We are excited to announce we are looking to appoint a committed and enthusiastic Clerk to Governors. The purpose of this post is to support our Governors in the execution of their duties.

The College is a very warm and friendly school with a fantastic student body and dedicated and talented staff. You will join us at an exciting time as we continue our journey to become an outstanding academy.

Our vision for the school is to deliver outstanding education to our students, not only in terms of academic success, but by ensuring we develop the “whole child”. In order to enjoy a successful adult life it is important that our students develop characteristics such as leadership, organisation, resilience, initiative, and communication.

Our staff set an example to our students and this is a fantastic opportunity for a candidate with these characteristics to contribute to the realisation of our vision.

  • Do you have experience of minute taking, arranging meetings, maintaining accurate records or Company Secretary Experience?
  • Do you have at least 1-2 years’ experience working in an administrative or secretarial role?
  • Are you reliable, flexible and proactive?
  • Do you possess excellent organisation skills to support Governors and Senior Management in meeting their Company Secretary Obligations including meeting Education Funding Agency’s deadlines and complying with Charity Law?

If so, we would like to hear from you!

Candidates must have the ability to prioritise and manage their workload.

The majority of governors meetings are held in the evening after 6.00 pm. The Clerk is required to minute all of the governor meetings and other management meetings held at the College in the evening as well as liaising with senior leadership to provide packs of information in advance of the meetings.

The Company Secretary responsibilities will take place outside of the meeting organisation and applications for flexible hours around the scheduled meetings and/or job shares will be welcomed for consideration.

We recognise that to realise our vision we need to attract, develop and reward our people. We are an ‘Investor in People’, and are committed to the professional development and career progression of our employees.

The successful candidate will:

  • Be supported by a performance management system that rewards excellence
  • Have access to appropriate training and CPD
  • Be given opportunities for continual improvement
  • Enjoy positive leadership and peer support from a focused and committed staff
