Chief Executive Officer. The Active Learning Trust
Competitive six figure salary, plus package
The Active Learning Trust is a Multi-Academy Trust working with 21 schools across the East of England with a strong record of school improvement. The Trust is committed to excellence in education and the well being of our pupils and to an uncompromising professionalism in everything we do. Our pupils, students and staff are at the heart of our organisation. Since its inception in 2012 the Trust has grown steadily into one of the leading multi academy Trusts in the region.
In advance of the retirement of our interim CEO, and in taking over from our previous long-standing CEO, we are seeking an exceptional candidate to take forward and develop our Trust in its next stages of consolidation and development. Working closely with our knowledgeable and committed Board of Trustees and in partnership and collaboration with our range of stakeholders you will lead our schools on the next stage of the Trusts journey towards being an outstanding organisation.
The successful candidate will be an outstanding leader who can wholeheartedly embrace the Vision and Values of ALT and will empower others to do the same. The Trust has invested in strong leaders in its academies and they will look to you to galvanise their efforts and give them clear and fair leadership.
You will be highly accomplished at developing professional networks and partnerships, understand that financial probity and strong governance are at the heart of a secure organisation; and someone who never loses sight of our young people being the reason we all strive for them to be the best they can be- every single one of them!
If you have the determination to make a positive difference, have a track record of strong leadership in a large organisation, and the desire to move our Trust forward then we would like to hear from you. It may be that you are a professional from an education background at Executive Head, CEO, or a sector leadership role looking to take on a bigger challenge. Alternatively you may come from a quality assured service focused and multi-site environment and be knowledgeable and ambitious to improve the life challenges of young people. Wherever you come from you will possess the strategic nous and vision that will take your people with you.
The Trust hopes to appoint our new CEO to commence work as early in the new academic year as possible. Whilst administrative HQ are based in Ely Cambridgeshire this role will benefit from flexible working location arrangements.
