Creating Tomorrow Multi Academy Trust operates three Special Schools across Northamptonshire and welcomes a Special Free School in Luton into the Trust from September 2021.

We are now looking for colleagues to join our team as clerks to provide full administrative support to the members of each school’s Local Governing Body. 

You should have a thorough understanding of the laws that affect school academies, and will be responsible for ensuring that the Local Governors are aware of, and comply with, standard financial and legal practice and maintain standards of corporate governance. Working within the governance team of the MAT led by the Company Secretary, you will be offered comprehensive support and guidance to ensure that you are successful in the role.

We are looking for someone who is highly organised, has a desire and willingness to learn and has a positive and proactive approach to their work.  Previous experience as a clerk to a school or public body would be advantageous. 

As clerk, you will organise and attend 6 x termly meetings of the local Governing Body meetings per year (depending on the needs of the school, there may be adhoc additional meetings paid at the meeting rate above).

For Post 1, meetings are typically held at 2.30pm. For Posts 2,3 and 4 meetings are typically held at 4.30pm but timings could vary. Meetings are typically 2 hours long.
