The Edge Foundation – Trustees

Trustees - The Edge Foundation

Business / Organisation Name: The Edge Foundation
Business / Organisation Sector: Not-for-Profit
Business / Organisation Website: https://bit.ly/3aoPEnR
Business / Organisation Type: School, College or University
Role Title: Trustee
Remuneration: Expenses only

Role Description

The Edge Foundation, a champion of relevant practical and vocational education, is seeking to appoint Trustees to its Board who will play a key role in overseeing the strategic direction of the charity and ensure all young people have the education that enables them to contribute to a changing world.

About the Role

The Edge Foundation is an independent and politically impartial foundation, working to inspire the education system to give all young people across the UK the knowledge, skills and behaviours they need to flourish in their future life and work.

We work in collaboration with non-governmental organisations, government departments, education providers and academic establishments, among many other stakeholders, and gather evidence through research, trials and projects.

We use this evidence to both influence practice on the ground and lead the debate around future local and national policy.

Our Executive Team, led by our CEO – Alice Barnard, is supported by a Board of Trustees, which is chaired by Neil Bates and made up of independent Trustees who bring relevant expertise from a range of sectors. Together, the Trustees ensure that the organisation is managed through effective governance and the Executive receives supportive challenge around strategic decisions that will impact those who benefit from the Edge Foundation itself and its work.

At present, the Edge Foundation’s Board of Trustees comprises nine members, including the Chair and Vice-Chair. The Board works closely with and supports Alice and senior staff in the effective and efficient operation of the organisation. Some Trustees also serve on one of three committees which, alongside the Board itself, make up the Edge Foundation’s overarching governance structure: the Nominations and Remuneration Committee; the Finance, Risk & Audit Committee; and the Projects & Delivery Committee.

The Board meets four times per year in London, and all Trustees are expected to attend these meetings either in person or remotely. Alongside these regular meetings, Trustees also serve an ambassadorial role for the Edge Foundation and are encouraged to act as speakers as well as undertake outreach work related to the organisation’s charitable aims.

In addition to ensuring that the Edge Foundation is legally compliant and uses its resources sustainably and in line with its charitable aims, among other responsibilities, Trustees also serve an important role in upholding the reputation and values of Edge. Trustees must respect the independence of the organisation, and the power this brings to make a significant impact on the education system for young people across the UK.

Further to their role on the Board, Trustees have the opportunity to become more closely involved with the work of the Edge Foundation, which can include visiting particular projects or stakeholders to gain insight into their on-the-ground activities.

For example, one current member of the Board has also been involved with the Edge Hotel School, which offers unique, industry-engaged higher education degree courses in events and hospitality management.

Another Trustee supports researchers with expertise where needed and requested, which provides insight to contribute to Board discussions. Taking the time to network, both with fellow Trustees and the members of the Edge Foundation staff (around 21 people including our team and extended team), is also encouraged. Therefore, the Edge Foundation’s Trustees are truly woven into the fabric of the organisation and can be a real part of the impact that the organisation seeks to make in Education.

Who we are looking for

With a new strategy in place and a host of innovative projects currently in action and in the pipeline, the Edge Foundation is keen to diversify our Board to

  • reflect the broad communities served across the UK by the education sector;
  • develop the Board’s expertise in key areas related to the business of the organisation, including post-16 and Higher Education; and
  • engage passionate and committed professionals and those with lived experience to support the innovative and impactful work of Edge.

Candidates should be able to demonstrate a strong commitment to the Edge Foundation’s vision of ‘Making Education Relevant’; a keen understanding or insight of the UK education landscape (particularly technical, professional and vocational education) from their own sector or industry experience; and an ability to think strategically, challenge constructively, and work collaboratively as part of a collective board. It is essential that a diverse skill set is represented amongst the Board of Trustees, and that the Board work as a team.

Edge seeks Trustees who will bring a connected, empathetic, engaged, fair and inclusive approach to the role, and who can communicate effectively when expressing their own views and also when listening to others. Candidates should be able to exercise good judgment in the face of challenging situations and maintain confidentiality.

