Governance Co-Ordinator

Steyning Grammar School - Upper School and Sixth Form CollegeWest Sussex

Bohunt Education Trust and member Schools of Steyning Grammar School, Horsham and Worthing, wish to appoint a highly organised, self-motivated and personable area Governance Co-Ordinator to join the Trust and its member schools above as soon as possible. 

This is an exciting opportunity to join our governance team, which will include access to regular team meetings and training. Successful candidates will have excellent communication, interpersonal and organisational skills, and be able to work independently and organise their own time whilst working to strict deadlines. Because of the nature of this role, discretion and confidentiality are vital. You will:

• Line manage Governance Clerks to the Local Governing Bodies in your area (around one formal line management meeting per half term).

• Support the provision of expert guidance and advice to the LGBs in your area either directly or indirectly; with respect to procedures, compliance and best practice as a Local Governing Body of Bohunt Education Trust.

•  Proactively contribute  to the effective governance of Bohunt Education Trust as a whole through additional tasks as directed depending on capacity.

The successful candidate will work closely with colleagues but will also be required to work with minimum supervision. Good computer and Microsoft software package skills and a willingness to become confident with Google drive are essential, as is and the ability to work and communicate with a variety of stakeholders. You may have had previous governance experience as a school clerk, and would be or would become a BET Governance Clerk. Previous governance experience in any capacity is desirable but not essential. You should also be interested in education and committed to the best interests of young people, as well as being able to deal with matters tactfully and confidentially.  Hours will mostly be worked during term time but can be undertaken entirely remotely.

If you feel you could contribute to the Trust’s success please read the job description and person specification for further details and complete the BET support staff application form. If you would like to discuss the role further please contact Raine Ryland, Director of Governance on 01428 724324 (ext 316).
