Are you a passionate and committed educational leader looking for an exciting new challenge?

The role is also about ensuring that we always remain focused on our vision and ethos and fulfilling our responsibilities to regulators, to our staff and to our communities. This means that the focus is wider than school improvement – although this is a central element – but it also embraces shared accountability for the effective running of the organisation as a national employer, as a public body and as key contributor to local community transformation.

As Regional Director you will join the National Education team and be line managed by a National Director who will work with you and support you in your role. We are all committed to ensuring there is ‘Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community’.

Leadership Values

As Regional Director you will secure progress, develop, share and embed systems leadership across a range of academies and lead improvement in a dynamic, fast paced and successful organisation; one that is committed to inclusion, equality, relationships, hope and perseverance. This is an outward facing, high-profile role within our academies and the communities they serve. You will represent Oasis at a regional level and promote the Oasis ethos that makes us unique.

Career Development

We are an organisation that is wholeheartedly committed to developing our employees through internal and external training courses and offering opportunities for career progression within the family.  To be effective in this role you will need to be passionate, driven and committed with demonstrable experience of securing rapid and sustained improvement and taking schools to Good or Outstanding throughout the development of your career to date.
