vacancies for Members, Trustees and Local Governors

Wildern Academy Trust has vacancies for Members, Trustees and Local Governors for Boorley Park primary school. Over the next few months the Trust will also be seeking Local Governors to form the Local Governing Body (LGB) for Deer Park.

Members are responsible for appointing Trustees and ensuring that the Trust Board adhere to their statutory requirements. It is a less time consuming role than a Trustee but still requires essential action to ensure compliance.

The skill specifically needed to fulfil the Trustee vacancies is finance.

To fulfil the vacancies on the LGBs a knowledge of education would be an advantage. Above all a commitment and willingness to support the Trust as it expands is essential.
