Exeter Maths School is an Ofsted Outstanding, state funded, 6th form, jointly sponsored by the University of Exeter and Exeter College. Opened in September 2014, the school is open to students from across Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and Somerset. We also work extensively with students and teachers in other schools, inspiring enthusiasts for maths, physics and computing across the region.

We are seeking to appoint new Clerk to Governors to administer, support and advise the board of governors for our Single Academy Trust.

Governance is strong at EMS, with exceptionally professional and capable governors working within a well-established structure of meetings, school visits and policy reviews. Senior Leaders are proactive in working with governors and the clerk to ensure that accurate and timely information is shared in a spirit of full transparency. The School invests in external support, training and reviews to ensure that best practice is developed and maintained.

The new post holder need not necessarily have significant experience in this area (although experience is always welcome and valued) but should be an exceptional administrator, able to work well with school leaders and governors and with the capacity and commitment to training and development.

The successful candidate will be positive and self-motivated with excellent organisational skills. She/he will be able to work efficiently, to communicate clearly and to digest large volumes of information and distil this for governors. The post holder will work closely with the Headteacher, Chair of Governors, and Committee Chairs to ensure that governance is highly effective. Whilst some of the hours will be flexible, s/he must be able to attend all governors meetings and to support effective team work, a significant proportion of the working hours will be in School.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a high-functioning team and be at the heart of the school s development. The current post holder (soon to retire) reports that being an integral part of the school team and the commitment from senior leaders to governance are benefits of clerking that are unique to EMS. Other benefits include flexible working hours outside of meetings, the opportunity to join the local government pension scheme and if interested to combine with role with occasional additional roles such as exam invigilation or representing the school at careers fairs.

EMS is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and expects all members of staff to share this commitment. All appointments are subject to satisfactory DBS checks, together with the receipt of references.

Interviews will take place on Wednesday 15th May 2024.
Closing date 30th April 2024.
