Deputy Chief Executive Officer job summary

This is a nationally unique opportunity to be joining one of the most respected and high performing trusts in the country.

This role which is of obvious critical importance in the trust as we go forward in to the next 5 years of our work recognises a deliberate movement on the part of our trustees to strengthen our work on succession planning and to remove any unwanted barriers that exist between the different phases of education. The successful candidate will work closely with our Chief Executive Officer on all aspects of strategic and operational delivery, our trustees and Principals and senior colleagues across all schools. The successful candidate will also lead on some of our most important projects linked to trust growth.

It is likely that you have already established an impressive track record of leadership within a similar setting, including at some point in your career the successful leadership of a school. You will need to have a determination to focus on changing the opportunities available to children whose lives are characterised by privation and an expert understanding of what causes those children to excel in their learning. You will also need to be able to display your support for our values which are built upon diligence, integrity, rectitude and kindness.
