Do you want to help make a difference by sharing your expertise?
Are you looking for a new challenge?

The Greenwood Academies Trust’s Board is always seeking to appoint new Trustees to ensure we have the capacity and skills to oversee the next phase of our work.

Ideally you should have a passion in supporting the development of children and young people and ensuring that every child within our academies can be the best they can be.

We expect that candidates will bring a range of skills and experience to the Trust. In particular we are looking for individuals who would benefit our Trust in a number of key areas including: 

  • Primary or Secondary education
  • Governance / company secretarial
  • IT
  • Estates
  • Human Resources
  • Health and Safety

Trustees are required to attend four formal Trust Board meetings a year plus meetings for any Sub-Committees which you may sit on (this will be determined by your experience). Board meetings are held on week days in Nottingham.

You will also be encouraged to participate in the life of the organisation between board meetings, attending Trust-wide events and acting in an ambassadorial role for the Trust as required.

The roles are unpaid voluntary positions. Reasonable expenses are paid. Positions are normally for a term of four years (term may be renewed).

If you are interested, please submit a brief email stating why you wish to be considered for the role, together with your CV, to

Prospective Trustees who best meet our requirements will be invited to speak to some of our existing board members.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and we expect all staff to share this commitment and undergo appropriate checks, therefore, all posts within the Trust are subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check. The Trust welcomes applications from all, irrespective of gender, marital status, disability, race, age or sexual orientation.
