Are you interested in supporting a local school and engaging with your community? Do you have basic administrative skills, good writing ability and an eye for detail? Would you like to gain new skills in a flexible, varied and interesting role?

We are interested in receiving applications from experienced clerks but we would also like to hear from anyone who might not have clerking experience but would like to train as one, as we can offer full training for this role.
