Become a clerk to governors

The Kent Clerking Service provides expert and professional clerking support to governing bodies. 

A good clerk is a valuable and essential asset to any governing body, and duties undertaken efficiently can make a real difference to the governing body's role in school improvement.

The work is interesting, varied and challenging, as well as rewarding.

The clerk to the governing body is responsible for:

  • convening and attending meetings of the governing body
  • taking minutes
  • keeping a register of governing body members and attendance
  • keeping a track of membership
  • giving advice and support on relevant procedure and regulations. 

Our clerks are fully trained and supported to perform these duties.

We are always looking to increase our team.  If you are interested in joining the service please find out more about our clerking service.
