“It was a pleasure being a candidate in the recruitment process conducted by Liam King and Liz Jones. While these processes are rigorous, I felt completely supported at all stages, and the communication from Liam and Liz was outstanding, making me feel valued. Fisher Leadership went on to conduct the search for Girton Grammar School’s Deputy Principal and I could not have been happier with this process. “
