We are currently looking for an experienced, well-organised but adaptable individual to take on a role as Clerk to the Corporation. The main purpose of this role is to provide independent advice, guidance and support to the Governing Board on a range of matters relating to governance, constitutional and procedural matters.
A stand-alone position that reports directly into the Chair of the Corporation, the successful candidate will be responsible for administrative activities such as meeting planning, developing Board agendas, producing minutes and action plans, whilst also liaising directly with senior staff members and members of the Corporation on a range of regulatory and constitutional issues.
To take on this challenge you will need to have demonstrable experience working as either a Clerk to Governors within a school/college or charity environment or Board Secretary experience within a commercial environment.
Ideally you will be a member of Chartered Governance Institute and/or be studying for the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators qualification (ICSA).
