About Gemma

Gemma McSweeney
Associate Director

As Associate Director, my main responsibilities include heading up our leadership division, leading on operational strategy and managing our recruitment team. My main aim is to make sure we work together as a team, share best practice and are continuously developing our skills, particularly in areas such as safeguarding for international schools.

With over 15 years experience in developing talent acquisition and recruitment strategies I have led on our large-scale recruitment partnerships with schools or groups such as the International Schools Partnership, Brookes Education and the Harrow International Schools Group – providing in excess of 1000 teachers across the three groups.

During my time at TIC (12 years!), I’ve been lucky enough to visit some incredible international schools around the world including all Harrow International Schools, United World College South East Asia (Singapore), American School of the Hague, BIS Ho Chi Minh City, and many more. I also attend several of the major annual international school conferences such as COBIS, ECIS, BSME and FOBISIA.

I have led global searches for key Leadership roles at some of the best international schools, and pride myself on establishing long lasting relationships with our candidates and schools.
