Specialists in Education and Experts in Recruitment
LSC Education is a consultancy run by people who not only have a thorough understanding of the Education sector, through their own personal experience in school governance and leadership, but who are also recognised nationally as award-winning recruiters and have an international reputation as search specialists.
The process of finding, attracting and appointing world-class leaders is time-consuming and can be challenging. Yet, securing the right candidate for a school or education organisation can be transformational. Our experience and track record demonstrates that LSC Education consultants can help to attract, assess and secure the right leaders for each position.
Having 'lived and breathed' school life, we understand the complexities and intricacies of school communities. We have also worked for, and with, a range of corporate organisations and understand different cultures and work environments. We recognise that changes in leadership can be both an exciting and unsettling time for stakeholders. Through our experience, we know how to work alongside school communities; we appreciate the constraints, the time pressures and sensitivities that exist.
Perhaps most importantly, we have a very real sense of how crucial it is to make the right appointment and therefore we spend time listening to the needs of the stakeholders and advising where required. We put no restraints on the time or energy needed for the search process - it continues until the right person is found.
Our Values - Integrity, Excellence and Care
At LSC Education we take great pride in our work, forever mindful of the huge impact appointing the right leader will have on each pupil in their care, every staff member they lead and community they serve. To this end we work with three key values at the heart of our business and our practice; INTREGITY, EXCELLENCE and CARE. These are also values we look for in our leaders across the globe.
"It’s been a pleasure working with LSC and we have successfully recruited several senior leaders through them. Edward gave us a lot of his time during each search, ensuring a smooth and continuous process for all involved. The professional services provided by his team made a usually demanding process much easier for us. These range from the drafting and designing of the candidate information pack, to placing the ads through multiple channels, to the pre-screening of the candidates by an education professional and the reference checks and follow through. The biggest value of LSC is by far their extensive international network. Given the exponential growth of the international education market and the shortage of qualified senior leaders, the range and quality of candidates we got from LSC in each search was simply outstanding. This was the single most important factor in ensuring a successful search."
