Our Industries


The knowledge and skills economy places a high value on lifelong learning and there is an increase in the global demand for accessible and quality education. Digital and technological evolution is transforming the way in which education and training are delivered, with new and established players helping to support lifelong learning.

Executive Search in Education

Education remains the silver bullet that can have a fundamental effect on economies and societal development, which continues to drive a desire to learn and educate children and workforces. Continued professional development and in-house L&D programmes have proved pivotal in developing an effective employee engagement programme and creating a compelling candidate proposition in-order-to attract the best talent.

There are several sub-sectors from within the education universe that have been extremely defensible over the last few years and the technology associated with supporting its adoption and delivery has been pivotal in its development.

Drax have successfully partnered with a range of investors, owners and management teams across Europe that span from professional and corporate learning services, and primary, secondary, and tertiary education sectors.

More specifically this has included children’s nurseries, higher education services and university pathway providers, private school groups and K12 platforms and a number both online and offline corporate/professional learning providers.
