Executive Services

At anzuk executive, we partner with you to find exceptional educational leaders, and we know that it does not end there. We know that when one exceptional leader or educator is in school community or a classroom, children get a great educational experience.

Operating between Australia, the UK, NZ, Canada and the USA, we are excited that anzuk are supporting educators around the world and making a global impact.

We take the time to understand your specific needs through stakeholder focus groups and then apply a values-based, people-centered, and research-driven recruitment approach to ensure all candidates are evaluated on merit.

We also understand the confidentiality, sensitivity and care needed to ensure an exceptional experience is afforded to all.

Our difference

Our executive search process brings together talent, leadership, knowledge and networks to provide you with the right leaders. We work with the best existing and emerging talent, providing career mentoring and enhancing leadership capacity across the education sector.

A collaborative approach

Our active and collaborative approach, combined with our expertise in driving highly effective search processes, ensures you can be confident in engaging us to source and find alignment with key leadership talent. We understand the complexity of such an appointment and through working with you, will be able to source leaders who meet key stakeholder expectations who align with your culture.

Our networks

We have extensive and meaningful relationships across the education sector both in Australia and abroad. Being in regular communication with these educators enables us to advise and mentor them in the navigation of their career pathways. This active and passive talent represent the current and future leaders in education.

Education leaders framework

Our Education Leaders Framework, based on the key competencies of AITSL principal and leadership standards, is a unique tool designed to identify the multiple dimensions of a senior or executive level educator. This is utilised throughout the process to provide structure to sourcing, through to assessment, and appointment.
