Trustee with Finance Specialism





Trustee Vacancy - Finance Specialism

The Cornerstone Academy Trust in East Devon is a forward-looking, agile multi academy trust where like-minded schools can collaborate and develop in a local, supportive learning environment with distinctive, extended curriculum opportunities. Broadclyst Community Primary School (Ofsted Outstanding), which became one of the first Academies in the UK in 2010, was the first school in the Trust, and the Trust then opened Westclyst Community Primary School in September 2016. Westclyst, whilst temporarily based on the BCPS site, achieved an Ofsted Outstanding grading on its initial inspection in 2019 and the school has recently moved to its new permanent position in the heart of Westclyst, occupying a state-of-the-art building. The Trust expanded further in January 2019 when Yeo Valley Primary School in Barnstaple joined the MAT as part of a sponsorship agreement and will be opening another Primary School in Monkerton just outside of Exeter in 2020. The Trust is also a Teaching School, as well as being a Science Learning Partnership and an English Hub, providing conferences and learning opportunities for its own staff as well as other schools in the local area and beyond.
The Role
We are looking for a person/people to work with us who share our ethos and commitment to excellence. The applicant should have a current recognised accountancy qualification (ACCA, CIMA, CIPFA etc). Experience of working in the education sector is not essential but would be beneficial. Finance meetings are held on a Monday night at Broadclyst School from 5-8pm once a month and the Full Trust Board normally meets on the second Tuesday of the month from 7pm. The commitment would be for around 6 hours per month of meetings with preparation time beforehand. The applicant would need to have a full DBS check. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a multi-award-winning team that serves to provide an education standard “a cut-above” the rest.
The Application

Applicants should email a copy of their CV and a short paragraph detailing why they would be suitable for the role to The Chair of Governors, Vice-Chair and Chair designate to the following addresses. Please also email the below for any additional information or questions.

Required as soon as possible is a School Minibus Driver to be employed on a part time/casual basis. The role will include transporting pupils and staff on educational visits or sporting fixtures and other similar activities. You will be required to drive one of the school's four 17-seater minibuses or our 7-seater car.

We operate bus runs to and from the Pinhoe, Westclyst and Bradninch areas early in the morning (commencing about 7:30am) and at the end of the school day.
