The
success of schools depends on effective recruitment and selection of school
leaders. The present study sought to understand the processes of recruiting and
selecting public school leaders in Saudi Arabia from their perspectives.
Interview data were collected from 39 high school leaders in the Eastern
province in Saudi Arabia. The results of the study indicated that the school
leadership hiring process in Saudi Arabia consists of few linear steps where
the ministry engages in an effort to attract candidates from internal
resources, followed by initial screening, and a formal interview to select the
candidate from the pool. The analysis also revealed several challenges involved
in the recruitment and selection processes of prospective candidates. Based on
the findings of this study, schools are currently struggling to recruit
qualified candidates that commensurate the mission and the needs of our
schools. Therefore, we recommend providing appropriate budget, resources, and
training to human resource staff to effectively communicate with prospective
candidates, identify the type of candidates and design recruitment and
selection strategy accordingly.
