Grade 8: £12.37 - £13.72 per hour
95 hours per year, approx. 2.5 hours per week, term time only, from September 2021
Home working, with attendance at evening meetings.
Are you interested in supporting a local school and engaging with your community? Do you have basic administrative skills, good writing ability and an eye for detail? Would you like to gain new skills in a flexible, varied and interesting role?
We have a vacancy for a clerk to support our local governing body. Among other things you would be responsible for:
- The timely circulation of agendas
- Attending governing body meetings and the production of accurate minutes
- Monitoring governing body membership and attendance
- Maintaining the register of governors’ business interests
- Providing administrative support to the governing body
- Providing advice to governors on their legal and procedural duties.
The governing body generally meets in the evenings but the rest of the work can be done at home at any time. At the moment meetings are held virtually but in due course some of these will take place at the school.
Clerking for both the full governor meetings and committees in the school amounts to approximately 95 hours per year including attendance at meetings (upto 14 per school year) and preparation and follow-up, as well as other duties related to the governing body’s operations.
We are interested in receiving applications from experienced clerks but we would also like to hear from anyone who might not have clerking experience but would like to train as one, as we can offer full training for this role.
