We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and highly motivated administrator to the post of Clerk to Governors. 

The purpose of the Clerk’s role is to: 

  • Provide advice to the governing body on governance, constitutional and procedural matters
  • Provide effective administrative support to the governing body and its Committees. This includes the taking and preparation of Minutes.
  • Ensure the governing body is properly constituted.
  • Manage information effectively in accordance with legal requirements. 

A willingness to work flexibly is required. The post holder would be required to attend 5 full Governor meetings per year, plus approximately 4 Committee Meetings.  All such meetings would be in the evening. 

Knowledge of how schools and governing bodies operate would be an advantage, along with previous experience of similar work, but full training can be provided.
