Education Leadership Recruitment launch

Education Leadership Launch

We are delighted to announce our Leadership Recruitment launch. This is a new bespoke service that focuses on sourcing and hiring school leaders. Although there is a widely recognised shortage of education leaders, we feel there are still many talented people within the sector. Since we have grown our leadership network over the last few years, we feel now is the time we can make a real difference. We have invested in creating our new team and feel excited to make a difference to school leader careers.

Statement from Christian Walshe, Associate Director, Operam Education Leadership Recruitment

Christian, who has worked in a variety of senior positions in education recruitment for the last decade, said the following.
“I have worked for ten years in education recruitment, working across all sectors and building partnerships with MAT and school leaders. I felt it  was apparent that a specialist partner was needed to assist with the challenging, non-educational task of recruiting leaders, Importantly, placing the right education leaders into schools, benefits pupils, staff, and the community. Joining Operam Education Group gave me the opportunity to create a bespoke innovative service.  I will now be able to support educational settings in appointing the right leaders in a more efficient way that offers true value for money. We are committed to customer service. I feel OEG and their creative thought leader approach matches my own beliefs and vision. Therefore, I was delighted to be offered the opportunity to lead Operam Education Leadership Recruitment. I am excited to begin placing outstanding candidates into key roles that will truly make a difference.”
