Governor Vacancy (voluntary)

Governor – HR Management

The Tiffin Girls’ School, a selective girls’ grammar school with 1,161 students on roll, is consistently one of the most successful state schools in the country. It is full of opportunity, creativity and challenge, and all aspects of student progress and achievement are celebrated. The Tiffin Girls’ School is an Academy and the Members of the Academy Trust are seeking to appoint a Governor, who is in, or has held, a senior position in the private or public sector and has good knowledge and experience of HR management / employment law and General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). They should be a confident leader and have a strong commitment to selective girls’ education and its role in enhancing social mobility and diversity. In common with many Governing Boards (GB) in schools and across the wider charity sector, The Tiffin Girls’ School’s GB currently lacks diversity. We recognise that a more diverse range of Governors can help demonstrate that the GB is fair and open in all its dealings, as well as increasing stakeholders’ confidence. It can also help strengthen the GB’s decision-making by considering issues from a wider range of perspectives. We would therefore particularly welcome candidates from black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) communities. To apply, please complete and return the application form (governor) below, together with your CV, to clerk@tiffingirls.org         
Closing date:  10.00am Monday 3 June
