Calling former Ark students: Join Ark’s Board and help shape the future

Ark is advertising an opportunity for a member of Ark’s alumni community to join its Board of Trustees.

With its 39 schools, Ark is committed to improving the way it engages with students and the wider communities they serve.

Liz Dawson, Ark’s Director of Governance, says, “We’re looking for someone who will help bring a student voice to the Board’s discussions and decision-making and offer a unique and invaluable perspective to the wide range of issues we deal with.”

Ark has said it will support the appointment with close working and a trustee mentor to ensure the new trustee handles the responsibilities of the role.

Those interested and eligible for the role are asked to send a 300-600 word statement to Liz Dawson at describing why they are interested in the role, what they have done since leaving school and why they believe they could make a valuable contribution to Ark’s work as a trustee.

Ark will hold initial interviews on a rolling basis so expressions of interest should be submitted as soon as possible but no later than 31st August. Interested alumni can request an informal chat about the role before applying by dropping Liz a line over email.
