Governors/Chair of Governors

Various, across England
Salary/salary scale: 

We are seeking governors and chairs of governors to strengthen our governing boards across the OAT family.

Ormiston Academies Trust is a multi-academy sponsor whose mission is to become the Trust that makes the most difference, both inside and outside the classroom. Working in areas of deprivation, our core purposes are to teach, to develop, to change and support. OAT requires high calibre, committed governors to support academies on their journey of improvement and transformation.

With 39 academies in the network, Ormiston is seeking people who share our ethos and values and can offer leadership and experience as well as the right level of challenge and support to our academies. Our values are aspirational – we believe that anyone can excel, that we must be inclusive, share what is best and embrace the challenge ahead of us.

If you share our values and feel you can offer valuable skills and experience to academy governance we would like to hear from you. If we match you to a vacancy you will receive induction training and subsequently benefit from ongoing development and support.

Our organisation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff including governors to share this commitment. Before your appointment as governor is confirmed you will be required to undertake an enhanced DBS check (or provide details of your current CRB).
