£23,000 - £26,000 per year with generous non-contributory Pension
Permanent, Full-time
Job description

We have a vacancy for a Team Administrator with specialism in Governance to join us on a full time permanent basis.

The role of Team Administrator – Governance is designed to provide professional and high-quality support to our nine key governance forums and trustee meetings.

The role includes organising meetings, issuing meeting invites and being the point of contact for queries from external stakeholders/partners. A large proportion of the job is taking and drafting minutes, reviewing  the drafts with the Chair of the respective governance meeting, distributing the minutes to governance meeting members / trustees and following up on key actions arising in readiness for the subsequent meeting.

Another important aspect of this specialism is to act as the point of contact for our key stakeholders and trustees including head teachers and governors of our Church schools and representative of our multi-academy trusts.

It should be noted that many of the meetings take place outside of normal office hours, so some flexibility will be required for evening or very occasional weekend meetings.

We welcome applications from all suitable candidates including those independent of the church, and for clarification, this role does not carry a Genuine Occupational Requirement to be a Christian or person of faith.

To the successful candidate, we offer a salary which is competitive within the charity sector, a very generous non-contributory pension scheme, and a modern open plan office environment with free onsite parking for when you are not working flexibly from home.

If you feel excited about being part of this team, have extensive administration experience (particularly in detailed and accurate minute taking), work with an efficient and organised style delivering a confidential and professional service, we would very much welcome an application from you.    

The full role details including job description and person specification can be found in the attached application pack. There is also contact details for the line manager of the role, Mia Elliott, Office & Facilities Manager, who would be delighted to answer any questions you may have.

Your application should consist of a completed application form and supporting statement (no more than two sides of A4) detailing your reasons for applying, what you can bring to the post and how you meet its requirements.

The closing date for receipt of applications is Midnight on 31 October 2021 and the application should be sent by email - details of the address are in the pack and at the end of the application form.

We look forward to hearing from you!
