The Lincolnshire Educational Trust was established in 2014 and currently has five academies based around Holbeach in Lincolnshire. The Trust educates some 2410 young people and has an annual operating turnover of around £17mn. After five successful years of growth and delivering outstanding quality to its students, the Trust is now poised to develop to its next stage.
In this context, the Trustees and Members are working with the current Chief Executive to increase the capacity and leadership of the Trust. A new role of Deputy CEO has been created, which will support the CEO in leading ongoing development and growth. As well as playing a central role in providing oversight to the member Academies of the Trust, the appointee will lead financial planning and organisation, governance and compliance/reporting activities.
Ideal candidates may have a background either in education or broader public services. A strong track record of leading change and development, with experience of core operational functions (finance, governance, general management) is key. There is considerable flexibility as to how the role may be structured, and it is likely to be around a three day per week commitment. It may therefore be particularly attractive to someone who has enjoyed a distinguished executive career, and who may be looking to structure their day to day lives differently. The ability to travel easily to the Academies, and to understand the relationship between the Trust and its community, are key.
