Local Governing Body (LGB) Clerk
Cambridge Academy for Science and Technology is part of a cluster of five schools within the United Learning group. The three secondary schools, Coleridge Community College, Parkside Community College and Trumpington Community College, one primary, The Galfrid School, and a specialist 13-19 college, Cambridge Academy for Science and Technology.
All schools work closely together to realise their goal of being a leading learning partnership.
The college is situated in the heart of Cambridge’s Biomedical Campus, surrounded by world leading academic and commercial organisations which sponsor, support and contribute towards the life and work of CAST.
CAST is part of the United Learning Trust and is also supported by the Baker Dearing Trust as a University Technical College (UTC).
We are seeking someone who is reliable, confident, and good with people, with a strong interest in school governance to join our Cluster Governance Team.
You will need to be highly organised and able to work autonomously whilst retaining a high level of communication with the Governance Manager, Principal and the LGB.
Experience of minute taking is essential and you will have, or be willing to train for, a recognised governance or clerking qualification.
Flexibility around meeting times is also required - most are scheduled for early evenings.
Responsibilities will include providing administrative support to your designated LGB within the Cluster and advising on procedural and legislative matters to ensure the LGB works to the legal framework and the United Learning Scheme of Delegation.
The vacancy is currently open for one school with the potential to increase this in future and with the expectation to clerk specialist panels and to occasionally locum where needed across the Cluster if and when required.
The Cambridge Cluster joined United Learning lately, a large, and growing, group of schools aiming to offer a life changing education to children and young people across England.
Our schools work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could. Our Subject Advisors, our Group-wide intranet, our own curriculum and our online learning portal all help us share knowledge and resource, helping to simplify work processes and manage workloads for an improved work-life balance.
We are working hard to become a more diverse organisation which is key to our commitment to bringing out the best in everyone.
We welcome applications from everyone committed to this ethos and would particularly welcome applications from black and minority ethnic candidates, who are currently under-represented in the Group as a whole.
We always appoint on merit. We are open to discussing flexible working options.
