Part-Time Clerk to the Governors

 

We are seeking an efficient and proactive Clerk to the Governing Body: this is a key role providing administrative and procedural advice to the Governing Board, ensuring its effectiveness. The Clerk reports to the Chair of Governors.

 

This post is part-time, home-based working, is term-time only and requires a degree of flexibility from the post-holder as the schedule of meetings and workloads around them can vary. Governing Body meetings usually take place in the school where the Clerk would attend to take minutes, convene the meetings and provide advice.

 

Primarily the Clerk is responsible for preparing agendas in consultation with the Chair of Governors and Headteacher; taking and writing up the minutes, and distributing documentation and other information to the Governing Board. Several tasks must be completed annually to comply with legal requirements and The Clerk to Governors is responsible for ensuring these matters are attended to efficiently. The Clerk will also need to become familiar with the DFE’s Governance Handbook and provide accurate advice to Governors, as necessary.

 

There are usually 4 meetings of the full Governing Board per year but attendance at approximately 6 Committee Meetings as well as any rare extraordinary full Governing Board Meetings would also be required. Most meetings start at 7pm. A willingness and ability to attend all meetings is essential. Additionally, the successful candidate will also be expected to attend termly briefing sessions held by the Local Authority and take advantage of other training sessions that may be offered.

 

Previous minute taking experience is essential. Ideally, evidence of this should be provided at the application stage. Knowledge/experience of School Governance is highly preferable but not essential, as clerking support and training will be available.

 

The successful candidate will have his/her own transport, a means of writing minutes (laptop/shorthand etc.) and internet access. An educational and/or legal background would be beneficial and candidates should have the capacity to learn quickly.

 

Essential for the post-holder are strong literacy, numeracy and IT skills with excellent communication abilities, highly organised and motivated to keep to deadlines and be prepared to offer procedural advice to governors when needed. The post holder will also have good inter-personal skills and be reliable.

 

Contract – 16 hours paid per month term time only (39 weeks per year), initially on a 6-month probationary basis. The school pays a fixed amount of 16 hours per month term time only but the hours the Clerk works are variable. Some months the Clerk may work less than 16 hours per month and other months more than 16 hours per month – it is anticipated that the hours the Clerk works will average out at 16 hours per month during the school year.

 

The salary starts at scale 4 point 18, which is £18070 FTE, going up to point 21, which is £20138 FTE, and the hourly rate is between £10.0685 and £11.2207.

 

For further information please contact Mrs Rebecca Walker, Chair of Governors, via the School Office.

 

The closing date for applications is Friday 12th January 2018 at 12.00 noon.  Interviews will be held during week commencing 15th January with a view to starting as soon as possible thereafter on an initial 6-month probationary contract. 


The school is committed to ensuring the safety of all who work in it and any successful candidate must be legally able to work in the UK and will be subject to an enhanced DBS check as well as providing satisfactory references.
