Trustee (Non-Executive Director) x 2

This is a voluntary role

This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the quality and governance of our leading multi-academy trust.

Successful from both an educational and financial management perspective, Bourne Education Trust (‘BET’) is looking to recruit two trustees (non-executive directors) with executive leadership and either education or financial experience to join its board.

We are looking for candidates who are perhaps coming to the end of their term with another successful multi-academy trust and who are looking for a new position. In addition, you may aspire to chair a trust and wish to gain more experience in a larger organisation.


Role summary

The competencies required for this role include:

  • Deep understanding of the educational landscape through previous experience as a senior leader in education OR experience as a chief financial officer or finance director in a large commercial organisation or educational establishment
  • Previous experience as trustee of a multi-academy trust or as a non-executive director for a charity or commercial organisation
  • Experience of corporate governance, financial management, risk and the development of an organisation’s strategy
  • Understanding of the attributes of the communities in Surrey, Hampshire and the London Borough of Richmond

Plans for the future

The key challenges for the board over the next 12-24 months are to ensure that the Trust consolidates its position as a leading educational provider in Surrey, Hampshire and the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames through being a trusted member of the community – providing an inspirational education experience which is transformational for all of those involved in both delivering and receiving this. This includes:

  1. Delivering post COVID-19 learning to ensure that the children’s educational and social development is not impaired.
  2. Maintaining and improving standards across all schools in the Trust and ensuring that Ofsted inspections are graded at Good or above.
  3. Continuing to grow the Trust through the addition of schools with complementary profiles.
  4. Maintaining a strong financial position to enable investment in key areas to enhance the educational experience for all children across the Trust.
  5. Ensuring that CPD helps staff to be highly skilled in their roles.
