Like all industries that have been exposed to the rigours of globalization, the UK Universities and Higher Education sector is undergoing rapid change. Our Higher Education Institutions are facing a wide variety of new challenges as funding models continue to evolve and digital technology disrupts traditional learning practices.
Despite intense competition from around the world, the UK remains a global centre of academic and research excellence, and this is driven, in part, by the quality of talent that leads our world-class institutions. Yet today’s higher education leaders require a very different set of skills from those they needed 20 years ago. They must combine strategic vision with sharp commercial acumen, and they must be able to develop innovative new funding solutions, create compelling new ways to engage students and alumni, and they must be able to forge close collaborative partnerships with private sector organisations.
Stone Executive has an impressive track-record in headhunting higher education executives and senior staff. We work with world-leading universities, university colleges, colleges of higher education and specialist institutions, and our higher education headhunters have the knowledge and networks to help these institutions attract high-calibre leaders, including senior academic and research staff plus non-academic executives.
