Compass Executives have an established team of executive search professionals who have delivered some of the most senior appointments in the independent Children's Services and Education sectors in the UK.

Compass Executives have supported Investors in some of the most significant appointments within the investment backed, and privately owned, Education space in recent years, whether it is in care, education, or support services.

This is an exciting and constantly moving market that offers opportunities within both the UK and further afield. These sectors can offer high market entry barriers with opportunities to consolidate fragmented spaces where quality and outcomes reflect tangible value.

Compass Executives’ Education Practice completed a number of industry-leading appointments ranging across specialist education, fostering and children’s residential services in the past 2 years, with 15.7% of all Board mandates completed falling into the Education and Children’s Services space.
