Trust Board Vacancies

The Olive Tree is a small, yet successful, single academy trust based in Bolton, Greater Manchester. As part of the development our trust we have two vacancies for two trustees to join our trust board in order to support our mission and vision, as follows:

●               Trustee with experience of finance, HR and buildings;

●               Trustee with experience of educational standards, safeguarding and inclusion.

Our mission:

Our trust’s mission is to work in partnership with culturally aligned (likeminded) schools to use an evidence-based approach of innovation and technology that promotes continuous improvement, improves social-mobility, and increases the life chances of our pupils, their families and our staff.

Our vision:

Our Trust’s vision is to develop and grow into a strong family of schools, using the power of collaboration and shared values to develop best practice through a culture of challenge, aspiration, and achievement. Our enduring aspiration is to be the ‘Trust of Choice’, ensuring we offer value for money and maximise our use of available resources at all times to secure the highest personal, professional, and academic outcomes for all of our stakeholders.

Time commitment:

Each of our committees meets 4 times a year and feeds into our full Board meeting – which also meets 4 times a year. The time commitment is approximately 1.5 hours per meeting (or 5-8 hours per month including time to review governance paperwork) and although voluntary in nature, provides trustees with the rewarding opportunity to contribute to the growth and development of a highly successful single academy trust in Bolton, Greater Manchester.

Interested in being a part of our success story?

As with all governance roles, the ideal candidate should be passionate about bringing about positive change to the lives of children whilst adhering to the Nolan principles of public life.
