Board Clerk

£15- £20 per hour
Westway Trust
  • Purpose of the Role: To provide high quality, accurate and timely minutes of the meetings of the Board of Trustees and the Board’s sub-committees. You will work closely with the Chair of the Trust, other trustees and co-opted committee members, the Joint Chief Executives (one of whom is also the Company Secretary) and the Head of Policy, along with other colleagues as required.There are typically about eight Board meetings each year, usually held in the early evening but at least one of these meetings each year may be a full-day session. In addition, the Board has five sub-committees, mostly meeting at least quarterly and again usually in the early evening but with some daytime meetings too. (The governance model at Westway Trust is currently being reviewed and it is possible that the frequency of meetings and the overall governance structure may change in due course).You will also be required to minute the Trust’s Annual General Meeting, normally held during the day on a date in December, and any extraordinary general meetings that may on occasion take place.Although meeting dates are normally set well in advance, circumstances may result in individual dates being changed nearer the time. Flexibility on your part will therefore be required.We would particularly welcome applications from people living in the North Kensington area. Recognising the large number of meetings in a year, we would be prepared to consider splitting the role between more than one person if necessary to ensure that all the meetings could be covered.Office space for the writing up of minutes can be provided. However, we would be happy for this work to be undertaken on a homeworking basis, subject to you, with support from us if appropriate, having suitable arrangements in place in your home.
