Are you looking for a flexible but rewarding role?

We are a thriving Trust on the south coast of England with 16 current schools, 4927 children and 706 staff. These are exciting times! We are looking for a Clerk for our Local Governing Bodies (LGB) to provide support to schools within the Trust in East Sussex (mainly the Hastings area).

Applicants need to be reliable, confident, good with people and with an interest in school governance. You will need skills in good administrative practice and experience of minute taking. You will also need to be confident in the use of Word, Excel and e-mail and have access to a computer and the internet. 

Responsibilities will include providing effective administrative support and advice to the local governing body on governance, constitutional and procedural matters, managing information effectively in accordance with legal requirements.

Tasks include providing advice, the preparation and circulation of papers, attendance at meetings and minute taking, maintaining a business calendar including policy reviews.  

It is not essential to have previous clerking experience, although this would be helpful.  We are interested to hear from applicants that either hold a relevant award (BTEC level 3 in Clerk to the Governing Board or equivalent) or be prepared to work towards a recognised accreditation.

You will be employed on a zero-hour contract and will be paid an hourly rate for attendance at LGB meetings, time taken in preparing for the meetings (e.g., agendas and minutes) and any other relevant administrative work or attendance at training courses directly supporting your role.

Completed applications should be addressed to HR@dcat.academy. The deadline for applications is Friday 9 December 2022. Interview date to be confirmed. For a confidential discussion about the role, please contact Danni Gregory, Governance Professional, on 01273 056292, email at dgregory@dcat.academy

The Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

Successful candidates will be required to complete an enhanced DBS check upon appointment.
