    PRINCIPAL

    Blackfriars Priory School

    Blackfriars Priory School is the only school in Australia founded by the Dominican Friars.  The mission and vision of Blackfriars remains faithful to the search for Truth (Veritas) as lived and taught by the Order of Preachers (Dominicans), founded by Saint Dominic in Toulouse, France, over 800 years ago.  The philosophy of Blackfriars is to educate in the pursuit of truth through a life of contemplation, study and action. Blackfriars is a Christ-centred Eucharistic community and this is reflected in all facets of its learning and teaching including an active prayer life and a passion for knowledge, ministry, justice, peace, equality and pastoral care.

    Blackfriars has, under the current Principal Simon Cobiac and the School Board, transformed the School’s landscape and facilities, inspired a warm and connected community, and demonstrably advanced its commitment to excellence in teaching and learning.  Regrettably, Simon Cobiac will retire at the end of 2021.  On behalf of the Dominican Friars, the School Board now enthusiastically invites candidates who are driven by a passion to serve to apply for the role of Principal to:

    • provide a transformative and leading learning environment;
    • inspire a thirst for learning, where boys develop as resilient, connected and engaged young men;
    • harness meaningful and inclusive relationships across the School community;
    • sustainably manage the physical and financial resources of the School;
    • lead and empower a team of dedicated and progressive professionals to deliver on the above and much more, as inspired by the School’s new strategic plan.

    This opportunity will be right for an extraordinary leader who is principled in their Catholic faith, willing to embrace the Dominican tradition, is exceptional and experienced in executive leadership qualities, passionate about the education and wellbeing of boys, capable of furthering the enviable reputation of the School, and who will inspire and foster a community that is engaged in local and global partnerships.

Track Record

Since 1993, Hender Consulting has been providing executive search, recruitment and associated services with an unwavering client focus and complete commitment to quality, integrity, authenticity, confidentiality, objectivity, responsiveness, independence and trusted advice. 

The firm now handles clearly more senior executive appointments than any other South Australian business and is widely regarded as the leading provider of executive search and selection in SA. This is underpinned by a significant portfolio of senior appointments. 

For the last decade or more, Hender Consulting has, on average, appointed a CEO or equivalent role every 24 days and two General Manager (C Suite) or Manager roles every week. Please click on the PDFs below for a list of past appointments we have facilitated. 

CEO or equivalent appointments 

General Manager (C Suite) and Manager appointments

Importantly, and as evidence of the satisfaction with the Hender service, virtually 100% of our work is repeat business, via referral or generated by selective tenders. 

We are also regularly re-engaged to recruit for executive positions years later after a successful appointee retires or moves on to a new opportunity. 

Services

Since 1993, Hender Consulting has been providing six core professional services within the human resources domain.

Executive Search

We are regularly engaged to search for key executives and managers locally, nationally and internationally. We invite you to review our Track Record and an extensive list of significant executive searches. 

Advertised Executive Recruitment 

The firm utilises a wide range of high profile print and online advertising mechanisms to attract a competitive field of applicants for key executive and management positions across South Australia. We invite you to review our Track Record for an extensive list of executive appointments. 

Remuneration Benchmarking and Advice 

Many of our clients engage us to provide independent remuneration advice in regard to executive, management and technically specialised positions. Due to our extensive and consistent recruitment activity across most industries, we are able to keep a constant finger on the pulse of remuneration trends in the South Australian marketplace. 

Independent Executive Performance Reviews 

We are regularly engaged to conduct confidential independent executive appraisals for a range of public and private entities. 

Non Executive Board Director Search and Selection 

Due to our extensive professional networks, the firm is regularly engaged to identify and appoint Non Executive Directors for both the commercial and not for profit sectors. 

General People and Culture Advice 

The highly experienced Hender Consultants are regularly engaged to provide formal and informal advice in the areas of human resources strategy, succession, retention, leadership, structure and culture. 

For a confidential discussion or enquiry regarding any of the services above, please call us on +61 8 8100 8888 or email our General Manager – Andrew Reed at andrew.reed@hender.com.au 

At Hender Consulting, we take an ethical approach to recruitment and associated services for our client – the employer. To this end, and due to the inherent conflict of interest that it creates, Hender Consulting does not provide commercial executive mentoring or coaching for candidates but can recommend highly competent providers of such services. We are also not providers of industrial relations legal advice but can refer you to appropriate professionals from our extensive and trusted networks. 

Our People

At Hender Consulting, our consultants and support professionals are carefully chosen based on experience, professionalism, authenticity, integrity, judgement and unwavering client focus. The firm has a remarkable and uncommon record securing and retaining some of the most experienced professionals in the industry and beyond. 

Having the most experienced and stable executive recruitment team in South Australia creates value for the client due to our: 

  • Capacity to understand, scope and deliver complex executive search due to our extensive professional networks and experienced researchers
  • Significant intellectual property regarding executive candidate calibre
  • Understanding of the key industries and demographics affecting the SA economy and labour market
  • Knowledge of current remuneration trends across disciplines and industry settings
  • Experience navigating the complexities, sensitivities, risks and communication strategy required during important executive appointments
  • Extensive experience assessing leadership traits through rigorous assessment methodologies
  • Capacity to conduct effective due diligence on candidates including but not limited to rigorous reference and qualification checking
  • Preparedness to offer objective, independent and well reasoned and researched advice without fear or favour
