Chief Executive Officer 

Plantsbrook Learning Trust (PLT), Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands

Start date:           Post available from July 2020   

Contract type:     Full Time, Part Time also considered

Salary:  Attractive remuneration package for a suitably qualified and experienced candidate.

Our current Executive Head is retiring at the end of the Academic year and the Trustees of PLT are seeking to appoint an inspirational and innovative leader as Chief Executive Officer to lead our Trust through its next exciting stage of development.

PLT was formed in 2014 when Town Junior joined Plantsbrook School in a Trust. The two schools are on adjacent sites and this has facilitated close collaboration. We have a strong sense of community, with a very clear collective ambition to improve the lives for all our children and we work in close partnership with local schools. For a number of years we have been strategic partners in the National Forest Teaching School Alliance, which operates around North Birmingham and Staffordshire. Town Junior is also a member of the Learning Trust for Excellence.

We have high aspirations for our young people and we use our combined and collaborative strengths to support them and each other to be successful. On the back of our upward trend in children’s outcomes, building on our successes to date and the strengths of our teams, we want the Trust to continue to improve and further grow within our region into a cohesive family of schools, sharing good practice and able to support the improvement journey of member schools.

As CEO you will exemplify the inclusive values and ethos of PLT and its commitment to delivering excellent teaching, exceptional care and outstanding performance, based on collective collaboration. You will have the determination and vision needed to lead the schools, representing the Trust’s values and vision, deepening effective collaboration between schools and leading an inspirational development strategy for PLT.

Applicants for the post will be able to evidence experience of operating at a senior executive level within a MAT environment. You will have had experience of leading growth, reporting to Trustees/Governors and be able to demonstrate sound financial management skills; this will be combined with the ability to build collaborative and strategic partnerships, improve standards and maximise the future opportunities available to the Trust.

As a highly skilled communicator with excellent interpersonal skills, you will have the ability to engage credibly and successfully build, lead and further develop key relationships. The appointed candidate will bring the drive, inspiration and commitment to lead the fresh vision for the Trust and its stakeholders.

This is a remarkable opportunity for a highly motivated individual to join the Trust at a very exciting time in its development.
