Edgility Consulting - remote - Full time


Edgility Consulting is a national executive search and human capital consulting firm that focuses exclusively on the recruitment, selection, and placement needs of entrepreneurial and innovative schools and school-serving organizations. With decades of experience in the education space and an extensive network of strong candidates, we connect schools and nonprofits with the right talent every time.

At Edgility, we keep diversity, equity, and inclusion at the core of our work. Our rich variety of networks, perspectives, and abilities lead us to do our best work, providing clients leadership with deeper insights and opportunities. We believe that to solve the challenges related to educational inequity, we need to bring a broad and diverse group of people together and ensure that those most impacted by structural racism and discrimination are represented at the highest levels of the organizations leading that work.

In a proactive and intentional way, we encourage clients to move their culture forward by emphasizing equity and inclusion at each stage of our engagements, from project scoping, needs assessment, outreach, selection strategy, compensation, developing career pathways and board advisement.
