The Cherwell School, Marston Ferry Road, Oxford, Oxfordshire OX2 7EE
Grade 8 £12.37 - £13.72 per hour

Clerk to the Governing Body

Grade 8: £12.37 - £13.72 per hour

95 hours per year, approx. 2.5 hours per week, term time only, from September 2021

Home working, with attendance at evening meetings.

Are you interested in supporting a local school and engaging with your

community? Do you have basic administrative skills, good writing ability and an

eye for detail? Would you like to gain new skills in a flexible, varied and

interesting role?

We have four vacancies for a clerk to support our local governing bodies. Among other things you would

be responsible for:

● The timely circulation of agendas

● Attending governing body meetings and the production of accurate minutes

● Monitoring governing body membership and attendance

● Maintaining the register of governors’ business interests

● Providing administrative support to the governing body

● Providing advice to governors on their legal and procedural duties.

The governing body generally meets in the evenings but the rest of the work can be done at home at

any time. At the moment meetings are held virtually but in due course some of these will take place

at the school.

Clerking for both the full governor meetings and committees in the school amounts to

approximately 95 hours per year including attendance at meetings (upto 14 per school year) and

preparation and follow-up, as well as other duties related to the governing body’s operations.

We are interested in receiving applications from experienced clerks but we would also like to hear

from anyone who might not have clerking experience but would like to train as one, as we can offer

full training for this role.
