The Trust currently comprises of 24 academies, 19 primary and 5 secondary. The Trust is seeking an experienced Clerk to providing a clerking role to three secondary schools in Kent.
Our ideal candidate will be a skilled Clerk who is used to organising meetings, preparing agendas and meeting materials prior to meetings and following up on actions (matters arising). The candidate will provide support and advice to governance committee members, take and circulate minutes following meetings. Experience of clerking at secondary schools is desired although not essential.
The successful candidate will work closely with the Governance Officer and Company Secretary to ensure that all aspects of governance are effective and that they provide support in an efficient and competent manner through their Clerking role. Main duties will include circulating documents, arranging meetings, attending meetings and taking minutes.
The role is home-based on a part-time basis however it could have the potential to become full-time at a later date if the candidate required. The role will include occasional travel to the Barham Court Office in Maidstone and Academies across Kent. We are looking for someone who can commit to fulfilling the role working in a flexible working arrangement as well as attending the meetings at the Academies as required in the evenings.
Meetings are held up to 6 times per annum for each Academy and there will be a requirement to attend Committee Meetings also at each Academy. (At present all of our meetings are taking place virtually via Zoom or MS Teams).
Clerks will be expected to travel between academies to attend meetings and therefore access to a car is essential. Mileage can be claimed for separately.
