A fantastic opportunity has arisen to join the Board of Trustees at School-Home Support (SHS) at an exciting time as we continue to grow our reach nationally. We are an innovative charity committed to breaking down the barriers that prevent disadvantaged children from thriving in education, by tackling the underlying issues affecting a child’s learning. We work with families, schools, local services, and corporate partners to break intergenerational cycles of poverty and make a real, positive difference to vulnerable children across the UK.
Commitment: half day per month
SHS is looking to welcome new trustees to our talented team and strengthen our innovative organisation at governance level. We are seeking dynamic, engaged individuals who demonstrate leadership abilities and, above all, are passionate about seeing children reach their full potential. We are ambitious about expanding the national reach of SHS and so trustees with experience and skill in scaling digital operations, governance and public affairs, partnership working, marketing, or HR/Talent management are highly desirable.
SHS values equality and diversity. Our staff and the people supported by SHS are from very diverse communities and we want our Board to reflect this. As we expand to new communities across the UK, we are also keen to include regional diversity on the Board.
Our Board of Trustees meet four times a year, usually at the central office in Stratford, London.
For more information, please see the Trustee Application Pack on our website which includes an overview of SHS, the role description and person specification, and a link to our diversity monitoring form.
To apply, please send your CV and a cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org
