Executive & Administrative Searches
Big River Group supports leadership and administrative searches for school districts, non-profits and private businesses. Our approach is unique and personalized to the organization and position being sought.
Resumes & standard interviews are the most unreliable, yet most often-used sources of data regarding applicants. We use a more effective search system that brings new order and elements to searches by using tools and strategies from executive searches in private business. We have a clear and consistent set of steps that reduces search time, allows for more reliable ranking and selection of candidates, uses more accurate interviewing techniques, and promotes a better match between the employer’s needs and the eventual finalist.
We work with you to:
Identify necessary preparation for the process
Work effectively to assemble and prepare an interview team
Develop priorities, questions, rubrics and scoresheets
Effectively screening applicants to select interviewees
Develop and implement the interview process
Support the selection and offering the position
We have run successful searches for:
Superintendents of school district
CEOs of and upper level positions within businesses and non-profit organizations
Upper level school district administrators

School Board Training
The school board in North Branch Area Public Schools has been pleased to work with Bruce Miles on school board development. Members of the school board found Bruce very knowledgeable in board communications, the role of board members and the relationship between the board and superintendent. Each session with Bruce is engaging and informative! Bruce provided the training the board needed.
