Case Study: Interim Director of Governance at a leading Independent Boys’ School
Following the departure of the Director of Governance, an immediate need was identified to bring in an experienced governance and risk specialist who was able to work closely with the Principal. The interim would be responsible for leading the development of the governance strategy, policies, procedures and programs and continue to embed a risk and compliance across the school and wider community, whilst the search was undertaken for the permanent position.
With tight timeframes in place, the Gig executive team activated our extensive governance and risk network. We identified several possible candidates and jointly assessed their suitability and availability to fulfil this important bridging appointment.
The successful Interim Director of Governance was an experienced interim candidate who had just concluded a previous role. Their knowledge and experience in governance, legislative and regulatory compliance and safety made them the right choice for the role.
Working closely with the Principal and their senior executive team the Gig Executive had an immediate impact at the school and contributed towards creating a risk and compliance across the school. They continue to positively impact the school and provide experienced advice during a period of change.
