Finance portfolio holder
about 2 months ago
The First Federation Trust
We are a successful multi academy trust of 15 primary schools, some Church of England and some community, stretching along the South Coast of Devon. Our Trust vision is that "Everyone works to enable outstanding learning and teaching - putting children first". We were one of the first maintained school federations in the country and have a track record of improving schools by working collaboratively.
We are looking for a director/trustee with accountancy skills and experience of strategic financial and resource management to take over from the current finance portfolio holder who has become our chair. You do not need to be a specialist in education: training will be provided around school governance and education policy.
We are a friendly team of trustees, working together for the benefit of our 3,000 pupils, and more generally Devon pupils through our teaching school. The board meets four times a year, and the finance & strategic committee meets six times a year. All meetings are held in the early evenings, either on the edge of Newton Abbot or in Exmouth. Information for meetings is shared via a dedicated governance site called GovernorHub.
You can find more information about us on our website.
This is a volunteer role for which a DBS check is required.
Please contact Isabelle Candy, our Company Secretary, for an informal chat about the role. We look forward to hearing from you!
