Contract type: Full Time
Salary: Competitive salary + benefits
Contract term: Permanent

Regional Director: North

Competitive salary + benefits

For nearly 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. 

Now one of the largest not-for-profit multi-academy trusts in England, with 39 academies, our strategic goal is to become one of the nation’s highest-performing MATs by 2021. 

Our national network is served by an exceptionally high-performing team of four Regional Directors, and promotion within the Trust to a national position now means that we can offer an opportunity for this exciting, visible and rewarding role in the North 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 nine 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 nearly 7,000 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, Tuesday 23 April.
