The Link Multi Academy Trust is seeking to appoint a highly organised individual with a professional manner and effective communication skills to provide clerking support to its Local Board for the Moorland Hub, comprising of academies, Bearnes, Hennock, Ilsington, Moretonhampstead and Widecombe-in-the-Moor.

Within this clerking position, you will cover one joint Local Board for 5 academies and also have time for annual training and clerks' briefings. This is a part-time role, amounting to approx 6hrs per week, term-time, but candidates need to be available flexibly for a small number of additional days as required to cover clerking panels for exclusions, disciplinaries etc.

The role will mainly be home-based working and at the moment during Covid, meetings have taken place virtually via Microsoft Teams. When allowed, meetings will again take place at our academies, so the role will then include travelling for that purpose to minute meetings.

Discretion and flexibility, plus excellent organisation and computer skills are essential in this role, as well as an interest in education and be able to deal with matters confidentially. A good level of education together with proven experience of organising meetings, writing agendas, producing accurate and concise minutes and providing advice to a governing body is desirable. 

Experience in a previous clerking role is preferred. An encrypted laptop will be provided for this role.

We offer you the support of clear systems, protocols, expectations and structures to help you to succeed. You will need to show initiative, creativity and demonstrate the aptitude to work as part of a successful and growing team.
