Search for Ian Davenport's Successor

01/10/19

Royal SpringBoard is the UK’s leading charity providing life-transforming opportunities on full bursaries in over 100 state and independent boarding schools for children from disadvantaged or vulnerable backgrounds. 

We now seek an exceptional leader to succeed Ian Davenport who will step down in May 2020 after seven years of outstanding service. His successor will inherit a thriving organisation with significant ambition for its future, with plans for 1,000 beneficiaries in schools by 2025 and several other strategic opportunities to expand and deepen its impact.

If you are interested in applying for the role of Chief Executive, please contact Perrett Laver at https://candidates.perrettlaver.com/vacancies/1572/chief_executive/
