The organisation

ImpactEd is an award-winning social enterprise that exists to help evaluate, understand and improve impact in education. In our education system, we invest huge amounts of time, money and energy in different programmes and interventions to improve outcomes for pupils. Yet far too often, we don't know what is working - and what isn't.

We exist to address this evaluation deficit, helping schools and those working with them to better understand what is working to make a difference to the lives of young people. We do this through a combination of hands-on partnership, training and consultancy, and our digital platform which makes monitoring and evaluation quicker, easier and more effective. We work with both schools and other education organisations such as charities, universities and education technology companies.

The opportunity

Having grown over the last three years to now support over 500 schools we are looking for new non-executive directors to join our Board to help shape the next phase of our strategy.

This role is an opportunity to join our board to support us in solving problems for the organisation, promoting its work and acting as a critical friend. Our NEDs will hold a mirror up to our decision making, people and processes to ensure they progress the strategy and mission of the organisation. We are looking for NEDs who would be motivated by this mixture of advisory input combined with occasional hands-on work on key organisational priorities.

In return, we will compensate you for your contribution and provide a supportive environment for you to contribute to the strategic direction of a rapidly growing social enterprise.

About You

We are interested in applications from both those who would be able to make general strategic and governance contributions, and from those with experience in one or more specialist areas including:

UK School Sector

People Strategy and EDI

Technology and Product Development

Chairing and Governance

We are open to hearing from all applicants: if you feel you could contribute to the strategic direction of our organisation but your experience does not fall neatly into one of these categories, we would like to hear from you anyway.

We have committed to embedding Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in our work and are especially interested in hearing from candidates with understanding and skills in this area, with the view to acting as a Board sponsor of our EDI strategy.

Why Us?

Having recently launched a new strategy which commits to achieving systemic impact through equipping our partners to understand their own impact and helping our employees direct our trajectory, the organisation is at an exciting stage of development for the right candidate to guide our future direction.

We will offer learning and development opportunities as part of this role as well as flexibility around individual circumstances to ensure this role fits alongside other responsibilities you may have.

The application deadline is 5th December at 12pm. Please note that we will review applications regularly as they come in, so early applications are strongly encouraged.
