You will receive enticing advertising copy plus any additional documentation a candidate would need to make an informed decision regarding their application.

ESP manages all the candidate applications and pre-selection communication. We engage in candidate shortlisting and assessment to ensure you are presented with outstanding candidates for interview. 

No two organisations are the same and we personalise our service and delivery based on your client needs.

The ESP Search service gives you the commitment that a deep and extensive candidate search has taken place. This means we not only search the education sector but also complementary and contrasting sectors to ensure as wide a reach as possible. This enables us to identify the very best candidates. 

The team maintains an extensive database of potential candidates who have provided us with their details. This is updated regularly so we can access a professional talent pool that we have carefully created over the years, providing skilled potential applicants.

Post Placement Management

Once we place a candidate into an organisation, we maintain regular communication with them to ensure they are happy and thriving in their new role. We also maintain open communication with the client and this ensures long-term success and the longevity of the partnership. 

National and International Clients

We partner with educational institutions both in the UK and internationally and are committed to delivering exceptional leadership talent to meet specific client needs. We have experience placing candidates into key leadership positions within Europe, Asia, the Middle East and North Africa. 

Data and IT leadership roles play an important part in being at the forefront of technology implementation and strategy within leading educational institutions and we handle many senior appointments, often sitting within SLT teams. These can be career-defining positions that allow a candidate to make a significant impact in their role, grow their technical expertise and lead IT strategy development within international organisations.
