Trustees Vacancies

Education Support has vacancies for Trustees, and we particularly seek individuals with expertise in any of these four areas:

  • Clinical support
  • Finance
  • Income generation
  • Teaching or leadership experience in schools, colleges or universities

The Board of Trustees wish to attract diverse candidates, with a wide range of skills and experience, to join the existing, experienced Board.

We are looking for breadth and depth of expertise and a commitment to the Charity’s mission, for the assurance of meeting the charitable objects.

The Board wish to increase diversity within its governance and we encourage candidates from all sections of society to apply for these roles. In particular, we warmly welcome the applications of people from ethnic minority communities.

In light of our considerable programme delivery funded by the Welsh government we also welcome applications for candidates from Wales.
