This is an exciting opportunity to help drive forward school improvement by making a significant contribution to effective governance.
The clerk to the governing body will be accountable to the governing body, working effectively with the chair of governors, the Headteacher/Principal and other governors.
The clerk to the governing body will be responsible for the co-ordination of the distribution of papers and will minute meetings. The clerk, fully supported by School Governor Services, will be responsible for advising the governing body about constitutional matters, duties, and powers within the current legislative framework. All clerks will be trained to a nationally accredited level.
Whilst the role requires a minimum of ten hours per term, the number of hours worked is open to negotiation - we support multiple schools across the city (and beyond) and there are plenty of opportunities available to work additional hours - the nature of the work requires flexibility with most (but not all) governing boards meeting in the evening.
The role of clerk to the governing body will suit someone with excellent organisational skills, who is used to working to deadlines, has good listening, oral, and literacy skills, and previous experience of accurate minute taking.
For more information about this exciting, and flexible, opportunity to join our team of clerks please contact Jane Fallows, Governor Support Manager on 01782 235981.
