Candidate is Key is an executive search and selection business with more than 20 years' experience of appointing senior leaders, particularly headteachers, executive heads and CEOs in the education sector, but also executives to public, private and the not-for-profit sectors.  Our track record covers consultancy support to more than 500 clients at every stage of the process, including advert, job specification, response handling, sifting, assessment and final interview.

As well as being client-focused, we are heavily candidate-focused as our name suggests.  We spend time helping candidates develop their strengths and talents so that they can more effectively position themselves for that next job opportunity.  We bring significant knowledge of providing CV, application, post application, and interview feedback to thousands of candidates to the table.  We draw on our significant experience as executive recruiters to help shape a candidate's response in respect of positioning their experience, style and fit to a role.
