Being able to do the job, and being able to demonstrate your competence through the recruitment process are two different things.  You would not be alone in finding it challenging to do yourself justice and to sell yourself effectively.

We believe that effective preparation maximises your chances of securing the right position for you.   With our many years’ experience in recruiting to headship, and in preparing candidates for interview, we bring insight, knowledge and skill to support you.

More than that, we will work with your particular concerns and issues, and with calm effectiveness we will help you prepare and perform to your best abilities, with the confidence to be yourself.

The coaching I received from Eve powerfully unlocked something inside me that had been holding me back in interviews. In a couple of hours, Eve identified what was going wrong, what I needed to do to succeed and then trained me in some techniques to use during the interview. Success! The feedback from the panel said I was head and shoulders above the other candidates. I can’t thank her enough.

Meg and Eve have devised innovative training programmes which are highly effective in enabling women school leaders to realise their potential to apply for the most senior posts in schools and colleges. These programmes are motivational, grounded in the realities of headship and invaluable to participants as they seek to unlock their potential and build confidence to apply for headship.
