Governance Vacancies on the Board of Trustees

Stephenson Multi Academy Trust currently comprises of just over 1800 students across Rainhill High School and Sixth Form, with partners Robbie Fowler Football Academy and Liverpool Football Club.

When children join us at the age of 11, they join a very special community. As a school we value each student as an individual and aim to provide the best level of care, learning and development for each one of them, within and beyond the classroom. Our aim is to ensure that students leave us as happy, self-assured and independent individuals with a clear sense of social responsibility and the skills and qualifications to take their next steps confidently.

We are currently seeking dynamic, committed and morally principled people to work with us who will share our commitment to excellence, innovation and collaboration and who can attend daytime and/or evening meetings, with any of the following skillset/experience:

  • Accountancy and/or Finance
  • Legal skills and/or qualifications
  • Education (any phase)

In return, you would know that you would be making a difference to the life chances of children and young people.

As a Trustee you would not be expected to have a working knowledge of the education sector; what is more important to the role is your specific working skillset.

The role of Trustee would be challenging but also rewarding; in giving something back to the community, Trustees would develop a range of both new and existing skills in addition to receiving free training and opportunities for professional development.

The typical time commitment would be to attend three Board meetings and three Sub-Committee meetings per year in addition to the AGM, and at least one visit to the site during the working day to undertake a tour and/or Link Trustee visit.

To apply - please send a copy of your CV, together with a 1 x sided overview of how your qualifications, skills and experience to date make you an ideal candidate to Rob Owens (Company Secretary) – by 5pm on Tuesday 12th January 2021.
