The Seckford Foundation is one of Suffolk's oldest charities, endowed by Thomas Seckford in 1587. Our mission is to promote and support the care and education of the young and elderly in and around Woodbridge and the rural communities in the County of Suffolk. We aim to achieve our mission through our work at the Seckford Almshouses, Seckford Springboard, Woodbridge School and the Seckford Education Trust, a multi academy trust currently comprising three secondary schools and two junior schools.

The foundation is controlled by a board of trustees, who delegate responsibility for the day-to-day activities to a series of committees comprising trustees, co-opted members and executives. The foundation has circa. 650 employees, over 2,200 beneficiaries and an annual turnover of £23million.

We are currently looking for new trustees and committee members who must be enthusiastic advocates for all the foundation's activities and be comfortable working on strategy and planning.

Whilst applications are welcome from all, we are particularly interested in recruiting those with backgrounds and experience in Higher and Further Education, Secondary Education in the state or independent sectors and Social Care.

If you are interested in working with a charity to support and strengthen the communities in which those we support live, then please contact Graham Watson, Director at the Seckford Foundation via his PA, Verity Sharratt on (01394) 615106.

The Seckford Foundation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and successful candidates will be subject to an enhanced check from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
