On-going globalisation, economic challenges and growth opportunities are sharpening the focus on one of the fastest-growing sectors – tertiary, post-graduate and professional education.

The university sector has long seen itself as a ‘global academy’ and is creating stronger links with private enterprise in need of academic input for the scientific and cultural initiatives shaping our world. Other specialist education providers are meeting global demand for language, scientific and professional training, with fast-growing regional hubs attracting ambitious future leaders.

Our clients include some of the world’s leading universities. These institutions are complex organisations that require top talent to meet the growing research and teaching needs of society. We recruit for roles such as Chair, Dean, President, Vice President and Treasurer as well as Heads of HR, Audit and Fundraising.
