A multi-academy trust in west Norfolk is looking to hire a director of standards at its two high schools.
Eastern Multi-Academy Trust (EMAT) runs 12 primary and two secondary schools in the west of the county.
The new role, director of secondary education, would oversee its King Edward VII Academy and King’s Lynn Academy.
The candidate would start in September and would be paid £95,000, the advert says, with experience as an Ofsted inspector described as “advantageous”.
EMAT was formed in May last year, after its original sponsor, the College of West Anglia, stepped back from the then-called College of West Anglia Academy Trust.
King’s Lynn Academy is rated as inadequate and classed as one of the county’s three coasting schools, while King Edward VII Academy is graded requires improvement.
The advert says: “Our family of academies helps us fulfil our desire of establishing a vibrant education system that enthuses young people and supports economic development of the region, raising standards throughout and aiding transition through the system.”
