Forum Recruitment

Children and young people’s successful learning and development depends – above anything else – on the quality of school leaders and teachers. These are challenging times for recruitment (and retention) as trusts and schools depend on their ability to attract and recruit the best leadership candidates.

Forum Education offers comprehensive support for academy trusts and schools looking to recruit to executive and senior leadership roles. Our services are based on a deep understanding of both effective recruitment and leadership in the education sector, as well as the ability to draw upon our extensive networks of senior education sector leaders. Our team includes expert and experienced HR experts and education sector advisers.
