This is an exciting and rewarding opportunity for a business professional to use their skills and expertise to benefit the children of Norfolk. Make the most of your abilities by giving back to your local community!
At The HEART Education Trust, we believe that we are here to provide better life-chances for children through education. As a four primary school multi-academy Trust in the Norwich area, we serve some of Norfolk’s most disadvantaged children. Those children are the future, and regardless of their starting points in life, they will change the world. However, a lot goes into running an organisation with such high aspirations, and we need to ensure that we have the right people in leadership. Whilst we have an Executive Board responsible for the management of the Trust, it is important that we have a robust system of governance in place. We achieve this through an internal control and risk management framework and a Board of Trustees with the a compilation of skills and knowledge. We are currently seeking a trustee with a professional qualification or experience in finance and accountancy.
When you join The HEART Education Trust, you join an organisation with the passion and commitment to change lives. As a trustee, you will be responsible for:
- ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
- holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
- overseeing and ensuring effective financial performance
