"I have personal experience of the quality of service Emmaus provides, when I successfully applied for a Headship position through them. I always felt I could call up, get the ‘inside take’ on the school and ask any questions in complete confidence. The support and expert advice I received made the application process far less daunting and I would thoroughly recommend Emmaus to any Church School looking to appoint a key Leadership position."

Dan Pickard, Headteacher, The Bishop’s CE Primary School - Thetford

"I cannot imagine a better service to fulfil the requirement of helping a Catholic school find a Head. Emmaus did exactly what they advertised they would do. They researched their network, advertised and presented us with well qualified, high quality, suitable candidates. I was impressed with the number and quality of candidates sourced - I had expected they would attract about half of the candidates they did. Selecting a new Head is intense, complicated and political. It was well worth the price to have an expert like Emmaus guide us safely and successfully through this process."

Marjorie Bannister, Chair - St Michael's Catholic College, London

"Emmaus brings a level of professionalism, seen in other industry sectors, to church schools’ recruitment."

Bishop Nick Baines - Anglican Bishop of Leeds

"Having previously struggled to recruit two Headteachers - for both a Primary and a Secondary school - Emmaus came to the rescue. Their expert advice and deep understanding of recruiting Headship positions in Catholic schools is invaluable, and I have no hesitation in recommending their knowhow and their values."

Fr David Gibbons, Chair of Governors & Parish Priest, Archdiocese of Southwark

"I have no hesitation in commending Emmaus to any school which is seeking to appoint a Christian Head. My only regret is that we did not go to them for the first round of interviews that proved unsuccessful. It is an expensive option, but in the long run they are more than value for money. I am very thankful to God for the ministry of Emmaus, and I warmly commend them to you. In OFSTED terms, they are outstanding."

Bishop Keith Sinclair - Anglican Bishop of Birkenhead

"Emmaus were instrumental in persuading me to apply for the post of Headteacher. I had seen the school advertising in the past but nothing inspired me to get in touch. Once Emmaus advertised I felt intrigued and keen to learn more about the school. I was supported throughout the whole process, which was a very personal and positive experience. I would highly recommend Emmaus to any school thinking of recruiting, and candidates considering registering. If my new school had not used Emmaus I probably wouldn’t have applied."

Hannah Walters, Headteacher, Platt CE Primary School - Kent

"We are delighted with the appointment we made and I have reported to the whole community that we could not have been more thorough in the search or more rigorous in the selection process. Thank you Emmaus Leadership."

Jacqui Feely, Chair at All Hallows Catholic College, Macclesfield

"We have been working with Emmaus Leadership on a number of hard to fill leadership vacancies across the Diocese. All of our dealings have been extremely professional and the feedback from schools has been very positive. It has been somewhat refreshing to deal with a recruitment company that have a good understanding of the Catholic sector, the workings of a Diocese and the requirements of Foundation Governors in appointing senior leaders to our schools. Our experience of Emmaus Leadership has been very positive and I fully recommend their services."

Stephen Bryan, Deputy Director of Education - Archdiocese of Southwark

"Thank you for all your support, advice and professionalism through out the long and complex process of our Head’s appointment. Having helped us appoint first time round it was unfortunate, due to personal circumstances, that our new Head had to subsequently withdraw post appointment. We were truly grateful for your service guarantee, which meant we incurred no further costs in appointing her replacement. Your unfailing support and advice at all times was greatly appreciated."

Nicholas van As, Chair of Personnel Committee - Coulsdon CE Primary School

"Thank you for everything you did to successfully support our recruitment of an outstanding Headteacher for our Roman Catholic Non-Maintained Special School. Using Emmaus Leadership to manage the recruitment to the post was much debated and was the subject of intense scrutiny by our Governing Body who were somewhat reluctant to use a leadership recruitment specialist. However, their confidence was reinstated as a result of your professional approach, your insightful knowledge, the very high standard of advertising of the post and the resulting candidate pool. I have no hesitation in recommending Emmaus to other schools."

Annie Sutton - Executive Principal, St Joseph's RC Specialist School and College
