. It is also one of the areas in which Britain is genuinely world leading and is therefore commercially vital as an invisible export.

Berwick Partners’ Education Practice is one of the leading recruiters in this critical field; our education headhunters have an exceptional understanding of the constantly changing landscape of the education sector. We’re able to identify and attract senior and executive people with a broad base of skills and experiences, often developed in other sectors, who can empathise with the values of an organisation, yet still innovate and adapt.

Our expertise lies in our understanding of the key issues impacting on the different spaces in which we operate, identifying the best search geography to attract the best candidates. By cutting across the public and commercial world we can deliver truly global talent.

  • Universities Internationally
