4 Points of Difference
- Specialist Service – Blackcat Education is a specialist recruitment consultancy. We only work on senior appointments and look to provide a focused, professional service for Boards of Trustees, uncomplicated by offering a range of additional consultancy services which can lead at times to conflicts of interest. We offer a clean, simple, dedicated and highly effective appointments service.
- Proactive Approach – Blackcat Education combines the best of both worlds. A combination of the search and selection techniques applied to handle the most senior executive appointments within a team that offers over 60 years experience in Education and Education Services within New Zealand, UK, Europe and Internationally. The result is a proactive approach that helps to appoint the strongest possible candidates from the widest choice available.
- Pool of Talent – Blackcat Education is developing a ‘Pool of Talent’ comprising existing and aspiring school principals. We are identifying and working closely with education professionals – in New Zealand and overseas – with the leadership qualities to succeed in schools today or helping them prepare for advancement into a principal role.
- Leadership – It’s a People Thing. Although we are engaged by Boards of Trustees to help them appoint the strongest candidate for a principal role, we do not differentiate between clients and candidates. We see only people and it is a real privilege for us to provide a service to ‘both’. We believe in the resilience, ingenuity and sheer determination of people to succeed despite all the odds. We love to encourage people to develop themselves, to lead & inspire others and to find better ways of doing things. In short, we are excited about helping people achieve their true potential and will be tireless in our approach to helping others succeed.
If you are looking to make a career move – or trying to identify an experienced & professional recruitment firm that will take the time to get to know you, your school and your particular requirements with care and sensitivity – then we hope you will contact us.
