VENTRUS LIMITED - 6 days remaining
Closing Date 10/12/2021
Ventrus Multi-Academy Trust, Woodwater Academy, Woodwater Lane, Exeter, Devon, EX25AW
NJC Grade C: £18,933 - £19,698 FTE (this will be paid pro-rata according to hours and weeks worked)

Ventrus is a member of Ventrus, a group of Devon schools who actively collaborate to improve children's outcomes. As a Trust, we offer excellent career and development opportunities.


We wish to appoint a number of highly motivated Clerks to provide effective administrative support to the Local Governing Boards (LGBs) of several schools within the Trust. 

Key responsibilities include:

  • Provide effective administrative support to the governing body, which involves preparing agendas in consultation with the Chair of Governors and Headteacher; taking and writing up the minutes and distributing documentation and other information to Governors
  • Efficiently manage information and administer meetings 
  • Provide advice to the governing body on governance, constitutional and procedural matters

At Ventrus Multi Academy Trust, we believe a Clerk to the Local Governing Body plays a critical role. You need to be a highly organised person with attention to detail. You will have general administration experience such as minute taking and meeting organisation and be able to demonstrate a diplomatic approach to communication. Specific training on governance within a MAT will be provided through support from the Senior Executive Assistant.

These are term-time only, permanent, part-time positions working 50 hours per annum per LGB/school.

Under normal circumstances, Governing Body meetings usually take place on site in the relevant school, in the evenings, although at present are being held online via Microsoft Teams. The role is currently being carried out from home so it is essential therefore that the Clerk has access to a computer/laptop and internet. Attendance is required at four full governing body meetings per year per LGB, plus four Clerks meetings.

To apply for this role please submit your application online; your supporting statement should identify your suitability for the post.

Closing date for applications is 12 noon on Thursday 18th November 2021. Interviews will be held on Thursday 2nd December 2021.


Ventrus is an equal opportunities employer, committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.  We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment and an enhanced disclosure is required for this post.
