Effective search

James Weatherill, Non-executive Director
Langley Park Learning Trust

"I wish private sector search firms were this effective! Sarah (Regional Adviser) took the time and probed intelligently to understand what really motivated me about joining a trust, as well as how I could add value through my skills. We zeroed in on a trust that fitted my values and skillset surprisingly fast, and it was an excellent fit from the outset. I'd thoroughly recommend you apply, the process was an absolute pleasure."

Getting the top people quickly and efficiently

Putting leadership skills to work for the wider community

Christine Wilson, Non-executive Director
Potential in Everyone Academy Trust

"I was delighted to find the Academy Ambassadors website, as I had been keen for some time to put my legal and leadership skills to work for the benefit of the wider community. I am now a non-executive director of an academy trust and a member of the trust's finance and staffing committee. I have met interesting and dedicated people in the process - what unites us all, from all our different backgrounds, is a commitment to ensure great outcomes for children. Academy Ambassadors managed the process very effectively, putting me in touch with a trust who was seeking a board member with my skill set".
