Liberty Academy Trust has an exciting opportunity for experienced professionals looking to develop new skills as well as make a positive contribution to a family of schools providing specialist education to autistic children, their families and our communities.
Ideally suited to professionals with experience of leadership and decision-making, the role of Trustee is challenging but very rewarding with real scope for personal and professional development as well as enhancing the life chances of our pupils.
No specific qualifications are required to become a Trustee, but there are certain expectations.
We are seeking people who have enthusiasm, time and a real desire to make a significant difference to children, we are especially interested in recruiting Trustees with expertise in at least one of the following areas:
• Previous Multi-Academy Trust Board experience
• Safeguarding of children with complex needs
• Financial expertise, e.g. chartered accountant
• Risk management and audit
• HR and personnel
We are in the process of expanding the Trust Board and refreshing our governance structure, and are bringing several new members on to the Board in the next few months.
You will need to be able to work as part of a team and commit to attend meetings, training and school and Trust monitoring visits. You will need to take a strategic view of the priorities in running a charity.
We'd love to hear from you if you feel you have skills that the Board and Trust would benefit from.
