"LSC responded quickly and efficiently to the brief we provided for a new Head. Through their rigorous selection and interview process, they identified an excellent long list of candidates. LSC supported us carefully through the short list interviews, leading to the recruitment of an outstanding new Head who met the requirements of our brief perfectly."
Will Foster-Kemp, Chairman of Governors, Vinehall School, East Sussex, UK
"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."
Joy Qiao, Founder and Chair of Governors, Wellington College China
"We have been very impressed with the support provided by LSC Education in our recent search for two Deputy Heads. LSC Education’s very strong understanding of and experience in recruiting in international schools was one of the reasons we chose their services. The process was very well managed from start to finish. Edward Clark’s engagement with the school ensured he had a clear understanding of the school’s needs and his support throughout the interview process, both for the candidates and the selection panel, helped ensure we were successful in our appointments."
Nicola Dudley, Director of Education, Malvern College International
"I wanted to send a personal note to say how impressed I am with LSC Education. Professional. Thorough. Supportive. I'd also like to say another huge thanks for matching me with my perfect role, team and school. I can't wait to start!"
Gillian Hammond, Founding Head of Senior School, Abu Dhabi
"LSC was chosen to conduct a search for a new Principal at our school because they listened to our requirements and guided us to refine these in light of their excellent and current knowledge of the market. They sourced a strong shortlist of candidates, and managed the selection process professionally and efficiently, communicating regularly and proactively with us.”
Anita Bird, HR Consultant, Octagon Human Resources
"As an experienced International School Head, it was enlightening to witness the LSC service from 'the other side', as a candidate applying for a position. Communication and responses to my questions were dealt with professionally and promptly throughout the process and the initial screening interview was, quite possibly, the most searching that I've ever experienced. I was fortunate enough to be selected for interview and the regular communication and attention to detail continued throughout. It was disappointing not to have been selected for the post, but I've left the process with a highly favourable and positive impression of Edward Clark and his team - to the extent where I will be delighted for him to act on my school's behalf in future Senior Leadership appointments"
"On behalf of the project team I would like to thank you for the excellent services provided by the LSC in the recruitment of the five school leaders. They are doing a very good job and hopefully will be able to make great changes to the allocated schools. It's really been a great pleasure working with you and really appreciate all your hard work and cooperation in making this project a success."
Ministry of Education, Brunei Darussalam
“We engaged LSC Education to help us with our Principal search, due to Edward Clark’s extensive experience in the independent schools sector, both in the UK and overseas.

I have every confidence that Edward will find us the best candidate. He gives honest advice and delivers what he says he will. He has experience and understands the various peculiarities of the market and of the client. I would recommend Edward to anyone searching for quality leaders.
