Testimonials

Effective search

James Weatherill, Non-executive Director
Langley Park Learning Trust

"I wish private sector search firms were this effective! Sarah (Regional Adviser) took the time and probed intelligently to understand what really motivated me about joining a trust, as well as how I could add value through my skills. We zeroed in on a trust that fitted my values and skillset surprisingly fast, and it was an excellent fit from the outset. I'd thoroughly recommend you apply, the process was an absolute pleasure."
