Higher Education and Research

Forward-thinking, visionary leadership

At Oxford HR, we excel at identifying and appointing highly skilled Professors and Directors for Universities, Research and related organisations that are global leaders in their fields across a wide range of functional areas.

Higher education and research institutions now require broad visionary leaders that may have primary expertise in the arts, humanities, engineering or science but can also consider the bigger questions for education, teaching and their own research. Institutions need to be forward-looking and have an inter-disciplinary approach to their research and educational training, as well as considering the benefits of industrial partnerships, international collaborations and the proposed impact of their research.

Student choice is now greater than ever, and funding has become increasingly competitive, so positive and measurable outcomes are critical to these institutions’ success. 

Oxford HR draws upon a diverse and international network to find the leaders that educational institutions need to deliver transformational research and educational outcomes that can make a real difference to the local and global economy, communities and populations.
