ST Search is a division of Southern Teachers. In recent years, more and more schools have asked for our help with leadership searches. To meet this demand, we have grown our search team, adding depth, talent, and specialized expertise. In fact, we have increased our capabilities to the point that “Southern Teachers” can now conduct retained head and leadership searches nationally, not just in the South. A new name reflecting the new stature of our search division is justified, hence, ST Search.
The search for an independent school leader is a complex process, and a beneficial outcome is of paramount importance to the wellbeing of your school. Schools trust us because of our extensive record of success, our ability to reach an exceptionally broad pool of candidates via proprietary products like The Friday Evening Star, and our industry-leading expertise with personality assessments, which helps to ensure that schools hire the right candidate.
According to the Head of School Database, the most experienced head search consultant in America is our director of searches, Jamie Estes.
In almost two decades of work for Southern Teachers, Jamie has run over 200 searches and, overall, has placed over 600 school administrators. In medicine, the more procedures a surgeon has performed, the better their patients' outcome. The same is true with head searches. The greatest predictor for a successful search is the experience of your search consultant.
If you hire ST Search to run a retained search, the service includes Hogan Personality Assessments for the finalist candidates.
If, instead, you choose a contingency search, then you still you can still take advantage of our expertise with these assessments as an add-on service.
Personality predicts performance. Let our consultants help you select the best performers for your school.
