AMC did a very good job helping Brummana High School to recruit an excellent new head within a short period of time. It was able to understand the school needs and found the person capable of dealing with them to ensure BHS positioning and sustainability in the challenging market of education. I recommend AMC without any hesitation.

Bursar, Brummana High School, Lebanon
We were delighted with the whole selection process orchestrated by AMC. AMC took a great deal of time to understand both the culture of the School and the detailed job specification for the Head and played an important part in assisting with all the interviews by providing valuable counselling and direction.
Mr Chris Holt
Chair of Governors, Rossall School
Highly professional service providing a range of candidates that would not have been sourced through conventional advertising. Excellent support throughout the recruitment process resulting in the appointment of an outstanding Head in a tight timescale. Certainly worth the investment. Highly recommend.

Anthony Millard Consulting Ltd (‘AMC’) is a longstanding Supporting Member of COBIS, providing specialist consultancy and leadership search and recruitment. It is a leader in its field. I have had the privilege of observing AMC’s services for several years to many schools of quality – both UK independent and also British overseas schools. I know from personal experience and also from reports and feedback from its clients that its services are highly praised and valued. They are, I believe, distinguished by personal and professional care, experience, integrity and reliability and an excellent understanding of the networks and circumstances in which such schools operate. They undoubtedly provide good value. For these reasons, I am pleased to endorse and to recommend AMC’s work warmly and without reservation.

AMC have supported Malvern College International extensively over the last 6 years in recruiting for a number of leadership positions both in our international schools and in our UK-based international team at Malvern College. AMC’s most recent project for Malvern was the appointment of a Director of Education for Malvern College International in November 2015.
We have always found AMC to be thorough and diligent in their work for us, from gaining a full understanding of the brief through to handling communications with candidates and making the logistical arrangements for the interview process. In short, Anthony Millard and his team have demonstrated keen insight into our needs as a client and we have found working with AMC to be a rewarding experience.

Having found our current Principal through AMC, the Trustees of the British School in Tokyo needed no persuasion to approach Anthony Millard again to lead the search for an outstanding Head of Secondary. Once more, we were delighted with both the process and the successful outcome. AMC delivered a very strong field, matching the demanding criteria set out in our person specification, and as a result we were able to appoint a first-class addition to our Leadership Team.

AMC provide an efficient and personal ‘start to finish’ with every head hunting exercise. Their ability to understand the nature of the individual school is excellent and the management of the process is highly professional.

Many thanks for your assistance and guidance through this process. As you know better than I do, the application/selection process can feel quite grueling at times and it was very good to work with someone with such unfussy professionalism.
Candidate appointed as Head of International School of Paris from Sep 2014
AMC’s search came up with an excellent range of candidates which reflected the standing of BIS Jakarta and the vision which the Board have for the school. Their high level contacts in the world of education and the ability to sell the career opportunity which our vacancy provided proved a huge benefit. AMC demonstrated a professional approach and the fact that they care about the school and were accessible and proactive throughout the process all contributed to a very successful outcome and appointment of our new Principal
