While we have an unparalleled network of connections around the South, our candidates come from around the country—and the globe.
Our continuous and extensive marketing efforts (especially via the Friday Evening Star) are supplemented by robust advertising campaigns for our retained searches, campaigns that are designed to ensure that highly qualified administrative candidates around the country know about these enticing opportunities.
We recruit nationally to serve schools in the South—where we’ve earned our reputation, developed our expertise, and built relationships for over a century.
We’re devoted to the South’s vitality and promise. We know the independent schools here—their missions, cultures, histories, expectations, and aspirations.
Our competitors simply don’t share our Southern focus and commitment. That’s why schools in the South turn to us repeatedly and in ever-increasing numbers.
An independent school administration job search is a complex process, and a successful outcome is of paramount importance to the wellbeing of your school. Whom should you trust to lead your search? The team with the most relevant experience to the challenge at hand. Southern Teachers has that team.
Jamie Estes, our director of search services, has conducted 100 leadership searches during his eleven years on staff. He and the ST admin team have placed hundreds more administrators via contingency listings. He's one of the most experienced professional search consultants available, and the only one at his level who focuses exclusively on independent schools in the South. Now, that's serious expertise.
What has impressed us most has been the depth of their knowledge of their candidates and our school. Finding the right 'match' in hiring is tremendously important, and Southern Teachers gets it.
At each juncture in my career, I have reconnected with Southern Teachers. They are unique among teacher agencies in that they commit time and resources to knowing candidates and building partnerships with them.
Southern Teachers is one of the easiest placement organizations I have worked with. Your staff is accessible, supportive, and sustains a high level of engagement. Your website is easy to navigate and the video introductions of candidates are a real plus.
Southern Teachers has been a great long-term partner in our hiring. Taking the time and making the effort to know our school and its culture has built a relationship that has allowed you to send us better candidates.
