The Trust currently has staff vacancies on the Trust's Council of Governors for the following staff groups:

This is an excellent opportunity to understand a different side of the Trust and to engage with the Board and other senior staff on the issues we all face. This would be ideal for anyone who wants to represent their colleagues' views or who is looking to develop their career as being a governor can help broaden their knowledge of the Trust.
