What BOTs and schools say about working with us
Thank you for your time and effort relating to our recent recruitment process for our replacement principal. When our long term and amazing principal resigned at the end of term 3, the board were faced with a dual challenge, finding a replacement that fitted the board and community criteria for the role in a tight time frame. EP offered us the service that we needed, early engagement to firm up our application pack and managing the application process. EP have a structured approach and this means that the applicants are required to all provide information in a similar way, which made it easier to differentiate between them. Stuart provided guidance on shortlisting assessment and interview questions and strategies. Having an independent party to the process was immensely helpful. Stuart completed additional reference conversations on behalf of the board without bias and supported us through necessary board discussions. I would recommend EP to boards for recruitment processes.
Thanks for all your work Stu. I found you excellent to work with. A great job, for which we are very grateful.
Stu’s knowledge of the education scene allowed us the luxury of concentrating on selecting the best fit candidate rather than focusing on process detail. Would we use Education Personnel again? Absolutely.
I am glad that we used a recruitment company and Education Personnel was an excellent choice for us. Excellent communication all the way and the process was very thorough. We are very pleased with our choice.
We recently (2020) engaged the services of ep.education to help us find and appoint a new Principal for our rural school. We found them to be professional, organised, and helped guide us through the process. They have a sound understanding of employment requirements and what is required to make this process a success. We would have no issues recommending ep.education to other schools and would happily utilise their services again. We are very happy with the result we have achieved.
