We are a family of schools brought together by one common vision and a passionate belief that each and every child can lead a remarkable life. An excellent education transforms lives and every pupil who attends one of our schools is given the support, care and opportunity they need to flourish. 

Good governance is a fundamental element of all good schools, and this is an exciting opportunity to play a key role in delivering the highest standards of progressive governance across a leading national Educational Trust with around 60 schools and over 30,000 pupils. 

As an exceptionally well-organised individual you will support the efficient functioning of the Board and its committees, enabling the Trustees to discharge their responsibilities effectively. You will also support the academy Governing Bodies, in particular ensuring high standards amongst the network of clerks, improving processes, and providing quality assurance in policy administration and the publication of statutory information across the Trust. 

To be successful in this role, you will need the following skills:

  • Graduate with ICSA or similar professional qualifications relating to governance, policy administration or compliance

  • Experience of large multi-site organisations and of working with, and influencing colleagues, senior executives and non-executives.

  • Confidence in the use of collaborative office technologies (ideally G Suite)

  • Attention to detail, taking pride in well drafted documents and communications

  • A high degree of integrity, confidentiality, discretion

The role is ideal for individuals with previous educational governance experience but equally is an exciting opportunity for individuals seeking to develop their career in an area that sits at the heart of the education sector.

You will be joining the leading inclusive educational trust in the country - one where you have more opportunities to forge your own path, where your work is truly valued and where you will receive the recognition and rewards to motivate you to build on your achievements.
