Trustee Recruitment

The success of our organisation relies upon the personal commitment and active involvement of our Board of Trustees. As a charitable company, the Board of Trustees is the overarching body that takes on the legal and regulatory responsibilities and oversees the governance of the organisation. The Board is chaired by Peter Stonell and consists of 10 trustees with a broad range of professional backgrounds, skills and experience - click here for more details.

Members of the Board are required to have performed at a strategic level and to be employed within one of our member organisations or from an organisation with an interest in helping us to further our charitable aims.

One Awards is committed to ensuring that our appointment process is open, transparent and based on merit and therefore nine of the sixteen seats on the Board are open to nomination through the membership, with the remaining seven seats available for co-option by the Board. The Board currently meets five times a year, with Trustees also attending the AGM. While the role is unremunerated, travel and out of pocket expenses are paid.  We also provide an induction and on-going training and development to support trustees in their role. 

If you are passionate about learning and would like to be involved with One Awards at a strategic level then the Board of Trustees would like to hear from you.

Further information is available from Dawn Rush, Head of Corporate and Financial Services and Company Secretary, One Awards, 23 Manor Way, Belasis Business Park, Billingham, Teesside, TS23 4HN, by email to dawn.rush@oneawards.org.uk or by telephone on 0191 518 6550.

“One Awards' innovative results service has been a fantastic development for universities and allows us to check students' achievement immediately ourselves. This is an excellent service which means that we are able to confirm student places quickly and effectively without having to follow up with providers and students or wait for results to be sent on to us. This is because their certification turnaround time of less than two days allows One Awards to process student results almost as soon as the colleges/providers have provided the final verified results. This really does help us put students at the heart of our confirmation process”.
