Trust Clerk job summary

St John the Baptist Catholic Multi Academy Trust is an established Academy Trust of 10 schools situated in Norfolk, North Suffolk and Peterborough with a combined roll of over 3,800 pupils, with much of the administration based at Notre Dame High School in Norwich.

This post is in relation to the Trust Directors and 8 of the schools in Norfolk and North Suffolk. These schools are located in Norwich, Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft, Kings Lynn, Beccles and Bungay. The Trust is looking to expand, so the role may additionally also cover a school in Swaffham. The Clerk would also minute the Trust’s Joint Consultative Committee meetings with Union representatives, and also the meetings of the Julian Teaching School Hub.

We are seeking a Clerk to work within the Trust to provide support to the Directors Board and these Local Governing Bodies (LGBs) meetings. This is a part time flexible role, with time demands that will alter considerably from week to week. There is a pre-published annual calendar, so that the postholder can benefit from flexibility in their working patterns. This post may suit someone who wishes to balance some relatively full weeks with weeks where they are largely commitment free, all published well in advance to allow for planning.

Meetings take place in various school locations and remotely across the Trust, and at various times. However, the Clerk will work from home much of the time, for example for remote meetings and writing of minutes. The Trust Clerk will work with the Trust Compliance Manager, who is based at Notre Dame. The successful applicant will have exceptional organisational, ICT and minute taking skills in order to undertake the clerking and minute taking of governance meetings at both Director level and local Governing Body level within the Trust.

The postholder would need to have a valid Driving licence to get to meetings. Travel expenses can be claimed for reasonable travel and a laptop will be provided.

Join us and benefit from:

a culture which values respect, honesty and kindness;

generous defined benefit pension scheme membership (LGPS);

quality training;

an outstanding quality of relationship between pupils and staff, and between pupils themselves;

staff charter including a number of wellbeing initiatives.
