Governance Vacancies

From time to time we have vacancies for enthusiastic and committed individuals to join our Trust Board of Directors or our Local Governing Committees for each school

All roles are voluntary, although individuals are entitled to claim expenses in line with the trust’s Director and Local Governor Expenses Policy.

Videos of some of our trustees and local governing committee members talking about their experiences of governing within NEAT on our Youtube channel.

Everyone on Board

We support Inspiring Governance’s ‘Everyone on Board’ campaign.

Watch the Everyone on Board video on their Youtube channel to hear what inspired other governance volunteers to get on board and the benefits they get from their role.

The campaign highlights that people of colour and young people are often underrepresented as governors compared with our pupil populations.  We aim to ensure diverse voices are heard and contribute to decision-making in our trust so why not get on board with us as a governance volunteer?
