Where our edtech executive search offering can help.

EdTech and Learning Technologies

Despite its digitally-confident audience, education has been typically behind the curve in terms of technology adoption. This is especially true in the classroom.

Disruption in the education sector due to Covid has shone a spotlight into the use of technology for remote learning. It has also changed the methodology by which education can be delivered.

Sienna Edge can help companies at the cutting edge of these fields find technology leadership to deliver innovation and commercial pioneers and evangelists to deliver growth.

SaaS business is disrupting and challenging every aspect of how we undertake our lives. As a result, how we deliver services.

This includes established organisations moving towards a subscription-based model, for instance.

Sienna Edge understands SaaS. It partners with high growth companies to recruit outstanding leaders to mission critical commercial and operational seats.

An exhaustive search is undertaken to identify outstanding talent able to execute on the remit. This will consist of identifying circa 150 highly qualified candidates to approach, depending on the nature of the position.

Candidates are approached and interviewed for interest and relevancy. Because of this, the research team goes far beyond a cursory review of a candidate’s digital footprint. We really understand a candidate’s journey and career aspirations.

We use the latest practices in qualitative psychological assessment to provide a complete picture.
