While most higher education recruiting firms are concerned solely with finding candidates who possess the appropriate experience and the required credentials, International Search Consultants uses its array of resources to determine which of the eminently qualified leaders we identify will provide the best match for your institution’s mission, strengths, and mandates. We believe that by carefully considering the needs and motivations of both, the school and the candidate, we not only gain insight into how best to fill the current opening, but also work to facilitate executives’ and managers’ successful transition into positions where they can lead the institution into a new era of service to students, faculty, staff, donors, and the community.

Please keep in mind that in addition to Higher Education teams that focus exclusively on Campus President, Program Chair and Director of Library Services positions to name a few, we also have recruiters focusing on other types of positions, including Marketing, Fund Raising, Finance, etc., all with a strong focus on Higher Education.

In fact one of the things that we consistently hear from our clients is that they love the fact that with one call, we can truly handle ALL of their staffing needs!

We believe strongly that higher education facilities should build a dynamic learning environment that thrives on the merits, diversity and qualification of its staff.
