“Ormiston Academies Trust retained Wild Search to work on a tight deadline on the appointment of Heads for three of our academies, two of which are in East Anglia. They identified a range of candidates, resulting in appointments to all three academies. All have performed well and the rigorous work undertaken by Edward and the team at Wild Search was critical to a smooth and successful outcome.”

"Wild Search did a superb job in identifying and engaging a leadership team for the newly formed multi academy trust which I lead. They managed almost 1000 enquiries which led to more than 100 applications and resulted in six appointments being made. This has been critical to the success of our start up and development as a national organisation."

"While we recognised that finding a senior level business development professional to work in the charitable sector was a challenging brief, the Wild Search team rose to said challenge and presented us with several interesting and engaged candidates, from whom we were able to choose an individual who we are confident will help us drive the organisation forward. We recommend Wild Search wholeheartedly."
Alan Woods, Chief Executive Officer, VTCT
"We were delighted with the personable and efficient service provided by Wild Search as we sought to recruit a Director of Development. We were provided with a broad and interesting range of highly-qualified, diverse and interesting candidates, from whom we were able to make a first-rate appointment. Throughout the process, Wild Search were in touch and on the case. It was a pleasure to work with them, and we would certainly do so again."
