Venturers Trust is a dynamic and focused multi-academy trust comprising primary, secondary, all-age schools and a special school in Bristol. The Trust is responsible for eight academies, 3,200 pupils and 700 staff with a commitment to making a significant and lifelong difference to the lives of young people from some of Bristol’s most disadvantaged communities.
We now seek an innovative, strategic and inspirational Chief Executive to grow the Trust’s reach and impact further. The appointee will shape the evolution of the Trust and share our ambition to achieve outstanding outcomes for every student, harnessing the expertise offered by two exceptionally supportive and engaged sponsors: The Society of Merchant Venturers and the University of Bristol. Working with a dedicated Trust Board and a high performing Executive Leadership Team, the next Chief Executive will guide the strategy in line with our vision to provide an outstanding education for every pupil, regardless of background or starting point, as well as create a team-orientated culture of best practice and continual improvement.
The new Chief Executive will demonstrate high levels of personal integrity, and exceptional interpersonal and communication skills. A confident ambassador, he or she will develop partnerships with the Trust as well as encourage cross-Trust and MAT-to-MAT learning, nurturing leadership talent from within. The appointee will be flexible, energetic, entrepreneurial and resilient, and will demonstrate a profound resonance with the transformative power of education. Prior experience in education is not essential and the Trust welcomes applications from candidates with commercial, charitable, private-sector and public-sector backgrounds.
