The Faringdon Academy of Schools central team is seeking to appoint a Trust Secretary. Under the direction of the Chief Operations Officer (COO), this role will provide administrative capability and support to the Board of Directors, Trust Chief Executive Officer (CEO), and COO in supporting the achievement of the Trusts strategic priorities.

The Trust Secretary will be responsible for leading clerical matters for the Trust Office.

The successful candidate will deliver training to governors, line manage LGB clerks, maintain the FAoS Website and assist with the marketing / PR operations of the trust. The post holder will also ensure relevant policies are in place and administer the Scheme of Delegation ensuring it is reviewed, current and adhered to. This role also involves clerking meetings for the Board of Trustees, which will require some evening working.

Good organisational and communication skills;

Demonstrable ability to work autonomously and co-ordinate tasks with others;

Cognitive flexibility to learn, understand and apply policies and frameworks;

Decision making skills and judgement to manage varying work streams concurrently;

Service orientated approach; and

Experience in clerical and administrative work including minute taking and diary management.

Whilst a working knowledge of education based policies, codes of practice and legislation is desirable, it is not an essential criterion for this role.
