Job details

The Governing Body is seeking to appoint an efficient and suitably experienced person to provide a professional clerking service. This is an exciting opportunity for an organised individual to work with our highly effective Governors.


The role involves preparation and distribution of agendas and minutes, attending and accurately taking minutes of meetings and providing advice and support to the Governing Body at both the Full Governing Body and Governor Committee meetings. Meetings are usually held on Thursdays (after school 4.00 to 7.00 p.m.) and dates are set in advance for the whole academic year. From time to time there will be a need to clerk additional panel meetings (e.g. Student Exclusion / Staff Discipline) and additional hours worked can be claimed accordingly.


Preparation for meetings, research and writing up can be carried out from home and therefore these hours are flexible, providing timelines are adhered to.


It is important that the post is filled by someone who is in sympathy with, and supports the Christian ethos of the School.


Bishop’s is committed to safeguarding and the successful applicant will be required to complete an enhanced DBS check before taking up the post.
