"HEARTS Academy Trust used Impetus’ recruitment services for the first time in February 2017. We have worked with Andrew and his colleagues for many years on school improvement and they understand the difficulties in getting high-quality candidates, particularly for leadership positions. We felt this step in engaging a professional service from someone who really knows the education sector was vital. We were not disappointed and Andrew supported us at every stage in the process, including targeting people for the role, preparing the recruitment pack, and developing the structure of the interview day with senior staff. We recruited a high-quality candidate who was sourced by Impetus, and this person will support the further development and improvement of the schools in the Trust. Would have no hesitation in using Impetus again." 

- Debbie Rogan OBE Executive Headteacher, HEARTS Academy Trust

"We recently appointed a new Deputy Headteacher. Andrew advised and supported the governors and myself throughout the process, helping us with practicalities such as designing a data exercise as well as assisting on the day with activities, such as lesson observations. Andrew's role on the interview day was particularly helpful as he provided direction and focus which ensured that we stayed objective throughout."

- Ann Robinson, Headteacher, Buttsbury Junior School
