London Waldorf School is a family of loving educators, students and families.
Join our dynamic team of teachers and staff by applying for a position below:
Volunteer Trustee of the Board - Community Representative
London Waldorf School is seeking a dynamic individual to join our Board of Trustees who has proven experience in fundraising, fund development, mobilizing broader communities and/or social entrepreneurship and an interest in education governance and alternative education models.
London Waldorf School is a vibrant learning community where education, based on a deep understanding of the developing child, integrates the intellectual with the artistic, the practical with the beautiful – fostering the ability to engage more fully in the world.
The Board of Trustees is ultimately responsible for the effective governance of the school and works strategically to foster its legal and financial health. The role of the Board extends to creating an environment conducive to recruiting and retaining a strong faculty complement to serve the children in their care. Because Waldorf schools have a strong social mission, the Board also works to identify ways of growing the school such that a Waldorf education is accessible to all those who value it. Ideally, Trustees also bring a willingness to develop a greater understanding of the principles of Waldorf education, and a specific area of expertise such as strategic planning, legal knowledge, or financial planning.
The Board meets on the third Tuesday of each month for approximately 3 hours in the evening. The successful candidate will be expected to be able to devote an additional 1-3 hours per month to school initiatives with some months requiring a heavier commitment than others.
London Waldorf School has an established Board Member onboarding process where you will have the opportunity to work with other Board Members, Faculty Executive, and Staff to transition into the role and support our advancement.
· Creative, flexible person with initiative.
· Fundraising, advancement and community outreach experience.
· A willingness and proven ability to work within a community environment.
· Previous experience in a Waldorf/Steiner school or knowledge of Waldorf education is an asset.
