We are looking for a secretary to support the chair to ensure the board functions smoothly. The secretary may carry out their duties directly or delegate them to a member of staff and ensure that they have been carried out.

In this role, you should be a very organized individual, with knowledge or the willingness to learn how to minute-take.

What skills do I need?

In addition to the general responsibilities of a trustee, duties of the secretary are as follows:

• Preparing agendas in consultation with the chair and chief executive and circulating them and any supporting papers in good time. • Making all the arrangements for meetings. • Receiving agenda items from other trustees/staff. • Taking minutes (or being responsible for them being taken) and circulating draft minutes to all trustees. • Ensuring that the minutes are signed by the chair once they have been approved. • Checking that trustees and staff have carried out actions agreed at a previous meeting. • Circulating agendas and minutes of the annual general meeting and any special or extraordinary general meetings (where required).
