Chief Executive of Physics Partners (part time)
Salary: £25,000 - £30,000 for 3 days per week or equivalent 0.6 FTE (=£42k - £50k FTE)
Closing Date: 21/12/2018
From a small base, Physics Partners now supports 170 schools and thousands of pupils, using their own trainers and working alongside the Institute of Physics and a network of partnerships. They are now looking for a strategic and energetic Chief Executive to mastermind the next stage of development. Knowledge of physics is desirable but not essential: the key requirements are the intellectual and personal skills to run a successful and expanding charity, together with a strong commitment to the aims of Physics Partners and the ability to form strong networking relationships with other organisations active in the sector. Fund-raising experience would be an advantage.
You will be supported by a network of regional Ambassadors and have administrative and website support. Location is flexible, including the possibility of working from home. Trustee meetings are usually held in London.
Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI)
Four Directors of the Board
Salary: Not Remunerated
Closing Date: 06/12/2018
The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) is embarking on an exciting new stage in its development.
A wide-ranging governance review has recently been completed and we are moving from a primarily representative governance structure to a fully independent skills-based Board. Under the leadership of our new Chief Executive and the Chief Inspector, we are ambitious to play a more prominent and visible role within the rapidly-changing independent education sector, nationally and internationally. Working as part of a diverse, high-calibre Board, our new Directors will help shape the development of ISI’s new strategy, seeking to increase impact, strengthen partnerships with stakeholders and extend our influence with government.
Successful candidates will be individuals who are passionate about the importance of education, both to the children in our schools and to wider society. We are looking for individuals who can readily navigate the multi-faceted nature of the ISI and are excited about the opportunities available as part of a new Board. Our new Directors will feel a strong resonance with the ISI’s vision and values, and our commitment to diversity and inclusion at all levels. We wish to encourage applications that will ensure that we benefit from diversity in terms of background, experience and perspective.
