to the Academy’s ongoing development. The Clerk will be accountable to the Governing Board,

The Clerk’s main role is to provide professional clerking services to the Governing Body and its
committees. This includes administrative support and professional advice where appropriate. You
will: -
? Collate and distribute agendas and associated paperwork in advance of meetings
? Take accurate and clear minutes from your own notes, to record agreed actions & decisions
and to sum up key discussions, and to then produce well-presented minutes for distribution
? Be available to take minutes at up to 6 meetings per term throughout the year.

Experience is essential. A background in school or education-related administration would be an
asset. Candidates should be competent in the use of a word processor, email and internet and have
access to a computer. Applicants must be prepared to work flexibly, but some of the work can be
done at home and circulated electronically.
You should have an interest in education, be tactful and able to deal with matters confidentially as
well as being reliable and be a good communicator (written and verbal).
