Part Time Opportunity as Trust Clerk 

The Trust is seeking a highly effective, efficient and self-motivated Clerk to provide a clerking service to the Trust Board and some of our Local Governing Bodies.

The clerk will be line managed by the Head of Governance and Estates and be accountable to the Chair of the Trust, Trust Board and Local Governing Bodies of the schools/academies.

Previous experience of education, academies and Clerking to Governors is desirable but not essential.

 The successful Clerk will demonstrate the following:

  • Flexibility, with a high degree of integrity and confidentiality
  • Aptitude for initiative and self-management
  • Excellent planning and organisation skills
  • Effective communication and ICT skills
  • A proven track record of accuracy and attention to detail

Meetings of the Trust Board usually take place in the day and early evenings and Local governing bodies tend to meet early evening with some held in the mornings. The ability to travel is essential.

Attendance is required at all planned meetings but the role is flexible and will require the successful candidate to be able to grow as the trust continues to expand with new schools wanting to join us.

The Diocese of Canterbury Academies Trust is committed to safeguarding children and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all trustees, staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All successful candidates will be subject to an Enhanced Criminal Record Disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service along with other relevant employment checks, including overseas criminal background checks, where applicable. All new trustees, employees and volunteers will be required to undertake safeguarding training on induction which will be regularly updated in line with statutory guidance.
