Academy Ambassadors provides a free, bespoke recruitment service to multi-academy trusts looking to strengthen their board. The service is tailored and takes a minimum 6-8 weeks.

SATs and small MATS with no growth plans should use Inspiring Governance, which provides ‘self-service’ web-based board recruitment. Please alert the RSC office and Academy Ambassadors to help us prioritise if your need is pressing.

At busy times there may be some delay and your adviser will inform you of likely timescale. We may have to prioritise based on need in the Regional Schools Commissioner (RSC) regions of South East and South London, North West London & South Central and East of England & North East London.

Please note this form is best completed in a single sitting. It cannot be saved. This form will ask questions about your trust including size and schools, future plans, role description and key competencies you will be recruiting. We can provide a list of the questions asked in this form to help you to complete the trust specification form efficiently. Please click PDF iconhere to see a copy of these questions.
