Activate Learning

Governor (Trustee)

Activate Learning is a forward-thinking and progressive education group; it is currently one of the largest college groups in the UK in addition to having an international arm in Saudi Arabia. They have experienced a period of considerable growth and have decided to strengthen its Board by appointing two Governors (Trustees) who had experience in apprenticeships as well as legal and compliance expertise. The successful candidates would play a key role in supporting the Group as it looks to position itself as a world-leading education provider.

(Successful candidate)
"Super easy to use, a wide range of roles, and a friendly team of recruiters - Nurole is different to any other recruitment firm I’ve come across and a much needed addition to the industry. I like their automatic updates on new roles and opportunities – it’s a much more transparent and fair approach than normal recruiters. I’m sure this helps attracts people who wouldn’t normally think of applying for board roles."
