Education reform needs more talent. It requires a larger pipeline and team of leaders with the skills and ambition to implement steady growth plans and pursue bold and unapologetic quality goals. Bellwether Education Partners is focused on identifying and increasing such entrepreneurial, hybrid talent for this critical work.
Bellwether supports clients through a variety of services related to talent acquisition. Our team offers advice, perspective, and solutions based on many years in the executive recruiting business and a deep understanding of the challenges unique to organizations in K-12 education.
For our traditional “C-level” executive searches, we begin by gaining an in-depth understanding of the client mission, history, culture, challenges, opportunities and position. Armed with this perspective, we can manage all or part of the hiring process – from writing the job specification to supporting the development of the offer to the successful candidate.
Yet Bellwether does more than traditional executive searches. We also provide customized unbundled services to clients whose talent acquisition needs are not just at the executive level or whose preference is to manage their own hiring process with limited assistance or learn how to conduct their own searches. Partnering opportunities include, but are not limited to, meeting with our clients’ leadership team before a search is launched and advising them how to draft a position description, craft a search strategy, seek out and find high-quality candidates, develop the appropriate interview process, refine interviewing skills, and effectively check references.
