What skills and experience we're looking for

Transform Trust is a successful multi academy trust with 22 primary schools, soon to be 26. We like to think our values and ethos set us apart from other Trusts in that we have a strong focus on empowering our member schools to drive their improvement journey whilst maintaining their own individual identity and community focus. As we continually grow, we are now looking for a highly organised Governance Professional to support and advise our Local Governing Bodies.

Professional, quality clerking is about much more than taking minutes to record the discussions and decisions of the board. It is also about providing governing boards with expert advice on governance, procedures and compliance and directly contributing to its efficient conduct. The voluntary nature of governance makes it all the more important that boards conduct their business efficiently to make the best possible use of everyone’s time. A Governance Professional has a vital role to play in meeting the administrative and procedural requirements of boards and enabling efficient and effective discussion and decision-making.

What you will need to succeed:

  • Be flexible in your working hours and travel between schools (although many meetings can be attended virtually)
  • Possess excellence time management skills and be able to work independently
  • Be able to produce high quality and accurate minutes
  • Have an eye for detail and excellent proof-reading skills
  • Be an excellent communicator
  • Maintain a high standard of work under pressure
  • Develop a systematic approach to managing documentation for compliance and internal/external auditing
  • Show integrity, be able to maintain confidentiality and remain impartial
  • Be a highly competent user of Microsoft Office and email
  • Ability to work with a range of stakeholders and tackle complex issues.

What the school offers its staff

In return, we offer great opportunities for personal and career development with a fantastic team of colleagues to work alongside. Our governance practice was recognised as “highly effective” in a recent External Review of Governance and you will be able to contribute to our continuous development towards excellence. The role is exciting and fast moving and you will be a valuable part of the Governance teams across the Trust.
