Barnsley Governor Clerking Service provides a service to schools which is designed to give their Governing Body the professional support it needs to enable it to operate as effectively as possible within the requirements of current education law and in line with recognised good practice.
An exciting opportunity has arisen within the team working with a wide range of schools and academies.
The successful candidate will be ideally placed to offer general information and advice, as well as to help identify, understand and respond to the needs of particular Governing Bodies. Securing, building and maintaining effective relationships with schools/academies will be a fundamental aspect of this role.
Directing, organising and allocating a pool of Clerks, the successful candidate will require a level 5 or above qualification and have experience of establishing business systems, processes and procedures to increase efficiency.
You will have an understanding, awareness and appreciation of the context of governing body procedures, education legislation, guidance and legal requirements. An Education background being essential and experience of minute taking is a must.
Whilst the above requirements and duties are an essential part of the role, the team is currently in the process of implementing a new software system for schools, Governors and clerks, which is a priority area of work. Main duties for the successful candidate will be around ensuring that this system is put into place and is up and running within projected timescales. This will primarily involve the collating of and inputting of data, as well as advising stakeholders who use the software system how it works. Training will be provided on this.
