Changing the why we work

Leadership in education is our future.

The education sector is at the forefront in shaping our future world. Leaders working across education and research must evolve with the demand for professional skills, learning structures and disruptive new technologies. The increasing need to meet high expectations for accountability by funding and accreditation bodies, to deal with global competition for teaching talent and student numbers and to partner with the business sector requires strong, values-based leadership.

“From the first time I engaged with Fisher Leadership, I immediately felt the authenticity and genuine care. Throughout the recruitment process, there was a high level of professionalism and open communication. Ensuring ‘best fit’ for both myself and the client was the core focus. As both a candidate and recruitment client, I truly commend the level of advice and guidance provided throughout the various processes. Dealing with Fisher Leadership has always felt like a relationship rather than transactional interactions. I highly recommend the team to anyone who wants to experience my insights first-hand.”