Ideally, we are seeking candidates who bring a knowledge and/or experience of education at school, further and/or higher education levels combined with a knowledge and experience of education and skills policy from a local, regional or national level.

In addition, we are keen to hear from candidates who have an appreciation for the ethos of charitable organisations and doing social good as well as recent experience or an understanding of charity administration, finances and investment. An understanding of the legal obligations of trusteeship would also be welcome.

If you are keen to make a difference as a Trustee within an organisation that cares about having a positive impact on education in the UK, this opportunity is an excellent one to consider.

Thirteen Group – Chair

Chair - Thirteen Group

Employer: Thirteen Group
Location: Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire
Salary: Remunerated
Closing date: 28 Oct 2021

As a charitable not-for-profit housing association, Thirteen exists to provide housing and support services across the North East of England and Yorkshire. We are here for anyone who needs a home and maybe a helping hand too. We work to improve the fabric of places where our customer live.

Today, we own over 34,000 properties and manage over 35,000 homes. Our 1,600 colleagues provide services for more than 72,000 customers – but we’re more than just a landlord. We are all about providing homes, support and opportunities to grow, and our vision is of a caring landlord and housing developer, which recognises everyone as an individual. We go beyond bricks and mortar, and our range of extra services means we can give people a helping hand specifically tailored to them if they need it.

Strong and improving operational performance and a culture of inclusivity with customers and colleagues means that our range of partnerships and impact is increasing but there is always more to do. Over the next five years we will invest over £1billion to improve our services, tenants’ homes and their neighbourhoods, as well as delivering new affordable homes.

It is against this background, and in this time of change and opportunity, that we are looking for a new Group Chair, as George Garlick prepares to step down after 6 years of outstanding service.

For this role we would welcome interest from people who have held leadership roles in large and complex organisations in any sector, and who have sufficiently substantial non-executive experience to land with confidence as our Group Chair.

Most importantly, we are looking or a Chair who connects with our values and those of the social housing sector, and who strongly believes in the role we play in supporting communities and individuals to thrive. It will be important that our new Chair brings an understanding of regulated settings (not necessarily housing) and has the commercial and financial acumen to help lead what is a £186m turnover organisation, with assets close to £1bn in value, and range of partnerships across the private and public sectors. Our Chair needs either to know our patch already or be really excited about getting to know it, and spending time across the different parts of our footprint.

The precise remuneration is under review but will be in the region of £20,000. There are generally 5 main board meetings a year held in our offices close to Middlesbrough station, with additional Committee meetings and strategy days, plus webinars and other board events also taking place in typical year. We expect the total time commitment to average around 2 days a month.

At Thirteen, we like to be inclusive, looking at things from different perspectives to drive innovation. We have a clear intention and need to diversify our board over the coming years so we would like to very warmly encourage applications from individuals in under-represented groups, such as young people, women and people from ethnic minority backgrounds, to come forward for a conversation.

Saxton Bampfylde Ltd is acting as an employment agency advisor to the Thirteen Group on this appointment. For further information about the role, including details about how to apply, please visit www.saxbam.com/appointments using reference JATAAB. Alternatively telephone +44 (0)20 7227 0880 (during office hours). Applications should be received by noon on Thursday 28th October 2021.

St Clare Hospice is a highly regarded independent charity providing comprehensive end-of-life healthcare for the West Essex and East Hertfordshire community. Building on the foundations of more than 30 years’ work, we support and care for people with terminal or life-limiting illnesses and their families and carers.

Our core services include an 8-bed in-patient facility, Hospice at Home, and a range of day services, therapies, bereavement support and information for patients and their families. We also run a children’s bereavement service and launched a

Compassionate Neighbours project in early 2018: a volunteer-led programme aimed at reducing social isolation for end-of-life people in their own homes.

We are a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee, receiving around 40% of funding from the NHS. We rely on the generosity of our local community to fund the remaining 60% of our costs. This comes from many people, events, local businesses, trusts, schools, community groups, our shops, our lottery and gifts in Wills.

