Job description

The Mead Educational Trust (TMET) is a growing partnership of primary and secondary schools situated in the East Midlands. As an organisation, we exist to improve the life chances of children and young people.

We are incredibly proud of our team and the direct impact they have on creating transformative opportunities for our learning community. We are a supportive, collaborative and developmental trust - we invest in our team and are proud of their knowledge, commitment and expertise.

As we have grown, our guiding principles have ensured people remain at the heart of all we do. As we enter a new phase of organisational growth, we have created the new role of Director of People & Organisational Development to drive this agenda further forward.

If you enjoy a challenge, are driven by moral purpose and want to make a significant difference to the lives of thousands of children and young people across the region, then this is an opportunity that can’t be missed. You will be working with a highly effective team of likeminded leaders and will undoubtedly play a pivotal role in the future direction of our trust. Reporting directly to the CEO and working as part of the Trust Executive Team, your focus will blend both operational and strategic elements; ensuring systems and processes are of the highest quality as well as shaping our people and OD agenda.

To be successful, you’ll need exceptional experience of human resource leadership (with a strong understanding of HR legislation), coupled with a proven ability to shape dynamic, creative and sector leading developmental strategies. In return, we can offer you unparalleled support within a successful, supportive and growing MAT.

You’ll be rewarded with a highly competitive salary, but most importantly, the opportunity to create lasting change for young people in a fast-paced and exciting environment.
