Education Leadership Recruitment launched

We are delighted to announce our Operam Education Leadership Recruitment launch, which is a new bespoke service offering from the Operam Education Group, that focuses on sourcing and hiring inspirational leaders for their current and future partner clients. Although there is a widely recognised shortage of education leaders, there are still many incredibly talented individuals within the sector, and because Operam Education Group have grown their leadership network over the last few years, they feel now is the time that they can make a real difference to all stakeholders. Operam Education Group has invested in creating this new brand and team, as they feel it’s an exciting time for new leaders to step up to truly make a difference.

Eddie Austin, CEO, Operam Education Group, announced that Christian Walshe was appointed to lead the new national and international brand, stating:
“Christian joins us with a considerable amount of education recruitment experience and at a time when we are continuing to invest in our Group-wide service offering. Clients and candidates will significantly benefit from Christian’s approach and knowledge, which will ensure the right person is able to be placed into the right role, ultimately impacting on the positive learning experience for pupils.”

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