About the role

The School Governance Team in Cambridgeshire seeks to appoint clerks to deliver high quality support focussed upon administration and guidance to governing bodies, helping them to fulfil their strategic roles and responsibilities.

The main duties of the post will include;

  • Producing agendas and minutes to a consistently high standard
  • Providing advice to the governing body on governance legislation and procedural matters
  • Working alongside the Chair of Governors and Headteacher to plan and facilitate governing body meetings
  • Maintaining records of governing body business and membership

Successful candidates will need to possess excellent administration, ICT and communication skills, alongside the ability to work autonomously and flexibly to best meet the needs of different schools. 

Camclerks are classed as homeworkers as most of the work can be undertaken on a flexible basis at home. However, they are expected to attend governing body meetings which are generally held in school. The salary is £12.70 per hour. These are flexible, part-time posts.

Full training and support will be provided to candidates who demonstrate the necessary skills. There is an expectation that regular training and development will be undertaken to maintain knowledge and develop practice.

For more information please contact George Hayes, Strategic Lead for Governance via email to George.Hayes@cambridgeshire.gov.uk.

Previous unsuccessful applicants need not apply.
