Vivid Leaders

CEO and founder Kathryn McNee has over 25 years of leadership experience locally and internationally in education as well as talent acquisition. Surrounding Kathryn is an outstanding team of school leaders bringing their knowledge and diverse skills to this dynamic company.

The school market has changed significantly in the past ten years where we have seen leadership roles in particular those of principals reduced to a much shorter tenure. Unfortunately aging is having a negative impact on our current market and workforce.

According to “The Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS) 2018”, Australian teachers on average are 42 years old. Furthermore, 30% of teachers in Australia are aged 50 and above. This means that Australia will have to renew three out of ten members of its teaching workforce over the next decade or so. Also, principals are on average 51 years of age with at least 19% of of those aged 60 and above.

Vivid Teachers has developed strong working relationships with our clients and provide on-going support during the search and selection process in an effort to identify the candidate who will best suit the unique qualities of the targeted schools.

Our services are driven by a deep understanding of our clients’ vision for their school and the qualities which they identify and seek in their leaders. Today’s school leaders need a diverse range of skills and experience to navigate the complexities of their roles and provide the leadership necessary for their school community to thrive.

Service to Leadership Candidates

The school leadership market has changed significantly in the past ten years where we have seen leadership roles in particular the roles of principal increase in demand.

It is anticipated that leadership opportunities will continue to rise and Vivid Teachers is uniquely positioned due to our knowledge of the market and the relationships established with our schools and potential candidates.

The most effective recruitment does not happen with a reaction to an advertisement but reaching out to potential candidates prior to the position becoming available.

Developing sustainable long-term relationships with our leadership candidates allows us to identify a pathway and present opportunities that fit into their career progression.

The most valuable aspect of our process is developing relationships with candidates well before they commence the search for their next role.

We look forward to working on your next career move.
