Careers at Leigh Trust




We believe that positive and constructive collaboration is at the heart of our success. Every member of staff is valued, challenged and given the opportunity to continuously develop, helping to raise aspirations for all. 

To ensure our staff achieve their full potential we aim to provide staff with an inspiring environment, supportive culture and career opportunities.


A career with Leigh Trust is a career without limits, with the freedom to be yourself and to be great at what you do.

As the employer of choice for thousands of educational professionals and support staff, we believe that working for Leigh Trust offers unrivalled opportunities to develop a career while changing lives and transforming communities.


Whatever your role, we view individuality and diversity as core components of our values. We don’t believe that staff should all have to act and think in the same way, which is why we are dedicated to creating environments in which people can share their own diverse backgrounds, experiences, perspectives and ideas.
