Head of Governance & Compliance
£43,570 - £47,665 + Benefits
Gosforth Group is keen to ensure governance systems, processes and policies are robust and best practice is adopted throughout all schools, pre-empting continuing growth of the Academy Trust, hence the creation of this role for a Head of Governance and Compliance to operate across the group.
The Head of Governance and Compliance will look after all aspects of governance for the organisation in accordance with government legislation, in addition to ensuring that the organisation remains compliant within the regulatory framework.
The key challenges in this role will be around streamlining and centralising the governance procedures within the organisation, given the recent additions of new schools within the Academy Trust since 2019.
The current base for the role is within Gosforth Academy, however the organisation currently has 6 different schools, therefore there will be a requirement to travel to the different sites for meetings and in carrying out the normal duties of the role. The role is full time and 37 hours per week, with the majority of meetings tending to be within term time. It is worth noting that trustee meetings tend to happen after the working day and the expectation is the individual will take time off in lieu.
