Become an Ambition Institute trustee


Help us become the team we need to be.

Charity boards are too often less diverse than the communities they serve. With 81% of charities recruiting trustees by personal recommendation or word-of-mouth, lack of diversity can be a persistent problem.

We are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive organisation, and diversifying our board is part of this goal. We are looking for at least two motivated and talented individuals to join our Board of Trustees and sit on either our Education and Impact Committee or our People Committee.

Chair's Welcome

Rebecca Boomer-Clark

Chair of the Ambition Institute Board of Trustees

Thank you for your interest in joining our Board of Trustees. Ambition Institute’s vision is an education system where every child can thrive, no matter what their background. Our mission is to help educators serving children from disadvantaged backgrounds to keep getting better.

This work has only become more important as we emerge from a period of extended disruption due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This disruption has been felt most acutely by children from disadvantaged backgrounds.

It is an exciting and rewarding time to join Ambition Institute. We are respected as one of the sector’s biggest providers of high-quality professional development and have an exciting future ahead of us.

We are looking for at least two motivated and talented individuals to join our Board of Trustees and contribute to either our Education and Impact Committee or our People Committee.

We are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive organisation at all levels, including our Board. We would be particularly interested to receive applications from people in currently underrepresented groups, including black and minority ethnic candidates. We also welcome applications from people at all career stages and, as a national organisation, from any geographical location within England.

If you are inspired by our work and think you could help us to achieve our vision and mission, then we would very much welcome an application from you.
