After an early career in professional education, Elliott joined a leading executive search firm in 2003. Focusing on senior education and government appointments, he rose quickly to become a Director and Practice lead, while also completing an MBA at Henley Management College. Before co-founding Anderson Quigley, he spent five years developing and leading the education practice at another major executive search firm.
Collaborating with clients across the education system, Elliott has supported the appointment of vice-chancellors, chief executives and principals, academic and professional services leaders, chairs and board members. He has also supported leadership roles in a wide range of government agencies including funders, regulators and quality bodies. Passionate about delivering an outstanding candidate and client experience, Elliott is proud to have supported a diverse range of candidates, over two decades, to secure exciting and often transformative new roles. Motivated by his own journey through the education system, Elliott enjoys supporting organisations that deliver societal benefit.
