We wish to appoint an organised, flexible and reliable Clerk to the Governing Body to provide high quality support to our Members, Trustees and Local Advisory Board. As Clerk to Governors, you would be required to attend approximately 18 meetings a year of the boards, as well as advising the Governors on matters of procedure, maintaining policies and records.

We are expecting the 8 hours a fortnight to be completed across two days, with one of the two days being completed on site. The working hours of the day on site per fortnight will be dependent on meeting times.

The successful candidate will:

  • be enthusiastic, driven and committed to ensuring the school's future success
  • provide effective administrative support to the governing body and its committees through a working knowledge of the Clerking Competency Framework, the Governance Handbook and Governance Competency Framework.
  • be able to work as part of large, friendly and supportive team
  • have the skills and sensitivity to deal with all members of our community and multi-agency partners
  • be a life-long learner and an inspiration to others.
