Select Education Founder Retires
Staff and fellow recruiters at Randstad Education, the new name for Select Education, gathered on Saturday 30th January 2010 to bid a fond farewell to Bob Wicks, who has retired this week after over 40 years in the industry, most recently as executive chairman and chief executive officer at the company.
Bob founded Select Education in 1993 to consolidate supply teacher provision and the company quickly became the UKs largest supplier of supply teachers and support staff. During the 16 years Bob has been at Select Education, the recruitment consultancy has filled nearly 5.5 million teacher days and Select Education teachers have provided education for around 164.5 million children.
John Dunn, director at Randstad Education, comments: So many of our recruiters have said how great it has been to work with Bob. His knowledge of the education recruitment industry has been invaluable to Select Education and an instrumental part of its success. From both a professional and personal point of view I wish Bob all the best for the future.
