Mulgrave School selected CIS Leadership Searches, represented by Pauline O’Brien, Director of Career & Recruitment Services, to lead the search for a Senior School Principal, in a process involving the faculty, staff members, parents, student associations, and the Mulgrave School Board. CIS received 35 initial applications. In consultation with Mulgrave, a process of careful evaluation ensued, matching the skills, experiences and philosophies of the candidates against the needs of the school. Contending candidates were personally video-interviewed by CIS and reviewed by its global team, to ensure that each of the 10 candidates CIS put forward to Mulgrave was a potential match. The school then selected six finalists to interview, subsequently selecting Dr. Tabet.
John Wray, Head of Mulgrave School: We were very happy with the CIS recruitment service who brought us a high quality group of applicants from CIS schools around the world.
Dr. Chiara Tabet: I’m so excited to be joining the team at Mulgrave. Also, in my experience, the CIS Leadership recruitment service is phenomenal. Throughout my application process, I have received not only valuable administrative assistance, but also and most importantly extremely helpful advice, mentoring and high quality professional support from Pauline O’Brien. I wholeheartedly recommend the CIS leadership recruitment service for current and aspiring leaders looking for new career opportunities.
Mulgrave School is excited about this new appointment and looks forward to welcoming Chiara to their school on in August 2017.
