Regional Director: South

Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT)South of England (with home base)

For over a decade, Ormiston Academies Trust has been steadily, conscientiously helping children to realise their fullest human potential. From the outset, our sole focus has been to provide the best, most transformative educational experience possible, changing lives one lesson – one question, one insight, one discovery – at a time. 

Our national network is served by an exceptionally high-performing team of Regional Directors, and we now have an opportunity to take up this exciting, visible and rewarding role in the South of England. We're looking for people whose track record lives up to our high expectations: likely to have held more than one headship, and able to demonstrate sustained impact, you will have an unusually broad and nuanced perspective on how schools thrive and improve, as well as a strong preference for variety and challenge. 

The sheer breadth and interest of working across a number of schools, leadership teams and communities is one of the role's most attractive features; but the reward of playing your part in the steady improvement of outcomes for thousands of learners is just as powerful. We want to hear from experienced school leaders who will relish the opportunity to work at every level with and within their portfolio of schools: from chairing strategic progress meetings, to sharing best practice across the Trust, to walking the playground at breaktime, and everything in between.

You'll be ready to take accountability at a significant level. This role will be part of the national OAT leadership team, and we're looking for candidates who combine evidence-based decision-making with professional ownership. Optimistic, pragmatic and passionate about the potential of our schools to change lives, you'll be a flexible self-starter who can work supportively and positively as we constantly challenge ourselves to get better.

Closing date: 10am, Monday 19 April 2021.
