Chairman: Martin Kelly
Chief Executive Officer
Northern Star is a growing multi-academy trust in the north of England comprising four good or outstanding schools, two secondary and two primary with other schools expected to join shortly. Our ambition is to develop further as a cross-phase MAT, providing an excellent education whilst celebrating the individual personality and locality of each school and to work to improve the educational standards of underperforming schools in North and West Yorkshire.
Owing to the retirement this summer of the current post holder, we are seeking a forward thinking CEO to build on our success, grow the trust and secure high quality education and learning experiences for all our children, young people and staff.
You will work with the board of directors to deliver the trust´s vision of excellent learning and outcomes achieved through strong leadership, professional collaboration and innovation in teaching and learning. You´ll be expected to work across the trust and with our partner teaching school alliance, acting as an ambassador, inspiring and empowering others and developing relationships that lead to growth. The role will suit a senior leader who likes to have a balance of being hands on, shaping and setting the direction, but also spending time in each school working closely with the head teacher and leadership team. Educated to at least degree level, you´ll be bringing senior leadership experience from a large, complex company or organisation, possibly as an executive or system leader from a trust or federation.
For an informal, confidential discussion about the post, please contact the current CEO, Andrew Bayston, on 07415 461281 or email email@example.com
Closing date: 12 noon, Friday 28 April 2017
Interviews to be held on Wednesday 17 and Thursday 18 May 2017
The trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. This post is subject to an enhanced DBS clearance.

Subject Director: English (Secondary) NSAT
Required for September 2017
Salary: Range L10 – L15
Northern Star Academies Trust (NSAT) seeks applications from outstanding applicants with integrity, imagination, and energy for this highly rewarding role.
We are seeking an outstanding teaching practitioner and leader to lead the development of English teaching and outcomes across our Trust. This post is an excellent opportunity for English specialists from the secondary sector who want to extend their experience beyond that of a Learning Director
or Subject Head of Department. If you have been an outstanding Subject Leader/Head of Department/Leading practitioner in a secondary school this post would enable you to maintain close links with classroom practice whilst developing your own leadership potential across our family of schools (Primary and Secondary).
NSAT is committed to providing high quality professional development and career opportunities for all staff. We seek to recruit the very best staff and to ensure that they are fully supported throughout their career.
This role will require the post holder to work across our schools and work closely with English subject leaders and will require excellent interpersonal skills as well as outstanding subject knowledge and experience. This is a unique role and a real opportunity to join the central trust team under the direct leadership of the Director for School Improvement. The core purpose of the role will be to raise achievement in English and to help shape and improve the leadership of English across the Trust. It is desirable for the successful candidate to have examiner experience, knowledge and understanding of the Ofsted inspection process, and be able to take a strategic lead on a day-to-day basis to respond to the particular needs and context which may range from leading at a strategic level or running a department.
You will be joining a very ambitious and forward thinking organisation, so we are seeking outstanding candidates who can realise the highest possible quality of provision to support our educational vision, robust leadership, and effective support to colleagues, to enable the organisation to achieve the best possible outcomes for children and young people.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We expect all staff to share this commitment and to undergo appropriate checks, including enhanced DBS checks and a willingness to demonstrate commitment to the values and behaviours expected at NSAT.
