An exciting opportunity has arisen at Thamesmead School for an experienced administrator due to the retirement of the existing post holder.  

The role will be split between providing a clerking service to the Governing Body and providing ad-hoc administrative duties, based on the same range of skills. 

The role is based on 20 hours per week over 41 weeks per annum, including term-time. This includes attendance at some early evening Governing Body meetings, usually about six a term, which are normally held on a Tuesday. 

You will:

  • Utilise high level IT, communication, organisational and interpersonal skills to provide a first-class clerking and administrative service.
  • Maintain GovernorHub, an online administrative system which brings together:           
    • Confidential encrypted online storage of documents in one place, accessible by all the members of the governing board.
    • A shared calendar of meetings which can be seen on the web and synchronised to governors’ smartphone, work or tablet calendar.
    • Links to DfE and Ofsted data about the school.
    • Education news locally and from around the country.
    • A private area for a governing board to exchange messages and emails.
    • Tools for clerks to manage membership, roles, committees and organise meetings quickly and easily.
    • Apps for iPad, iPhone and Android which can be used to download documents to use in meetings even if there’s no internet access.
    • Downloadable reports for the meeting attendance, declarations of interest and membership to help the school comply with statutory requirements.
  • Ensure compliance with statute and National Governors Association (NGA) guidelines.

Thamesmead School looks forward to receiving applications from within and beyond the world of education. For information, the current post holder is retiring but has agreed to undertake a handover period with her successor.

Closing date: Monday 23 September 2019.
