The Association of Executive Search and Leadership Consultants (AESC) has 500+ executive headhunters specializing in the recruitment of higher education executives in its member network. AESC executive search consultants seek talent in the Education sector to fill executive higher education positions including Deans, Presidents and Provosts at both private and public universities. AESC members use BlueSteps to source executive talent for a range of industries including recruiting for Higher Education positions.
Dan Parker, President of Parker Executive Search and AESC member consultant, describes the typical candidate for an executive position in higher education in the following way: The candidate should have a PhD, about seven years of experience, and a demonstrated interest and ability in leadership. Parker adds that "you'll see more non-traditional candidates becoming deans of business. They could be a retiring CEO. They may have an MBA and not a PhD. The dean role is much different in business than in Arts & Sciences or Education."
Global cities offering significant recruiters and executive jobs in Education are: Vancouver, London, Dubai, Sydney, Washington DC, Toronto, Chicago, New York, Boston and Frankfurt. However, the AESC network of executive recruiting member firms includes 75 countries spanning the globe.
