Clerk to The Board of Trustees

The Chelmsford Learning Partnership is looking to appoint a Clerk to the Board of Trustees. The Chelmsford Learning Partnership is an emerging Multi-Academy Trust based in Springfield, Chelmsford.

We are looking to appoint an exceptional candidate to provide professional clerking services to our Board of Trustees.  The role will include providing advice to the trustees on governance, constitutional and procedural matters and provide effective administrative support.
