Julia brings over 20 years of experience working in the higher education and not-for-profit sectors, first as a development professional and most recently in executive search. Prior to joining GatenbySanderson, Julia worked for two other prestigious Executive Search firms as Partner and Director of the Education Practice respectively.
Previously, she held leadership fundraising roles at UCL, St Martin-in-the-Fields, Cranfield School of Management and King’s College London before moving into executive search in 2008. Her hands-on experience of working in education and the wider not-for-profit sectors has equipped her to intrinsically understand the complex and individual needs of clients. Also, having experience of being both a client and a candidate, Julia strives to provide an excellent experience for both parties.
Julia leads on a range of leadership roles for a broad range of universities and charities. Julia also has substantial experience helping organisations re-shape their senior leadership teams during times of organisational change.
