Coventry University is seeking to appoint an Assistant Clerk to the Board and Company Secretary into a new team within the Office of the Group Registrar & Secretary following a realignment of roles and responsibilities.

We are looking for dynamic, effective and credible individuals to help us on the next stage of our plans for growth. The team will be responsible for managing and developing the Group's governance and risk frameworks in a highly regulated and competitive higher education environment.

The University is an exempt charity, and has a group structure that includes academic and commercial subsidiaries. Consequently, knowledge and experience of governance in different sectors will be of value in any of the roles.

Coventry University was named the UK’s top modern university in 2017 in both the Guardian University Guide – in which it ranks 12th overall – and the Complete University Guide. We provide “Gold” rated teaching and learning (Teaching Excellence Framework, 2017) to over 29,000 students at campuses in Coventry, London and North Yorkshire in all academic disciplines - from health, business and performing arts to industrial design, engineering and computing.

We deliver our Corporate Plan through a commercial and enterprising outlook, underpinned by robust and transparent governance, which keep us at the forefront of teaching & learning, internationalisation and research.
