In search of a Headship. By Matthew Williams
Having been a senior leader in the same school for a while, I was ready for a new role in a new school. I was looking for a community-based school, where the staff were passionate about education. From the outset, Byron College in Athens looked like an establishment that suited my skills.
TIC Recruitment provided me with clear, concise information about the school. Of course, I could have worked with Byron College directly, but I think the process would have been much slower. I felt well informed and that TIC had a really clear picture of the type of Head that Byron College were looking for. I immediately felt at ease working with Andrew and Gemma, both of whom were really supportive; it was clear that this was going to be a partnership from the beginning and this helped me immensely.
TIC guided me on general lifestyle factors which was important for me and my family. They were honest and straight with regards to the package and how it compared to other schools and I felt a level of trust that was valuable throughout the entire recruitment process.
I’m really excited about becoming the Head of Byron College in Athens. The school is at the start of a new and exciting chapter and I am honoured and privileged to serve as the Head.
