Governance Administration Officer

The Trust will also consider job share opportunities for this role.

The Trust is looking to appoint a highly motivated individual with experience of working in an administrative environment to undertake the role of Governance Administration Officer.  The person appointed will contribute to the efficient functioning of local governance committees by delivering high quality administrative and organisational support in addition to providing advice and guidance to Governors within the regulatory and compliance framework.

The successful candidate will service a number of Local Governance Committees within the Trust which will require attendance at meetings, some of which take place during the evening.  Duties will include the preparation of meeting papers, production of minutes and keeping accurate Governance records. In addition, this key position within the Trust central team will involve working with the Strategic Director for Governance and Communications to implement the Trust Governance Plan in line with the agreed aims and objectives.

This role will provide an opportunity for a talented individual to work within a growing area of focus for schools and Trusts.  Although a knowledge of Governance is desirable, it is not essential as full induction and training will be given.

  • Possess good organisational skills.
  • Have strong administration skills with a good knowledge of ICT.
  • Be an excellent verbal and written communicator.
  • Be committed to undertaking the necessary induction and ongoing training.
