Interim recruitment

Hays Leadership manages a database of experienced school leaders who have track records in school improvement  - and who are available at short notice for temporary positions. Recruiting and maintaining regular contact with high quality candidates allows us to provide a quick, informed response to what are often emergency situations.

When you need an interim candidate, our thorough process ensures that we get the right person for the post:

  • We work with the LA and governors to understand the context of the school and the vacancy
  • We then profile the qualities of the person who will provide the greatest impact
  • We search for appropriate candidates and provide a shortlist within an agreed timescale
  • All of our candidates are vetted in accordance with DfE  Safeguarding Children and Safer Recruitment in Education guidelines and references are available

We recognise that these are often sensitive situations and we operate with absolute discretion at all times.
