Embedding specialist support to take ownership of site operations

The White Horse Federation required an interim Site Manager to take full responsibility for school operations quickly and autonomously.

 Priorities Supported:

  • Recruit interim support to cover this permanent vacancy which was critical to the school’s running

  • Retain a specialist and known supplier who would fulfil the requirement efficiently to ease departmental and recruitment pressure

  • A Site Manager with extensive knowledge and the confidence to immediately take accountability for the operations of the site

Experience Applied:

  • Having taken the time to understand the school and build our knowledge of their practices and culture, the client was confident we could deliver and work in partnership with them

  • As specialists in Education Estates and Facilities, we utilised our market knowledge and existing candidate relationships to contact forty interims which we shortlisted to two exceptional options

  • Our applicants underwent a thorough initial interview with our consultant to assess their ability to provide the stability required for the role

 Outcomes Delivered:

  • Both of our candidates were appointable, and the successful applicant was in post two weeks from the position going live with us

  • Provided after-care to both client and candidate over an eight-month period, enabling the school to focus on the recruitment of teaching vacancies to uphold their reputation as a high-quality educator

  • We maintained ongoing responsibility for the success of this position which included successfully replacing our initial candidate following the vacancy’s extension with an equally qualified individual to ensure continuity of service levels
