"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 acknowledge warmly and appreciatively the specialised leadership service and experience Emmaus offers to our Church schools."

Andy Mash, Director of Education - Norwich Diocese

"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

"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, Director of Centre for Catholic Formation - Archdiocese of Southwark

"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."

Sue Collins - Director of Business Services, St Joseph's RC Specialist School and College

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

Bishop Nick Baines - Anglican Bishop of Leeds

"We considered TES Prime, but the critical factor for us was that Emmaus are not only specialists in recruiting Headteachers, they are Christians focused exclusively on recruiting for Church Schools."

Canon Bob Baker, Chair of Governors,The Bishop’s CE School - Thetford

"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

"Emmaus is good news! Through their expertise, professionalism and faith, Emmaus help us attract the talent so vital to the flourishing of our Church Schools."

Canon Derek Holbird, Former Director of Education - Guildford Diocese
