Mr Spriggs commented:
“This is a very exciting time for the business, expanding into new markets with new partners we have a fantastic opportunity to offer our service to a broader market of families. We continue to attract families from around the world and have seen a marked increase in families from US, Singapore, and China needing our service for school and University placements.”

Stephen Spriggs added:
“With our insights we have gained from families from around the world moving to the UK at all stages of their journey we are looking to work even closer with schools themselves to help refine their offering, position their branding and improve their admissions process, become more efficient and effective in attracting the right students and ensuring their have access to the world stage of international student recruitment.”
The firm also strengthened its relationships with schools and universities in 2018. Stephen Spriggs stressed that William Clarence offers its services for free to academic institutions and charge no commission when helping them recruit students. The firm has noted a common issue with clients turning to William Clarence after receiving poor advice and guidance from firms chasing commission from schools, and prides itself on acting impartially, professionally, and in the best interests of families.
As a result of its growth in 2018, William Clarence is kicking off 2019 by expanding its team to ensure that this exceptional level of service can be maintained and enhanced in the coming months. Stephen Spriggs hopes to build on the firm’s expertise and cement the firm’s reputation as the leading education advisory service for families to turn to when considering a move to the UK or US.
William Clarence Education is initially recruiting a Director of UK School and University Placements, and a Full-time Office Manager. For more information and to apply, CVs and covering letters can be emailed to [email protected].
