Bringing Great People Together

Schools are more than bricks and mortar; they are about people, relationships and leadership. That is why at Satis Education our mission is simple – we bring great people together. By helping individuals find organisations and colleagues who will inspire and develop them, we can collectively contribute to a sector that we are passionate to support.

Leadership Recruitment for Schools and Trusts

Satis Education is an education sector-leading executive recruitment organisation, providing expert support to trusts on the recruitment of CEOs; Executive and Operational leaders; Principals and Headteachers; and other senior leaders.

We have recruited many dozens of senior executive leaders to academy trusts and schools nationwide; developing longstanding partnerships with trustees, governors and CEOs who trust us to deliver high quality leadership recruitment when they need it.

Bringing Great
People Together

“It was an easy decision to appoint Satis and they did not fail in their commitment to help us find our next CEO. Helen and the team worked with us extensively to understand AAT but also helped to define what we were looking for in our new appointment. The engaging and collaborative approach ensured that we navigated the various decision points throughout the recruitment process together, building a trusting relationship from day one. The individual service that Satis provide ensured that we were connected throughout, building a trusting relationship which has continued long after the recruitment process!”

“We have returned to Satis for a second time to fulfill our recruitment needs of a new Principal. Undertaking this important recruitment process with Laura has again been extremely successful. From the careful management of interested applicants to the initial information gathering to enable shortlisting all the way through to involvement in the interview process. Laura is able to bring her wealth of experience to the table to enable the panel members to reflect upon and consider their thoughts and observations of the candidates. This allows the panel to fully focus on the candidates and the decision. I would highly recommend.”

Satis Education helped us to find an outstanding academy improvement partner to add strength and capacity to our team. They were able to move quickly, communicate well, and work to our specific requirements. I am delighted to report that the impact is already being seen on the ground.”
