Board Recruitment Period - February and March 2018

Board recruitment was paused in February/March 2018 while the Department for Education made funding decisions. Academy Ambassadors has now been given funding security to provide board recruitment to multi-academy trusts across the country for at least the next two years.

Academy Ambassadors will shortly launch multi-academy trust board recruitment for Spring/Summer 2018 in a number of regions.Our priority will be to continue helping the boards of multi-academy trusts recruit the highest calibre business professionals, particularly those trusts in England’s most disadvantaged areas, doing what we can to provide the next generation with the best possible future.
