Job description
Clerk to Trustees 
Trull Farm Buildings, Tetbury, Gloucestershire (with regular visits to clients, primarily in London)

About Us

We are The Trust Partnership. Our vision is to help charitable Trusts, Foundations and Almshouses to provide better informed, better managed and better directed funding and housing and to use their resources to the best advantage of all their stakeholders.

We are excited that we’ve not only been able to build a thriving business, but to do so on strong ethical foundations. The way we treat our staff, our clients and other stakeholders is important to us, and becoming a Certified B Corporation in 2016 was evidence of our positive impact locally and on the sector as a whole. We believe it’s possible to be a good business and a profitable one at the same time. 

We are now looking for a Clerk to join us on a full or part-time basis and provide support to our Trustees. 

The Benefits 

- Salary of £20,000 - £22,000 FTE depending on skills and experience 
- Work as part of a friendly and caring team
- Lovely offices in a farm building
- All work-related travel costs covered 
- 24 days’ holiday per annum plus Bank Holidays
- Christmas shutdown
- Free parking
- Perkbox benefits (after probation) including free cinema tickets and high street discounts

The Role

As a Clerk, you will ensure the smooth running of meetings, prepare meeting agendas, take accurate minutes, maintain the effective governance of the Trustee Board and be a principal source of communication between charity clients and The Trust Partnership. 

You will oversee the maintenance and care of clients and their beneficiaries, working alongside other Trust Administrators, finance colleagues and Clerks.

Some of your responsibilities will include: 

- Advising the Trustees on matters of governance procedure, referring to the current Charity Commission legislation and guidance 
- Preparing the agenda for board and subcommittee meetings as appropriate
- Co-ordinating the booking of rooms, and refreshments if required, for board meetings, subcommittees, away days and other special meetings
- Preparing and drafting minutes of all meetings for approval to the Chair within 10 days
- Answering queries from our clients and the general public via dedicated telephone helplines and emails
- Assessing and processing grant applications using a bespoke database, sometimes to tight deadlines

About You 

To join us as a Clerk, you will need: 

- Experience of, or demonstrable understanding of, providing clerk/governance support to a charity, school, parish council, company or other organisation 
- At least three years’ experience of working in a professional office 
- Experience of customer/account work and working with a range of audiences
- A good understanding of charitable governance and the role of Trustees 
- A full driving licence and access to your own vehicle (due to our location)

A good understanding of charity finance would be beneficial to your application.

Other organisations may call this role Admin Clerk, Secretary, Trust Administrator, Secretariat, Office Administrator, Charity Secretary, Company Secretary, or Clerk to Governors.

This role might also suit applicants with experience in Trust Fundraising and Charity Management.
