Hiring a key administrator shouldn’t be a full-time job.

When you partner with Carney, Sandoe & Associates to hire a key administrator—an assistant or division head, dean, college counselor, admissions director, diversity director, or other major role—the only decision we want you to have to make is to choose the best candidate from our pool of finalists. We want you to be able to use your valuable time at key points in the process and to have provided you with the most useful intel to make an informed decision that results in a lasting appointment.

Through the proactive, responsive, and thorough support of our Consultants, we handle all of the organization, outreach, timing, and procedures leading up to the interview stage in a search. Then we take care of referencing, communication, and help with negotiations so you can hire the administrators you need.

CS&A makes it a full-time job to know as many people in the education community as possible—to know what kind of work they do, who does it well, who the promising or proven leaders are, and what their professional goals look like. Our Consultants work to keep you fully informed about all of your candidates in a search so that you can make the right decision for your school.

Our commitment to equity and inclusion surfaces in our team’s dedication to consistently increasing diversity in schools and colleges by providing access to a multifaceted candidate pool. Our network comes in part from having recruited and placed hundreds of persons of color to work in independent schools across the country and around the world and from our FORUM/DEIB event we hold each year. Additionally, all head of school searches include the option of engaging in implicit bias training for search committees at no extra cost.
