What skills and experience we're looking for

The clerk is accountable to the governing board, working effectively with the chair of governors, the headteacher and other governors. The clerk to the governors will ensure the smooth running of the governing board: preparing agendas and meeting papers, taking and distributing minutes, providing administrative support and providing procedural and legislative advice to the governing board.
