What will you be doing?

We have an excellent board of seven trustees, but have identified the following gaps, which we would like to recruit to:

Social media and marketing, to help us ensure we develop a strategy to communicate our work effectively. Fundraising, to help us develop and implement our fundraising strategy. Business and growth management, to support our business strategy – for this role you would need to have experience of financial reporting and control, to help us maximise the benefit of every pound we raise.

Previous board/trustee experience is not necessary and we particularly welcome applications from a range of backgrounds so that we can best represent the communities we serve. We wish to ensure our Board of Trustees is fully representative of our communities. These positions could therefore suit individuals taking their first steps to develop wider board level and governance experience. If you don’t have these skills but you believe that your background could be useful to us and you are interested in joining our board, please do still get in touch.

What are we looking for?

Each trustee must have:

A high level of enthusiasm and motivation A commitment to the mission of ETSP A willingness to meet the minimum time requirement Integrity and objectivity Strategic vision and the ability to focus on practical issues Good, independent judgement An ability to think creatively A willingness to speak their mind An understanding and acceptance of the legal duties, responsibilities and liabilities of trusteeship An ability to work effectively as a member of a team and to act sole in the interests of ETSP without regard to personal interest or benefit. No significant potential conflicts of interest.

  The board of trustees collectively needs skills and experience in the following areas:

Financial management, income generation and enterprise Public policy and public affairs National and local voluntary sector Digital strategy Human resource management Funding/foundations Collaborative partnerships Social investment and impact.

What difference will you make?

As part of our board you will support and shape our work and strategic direction, as well as help us achieve our purpose to bring our community of schools together to help our children and young people flourish. Our objectives i.    Developing collaboration between schools and other educational bodies and the wider community in which they operate, promoting positive community engagement in schools and with families. ii.   Providing opportunities for disadvantaged pupils through the provision of services, facilities and activities to develop the capacity and skills of parents and carers of children and young people to enable them to engage more with the education of, and to identify and help meet the needs of, the children and young people in their care. iii.  The provision of training to individuals involved in the education and pastoral care of children and young people in order to equip them with the skills required to deliver such education and to support the social and emotional well-being of the children and young people in their care.