As we are about to embark on our new 2022 three-year strategy, we are looking for a new Chair of trustees who can support us as we continue to be a leader in the sector and as we deliver our ambitious new strategy. We will build on our strong foundations and success whilst achieving a continued focus on collaboration and partnership with local health, community, and voluntary groups. Part of our new strategy is to continue to build on our success in education and research which will help us maintain our credibility, reputation, and profile as a leading hospice in the UK.

We are looking for a Chair who is aligned with our values and vision that every adult with a life-limiting condition in our communities should have access to palliative care services wherever and whenever they need them. This is a hugely exciting time for our hospice and a rewarding opportunity to lead us through our next strategic phase.

Our ideal candidate is someone who has charity governance experience and who can bring a wealth of knowledge and leadership experience to enhance the performance of our board and has an open and collaborative approach. We are also looking for someone who can be an impactful ambassador for the hospice.

You will bring experience of leadership, governance and be a challenge and support for our executive team and board. We expect the time commitment for the Chair to be circa three days a month.

We are also looking for a Trustee to join our board with senior charity leadership experience particularly in community engagement and/or service development or delivery.

This person will support us as we develop and deepen our relationships, partnerships and collaboration with others in our local communities. We expect the time commitment for the trustee to be up to a day a month. This will include our four main board meetings a year which commence in the evening, membership of one of our sub-committees which meet four times a year for one to two hours, our strategy away day, reading and preparation, and other ad hoc activities.

We are looking for our board members to be aligned to our values; compassion, integrity, respect, excellence and team working.

Business / Organisation Sector: Private
Business / Organisation Website: https://bit.ly/39rz9qL
Business / Organisation Type: Association
Role Title: Governor
Remuneration: Expenses only

Role Description

This is a rare opportunity for two Governors to join the Board of the historic Peter Symonds College in Winchester. The college provides outstanding 16 -19 education across Hampshire. Entrepreneurial in spirit you will bring skills and experience in finance, innovation or the creative arts to further enhance our students’ excellent academic outcomes and engagement in enrichment activities.

Who we are looking for

We are seeking governors who intrinsically value high-quality education and bring strategic leadership skills to support our non-executive governing board and our executive leadership team.

With a sound knowledge of governance you will be confident in contributing to a wide-ranging discussion to evaluate impact and ensure the objectives set out in our 2019-22 strategic plan are achieved.

With ambition to excel further, we will continue to develop exceptional teaching and learning opportunities for our students.

Equally important however is our focus on pastoral care, inclusive approach and additional support for our 70 boarding students.

The governing board encourages a wide-ranging enrichment programme which offers new and inspiring experience for students.

We encourage applications from a diverse range of candidates – in particular those who can demonstrate financial expertise or who possess a creative mindset, perhaps have a background in culture and the arts. In addition you will demonstrate the motivation and capacity to prepare for, and attend, five main board meetings a year at the college and there will be an expectation to join a relevant committee which meet remotely.

We are committed to ensuring that our Board is increasingly reflective of the diverse communities and students the college serves. We therefore strongly encourage people from under-represented groups and backgrounds, including those from Black, Asian and other ethnic minorities, to come forward and help us create a more diverse and inclusive culture.

The Role of the Governor

Governors are voluntary non-executive directors of the college. At Peter Symonds you will join a collegiate board, led by the Chair Amanda Storey to oversee the strategic direction of the college, ensure effective oversight of standards and performance from a quality curriculum offer, and to ensure financial stability and mitigation of risk.

There is an important distinction to be drawn between these responsibilities and that of day-to-day management of the college.

The board establishes and maintains the framework within which the college functions with the Principal and CEO, Sara Russell and executive leaders being accountable for the effective management of the college. Our governors provide support and act as a critical friend to Sara and her team.

The Board is ultimately accountable for the proper use of public funds and will abide by the Nolan Principles of Public Life.
