North West Local Authority  – Assistant Director Learning & Attainment


“We had tried on 2 prior occasions to recruit a Head of our Special School, but 2 advertisements in the TES had failed to produce a positive field. Education Futures provided a full headhunt for the post, identifying an all-new field of strong candidates, from which we appointed. It was less than 2 months from the initial contact to appointment; Education Futures were both highly communicative and professional throughout and worked tirelessly to generate good applicants for us. I would not hesitate to use their services again, and have recommended them to both colleagues and contacts.”

Helen Huntley, Executive Head, Millside School


“When we needed an Associate Head of School to cover a 6 month period in a school in OFSTED category Education Futures were able to offer us a range of candidates one of whom we appointed. His work in the school has helped move the school forward so that HMI in two monitoring visits have judged the progress to be satisfactory and in the second visit commented that “In the meantime the school has been well led and moved forward under the leadership of the temporary headteacher…” We have been very happy with the support we were able to put in place through our contact with Education Futures.”

“Permanent Futures were able to understand our requirements and found us the right person for the job, reducing our workload by only sending us CVs of those who were clearly suitable”

Diana Choulerton, Principal Adviser 14-19 School Improvement Service, London Borough of Ealing


“Due to the sudden illness of the previous Interim Headteacher the Local Authority was looking to make a further interim appointment at the earliest opportunity. The School Improvement Adviser allocated to the school was actively involved in seeking someone who would be suitable to undertake the work initially on a temporary appointment basis. There was a need to secure the capacity of the senior leadership at the school and ensure continuity of leadership.

The experience of the Local Authority in undertaking the recruitment process in collaboration with Education Futures was an extremely positive one. Education Futures supported the recruitment process which was efficiently organised and very well managed. Consequently, applications were received, interviews held and an appointment made within a relatively short period of time.

The person appointed has proved to be highly effective in ensuring the stability of the school and moving the school forward at a highly challenging time. The Local Authority appreciates the speedy response and action by Education Futures in assisting the LA in securing someone to take up the Interim Headteacher post at short notice. Education Futures provided someone of the highest calibre and professional standards at very short notice and with the greatest level of efficiency.”

School Improvement Lead – Yorkshire Council


“I had not used a recruitment service before and therefore approached the process with some uncertainty. However, throughout I was struck by the highly professional work of the company. Education Futures went to great lengths to ensure that they fully understood both our context and our needs for both positions. The detailed weekly update meant that both I and Governors were fully up to date with progress. The rigour of the search meant that we had two highly credible candidates for a position that I had anticipated would take months to fill. We are absolutely delighted with the calibre of candidate appointed as a result of the search. I am happy to unreservedly recommend Education Futures.”
