Primary Practice Group: Schools and Education Organisations

Salary & Benefits: Unremunerated though reasonable travel expenses are reimbursed.

Closing Date: 06/02/2023

Formal Interview Date: Friday 3rd March 2023

With 28 academies across the breadth and depth of the country, E-ACT is one of the largest Multi Academy Trusts in England. The Trust’s network of support and educational expertise is considerable. E-ACT supports their 28 academies, across both Primary and Secondary provision, through two regions, North and South, led by regional education and operations directors and supported by a team of experts in core areas such as teaching, learning and safeguarding. The Trust is also one of the five, large national trusts that reports directly into the Department for Education and is working collaboratively with Director General Andrew McCully.

E-ACT is at an exciting stage of its development. Having grown considerably in recent years, the Trust seeks to continue in their further progression after a period of transformational change within their Executive Leadership Team, and is looking to reinvigorate its leadership and governance.

They now seek two Trustees to join their Board. E-ACT’s Trustees play a crucial role in the governance of the Trust and are ultimately responsible for driving the strategic direction of the Trust board and for the organisation.

E-ACT are open to hearing from individuals from the wider world of education, or from public, private or charitable organisations, who have a vested interest in the progression of the state and Multi Academy Trust sectors. We are particularly interested in those who could bring any of the following skills to our Board: finance, audit and risk; governance; HR; estates; IT and digital; law; education.

We are committed to being representative of the communities that we serve and would therefore particularly welcome interest from those who would increase the diversity of our Board.

It is our priority to continue to encourage our children to believe in their own power to change their lives. Therefore, if you have a passion for the importance of education, to the children in our academies and their contribution to wider society and if you share in our ambitions and values, we would be delighted to hear from you.

 

Completed applications should be uploaded at: https://candidates.perrettlaver.com/vacancies/ quoting reference number 6332. The closing date for applications is 09:00 (GMT) on Monday 6th February 2023.

Inclusion

Perrett Laver believes that excellence will be achieved through recognising the value of every individual. A broad range of perspectives, backgrounds and opinions amongst our global community of colleagues is crucial in maintaining our culture of openness, intellectual curiosity, and creativity. We take an active role in supporting under-represented communities and groups in becoming better and more fairly represented in the leadership of all organisations. We also know that diverse and inclusive teams have a positive impact on our ability to identify, engage and secure candidates from these groups.

Our commitment to inclusion across race, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, identity, and experience drives us every day – for clients, for candidate identification and in the recruitment, development and retention of colleagues. 

To ensure inclusion on the basis of age, disability, ethnic or national origin, family circumstance, gender, gender identity, marital status, nationality, political or religious beliefs, race, socioeconomic background, sexual orientation, we would like to specifically invite applications from under-represented groups.
