MRG was appointed by Malvern College in February 2022, following the restructure to a family of schools and the centralisation of their estates team. They were looking for an individual to lead the estates strategy, creating a new masterplan and delivery team.
We undertook a targeted campaign, looking at those with experience within the sector, higher- education and organisations with comparable estates. We undertook a longlist review with a selection of 10 candidates from across the various sectors.
The successful individual came from a competitor independent school and had previous experience of leading complex projects and business innovation. This presented an opportunity to develop the masterplan as well as managing the estates function for both the UK and International campuses.
