In just 48-hours we placed an experienced SEN service manager with an authority, which had struggled to find a suitable candidate.
A South London authority was struggling to recruit a permanent SEN service manager. They urgently required a replacement for the recumbent member of staff.
We resolved to identify a current or recent SEN service manager, who could start within weeks to guide the team through re-structuring and provide stability until a permanent appointment was made. We immediately put a small team on target to call SEN service manager contacts in and around London.
Within 48-hours we’d identified someone, who was due to take early retirement and was not considering consultancy roles. After an in-depth discussion, the candidate was keen to take up the role. We introduced the candidate and client and a successful placement began. The client was very impressed with our ability to source such a high calibre candidate at short notice. This person is currently working with the substantive appointment candidate to ensure a seamless transition.
