Objectives

Academy Ambassadors provides a free, bespoke service matching business leaders and professionals with multi-academy trusts looking to strengthen their boards. 

Since Academy Ambassadors was established in 2013 we have matched over 800 non-executive directors to multi-academy trust boards and recruited a further 500+ potential non-executives.

Academy Ambassadors recruits high-calibre business professionals, by:

  • Recruiting to a ‘pool’ of potential non-executive directors via personal referrals; our corporate partners; holding business-breakfasts and networking events and social media.
  • Advertising specific posts on web-based networks and headhunting via personal and business networks.

A diverse range of board-level skills is required to oversee the complexity of multi-academy trust governance such as HR, risk, audit, finance, marketing/branding, property/real estate.

Activities

Academy Ambassadors provides a free, bespoke service matching business people and professionals with multi-academy trusts looking to strengthen their boards.  Since 2013, the not-for-profit programme funded by the Department for Education has introduced over 700 business people and professionals to trust boards.
