Senior Executive Management Recruitment

College Principal in meeting

We understand that successful recruitment depends on so much more than appropriate qualifications, skills, experience and competencies. It is very much about making the right connection between just one of many capable candidates and your Governing Body in order to find the right person to drive forward the longer-term strategic aims and objectives of the College.

Ultimately, we do not underestimate how important the appointment of a senior leader is to our clients. With this in mind, we always strive to put quality ahead of anything else; quality service, quality processes and, most importantly, quality candidates. We have successfully appointed hundreds of senior leaders in the sector from Principals through to Directors and Heads of Department. 

We have built our reputation based upon our in-depth knowledge and understanding of the marketplace and our ability to find the perfect candidate to meet each client’s specific requirements.

If you need someone to manage the whole recruitment process or simply put you in touch with the perfect candidate the Protocol Senior Executive and Management Team will be able to support you.

We can help you recruit for the following types of positions:

  • Principal
  • Assistant 
  • Vice Principal
  • Deputy Principal
  • Chief Executive
  • Chief Operating Officer
  • Director
  • Chair
  • Head of Department
  • Senior Manager
  • Manager

“Protocol were successful in their tender for Askham Bryan College’s recent search for an Executive Director for Students, Quality & Standards, a pivotal strategic role within the institution’s executive team.  It was both my and the College’s first experience of working with Protocol and we were highly impressed by the professionalism and expertise demonstrated by the Protocol team throughout the process. All aspects of the search project were undertaken with diligence and acute attention to detail and ultimately we had the luxury of being able to secure an exceptional appointment from within a large and highly-credible cohort of quality candidates. Protocol provided a value-for-money service of the highest quality and we would undoubtedly welcome interest from the company in respect of any future executive-level search needs.”
