CIS is delighted to announce that Anna Marsden will be joining the International School of Moshi, Tanzania as their new Director after an extensive search process. Our sincere congratulations go out to Anna Marsden and ISM for this excellent appointment.
Originally a psychiatric nurse, Anna started out in education as a science teacher with the Voluntary Services Overseas, teaching in Zimbabwe. She then moved to Swaziland before joining International School Suva, Fiji where she is currently Head of School. Anna will be joined in Tanzania by her partner, Roderick Meuig-Evan, and their two children, Luke and James.
ISM engaged CIS Leadership Searches, represented by Pauline O’Brien, Director of Career & Recruitment Services, to lead the search for the new Director, in a process involving the faculty, staff members, parents, student associations, and the ISM Board. Contending candidates were personally video-interviewed by CIS and reviewed by its global team, to ensure that each of the 8 candidate CIS put forward to ISM was a potential match. The school then selected 3 finalists to interview, inviting them to visit the school, before selecting Anna Marsden.
ISM told CIS:
"Given the nature of the school, a 2-campus school, and the complex time in history as the school is seeking to expand and to join the United World Colleges, finding the right candidate was a particularly challenging task.
After exploring our needs and requirements, Pauline O’Brien acquired accurate understanding of what candidate to look for. She identified excellent candidates and the process eventually resulted in ISM attracting an outstanding candidate, which feels to be the perfect fit for the school."
Anna Marsden said:
"I am delighted to be joining ISM and am looking forward to working with the Board, Faculty, students and community of International School Moshi. I was happily represented by CIS, with Pauline O’Brien as my consultant. Throughout this process, I have found Pauline to be an honest, trustworthy and charismatic individual, whom I have come to both like and respect. She has been an invaluable resource."
ISM is excited about this new appointment and looks forward to welcoming Anna to their school in July 2017.
