Job Description

Bristol based ASDAN, a leading education charity,  is recruiting trustees from a wide range of sectors to broaden the skills and experience of our board.

With several trustees coming to the end of their terms, we are aiming to appoint a new chair and five to six board members. We would particularly welcome applications from those with experience in financial strategy

“It is an exciting time to consider getting involved in ASDAN,” said Alison Delyth, Chair of Trustees. “We have invested in our leadership team, under the stewardship of Jenny Williams, Chief Executive, and are embarking on the next stage of our journey that will see us recognised as a leader in personal, social and work-re­lated learning.

“We have ambitious plans to strengthen and expand our curriculum programmes and qualifications, forge new collab­orative partnerships and make better use of our experience and connectivity as a leading education charity to enable chil­dren and young people to make the most of their talents and abilities.

“Trustees are an impor­tant part of that framework and we are looking forward to recruiting people who share our purpose. Being an ASDAN trustee will require a real commitment to our beliefs, values and prin­ciples. In return, you will be joining a team charging them­selves with a truly rewarding mission – transforming the life chances of children and young people.”

ASDAN is aiming to build a diverse and inclusive board that reflects the young people we serve, and we welcome applications from suitably qualified candidates from all backgrounds and perspectives. We are also keen to encourage and mentor young professionals looking to develop leadership skills as a trustee. There will be a comprehensive induction and support programme for all new trustees.
