The Local Governing Body of Bohunt School Worthing wish to appoint a highly organised, self-motivated and personable Clerk to join the school as soon as possible.

As the Clerk, you will work closely with the Head of School, Chair of the Local Governing Body, the BET Governance Lead and other colleagues across Bohunt Education Trust to support the Governing Body’s work as its professional governance adviser by:

  • Providing high quality administrative and organisational support to enhance the LGB’s effectiveness and efficiency
  • Providing expert guidance and advice to the LGB with respect to procedures, compliance and best practice as a local Governing Body of Bohunt Education Trust
  • Proactively contributing to the effective governance of Bohunt School Horsham and Bohunt Education Trust as a whole.

Hours will mostly be worked during term time and will include some evenings. The workload peaks relate to the Governing Body meetings which are scheduled well in advance for the full school year.

If you feel you could contribute to our school’s success, please read the job description and person specification for further details and complete the support staff application form. If you would like to discuss
