Appointment of Chair of Board of Trustees
ACS International Schools is a leading provider of high quality international education, operating schools (day and boarding) that enrol circa 3,500 students between the ages of 3 to 18 from around the world at four campuses in the UK and Qatar. After 50 years as a successful commercial entity, ACS became a charity in October 2017. This will open up further prospects for the growth and development of their schools, and additional opportunities to broaden the public benefit.
This is an exciting opportunity to play a significant role in the future development of ACS International which is a truly special organisation. The Chair will lead a committed Board of Trustees as they endeavour to become a leading international education charity. He/she will be pivotal in setting both the short and long-term strategic plans as well as working with a strong leadership team as they manage the day-to-day operations.
The Chair will need to be creative, ambitious and charismatic, and fully committed to the objectives and mission of ACS International Schools. The ideal candidate will bring personal gravitas and senior experience as well as previous board or committee chair experience and an in-depth understanding of the not-for-profit sector. Some knowledge of education would be useful, but not essential. A commercial and international outlook would be highly beneficial.
The time commitment is expected to be around 24 days, typically spread evenly throughout the year.
