We would like to recruit a Clerk to Deanshanger Primary School Governors

Part-time and Term Time only

We are looking to appoint an exceptional candidate to provide professional clerking services to our Governing Body.  The role will include providing advice to the Governors on governance, constitutional and procedural matters and provide effective administrative support to the Chair of Governors and Governing Body to fulfil their statutory requirements. 

Due to the confidential nature of this role and potential conflict of interest, we have been advised that this role is best suited to a candidate unrelated to the Deanshanger Primary School community.  The successful candidate will have excellent communication and organisational skills, strong IT skills and be capable of working independently and confidentially whilst at the same time forming effective working relationships with the Chair of Governors (and other Governors), the HT and School.    This post will work on a flexible basis so the successful candidate must be able to organise their own time and work to strict deadlines.   A knowledge of multi academy trust and governing body procedures and previous experience in a similar role is desirable, however, some training may be available and a ‘can do’ flexible attitude highly valued.

The job role will be on a flexible basis, term time only, working a total of approximately 80-100 hours over the year and is paid on a per meeting basis.   The Clerk to Governors will be required to attend FGB and Committee Meetings.  There are currently 12-15 meetings per year which usually take place with either a 5.30pm or 6.30pm start time but a daytime one is very occasionally required.  

If you would like an informal chat before applying, please make contact with Sue Forman Chair of Governors, by making contact with admin in the first instance.  Alternatively, a job description and details of the School are available on our website where you can download an application form and email to the School Business Manager

Applications to be received by 10a.m. on Monday, 15th January 2018  with interviews shortly after.

Salary: to be discussed at interview

Start date: January 2018
