About the Role

Positions: Nationwide for Local Governors/Cluster Board Non-Executive Representatives/Trustees

We have opportunities across all tiers of governance in different locations across the country.

If you wish to share your expertise, broaden your skills and knowledge and become part of the education community all whilst working to improve the outcomes for children we would love to hear from you.

We are not looking for particular skill sets or background but rather volunteers with time and enthusiasm, interest in education and a willingness to support and challenge our school/Trust leadership to drive school improvement.

If you would like to know more about the governance vacancies that we have, either for now or for in the future, please email governance@reach2.org and one of the team will be in touch to arrange an initial conversation.

REAch2 is continuously working towards improving the diversity of the Trust, and the experience for our staff from diverse backgrounds. We are clear that the value of greater diversity to the Trust lies in the way we will value difference when we work together towards richer solutions. 

We are keen to hear from all candidates with the appropriate experience who feel they can make a real contribution to the Trust. If you can bring a fresh perspective to the challenges we face whether through your background as someone from an ethnic minority or you live with a disability (visible or not), are open about your faith, religion or belief or about being LGBTQ+, your application will receive a warm welcome. As will applications from all suitable candidates.

REAch2 is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all adults working in or with our schools to share this commitment.

Enclosed in our application pack is a copy of our safer recruitment policy, which outlines the steps we take to ensure that we attract the most suitable, high calibre candidates, and to help deter, reject or identify people who might abuse children or are otherwise unsuited to working with them.

We encourage all potential candidates to read this policy carefully in order to fully understand what is expected of you in our recruitment process. All roles will be assessed for the appropriate level of DBS check, which will include a Children’s Barred List check if the role meets the criteria for regulated activity.
