The Spencer Group has been successfully recruiting executive-level talent for more than 12 years. We operate across the maintained and non-maintained school sectors, at primary and secondary levels and in both mainstream and SEND settings.

We offer a solution to the growing challenge of recruiting school leaders, as a significant proportion of the existing talent pool reaches retirement age. The most recent statistics show that traditional methods of attracting and recruiting head teachers are failing to deliver a sufficient level of response, with re-advertisement rates for headships across the UK at an all-time high.

The Spencer Group’s proactive, tried-and-tested search process has enabled us to achieve an exceptional completion rate on assignments since 2001. Working both nationally and internationally, we have successfully helped clients recruit a range of senior-level posts including executive, consultant and founding head teachers, principals, executive directors of education and school improvement specialists.
