Sabre Education is one of the leading early years education organisations in Ghana transforming the lives of children by providing access to quality years education. They were seeking a talented Operations Manager and tried recruiting themselves first. After a round of interviews, and not finding a successful candidate, they reached out to Oxford HR who had been successful in a previous recruitment Sabre had in 2016. After conversations with Oxford HR they raised the level of the role to Operations Director.
Elizabeth Williams Bassi stood out as “she had a mix of private and third sector work experience. She had worked on a much larger portfolio than ours and had experience in compliance. Furthermore, she had “stickability”. She had spent a number of years working with and consistently being promoted in the same organisation”, said Jon Beaulieu, the hiring manager.
For Elizabeth, “coming to Sabre presented me an opportunity for my “next step” in my career development by providing me more responsibility in an entirely new area. […] I feel elated to be a part of the great team in Sabre Education and the work that is being done in the pre-primary education sector and the overall impact on the lives of the children. It is also a privilege to be a part of the growth and expansion of Sabre Education to all of Ghana and beyond.”
As for the experience with Oxford HR, Elizabeth says the team was fantastic, providing her with enough information for each stage. Jon, on the other hand, makes us blush saying that “the team at Oxford HR was great. They were flexible in how we worked together to meet our needs and lived up to their commitments”, providing a range of highly qualified candidates and checking in from time to time on the different stages.
