Would you like to make a difference in your community? Volunteer as a trustee.

We are looking for people with new ideas and a fresh perspective to join our committed and friendly board.

Our trustees are valued members of our team at Diverse Academies Trust – they bring a wealth of experience, skills and knowledge to drive forward our vision to inspire, raise aspirations and create brighter tomorrows for children and young people.

You don’t need to have worked at a board level before. You’ll be joining a supportive and welcoming team, with training provided.

What does a trustee do in a multi-academy trust?

Trustees actively make a difference in our local communities by contributing to the success of our academies and the lives of the students we serve. Their role is vital to ensuring trusts have clarity of strategic direction, holding leaders to account, and connecting and engaging with a wide range of stakeholders.

What our current trustees have to say about volunteering

‘Whether you’re looking for a board role to help develop your leadership skills, or looking to use skills you have already acquired during your career, becoming a trustee of Diverse Academies is a great opportunity to contribute to the vital task of improving chances in life for young people.’ David Schwarz, Trustee

‘Volunteering in the education sector – where children are at the core – gives me hope. If we, as a Trust board working with our senior leaders, make a little progress each day, it adds up to big results. For me, the ‘big result’ is the vision of every child been given the opportunity to flourish within the educational environment.’ Jackie Mordue, Trustee
