We are looking to appoint highly organised and focused individuals to support the work of the Corporate Governance Team.

As an experienced administrator with a track record of servicing Board level committees, the post holder will be part of an experienced and professional team but will be expected to work autonomously.

This role is primarily focused on providing robust administrative support as Committee Secretariat to the strategic arm of the Board's Committees, in order to ensure the smooth functioning of its activities in accordance with the Corporate Governance Framework. Reporting to the Head of Corporate & Partnership Governance, and working closely with Executive Director Leads and Independent Member Chair's, the role will entail providing administrative support for the servicing of the Board's Committees including the development of committee work programmes and formal report writing.

This is a challenging role which will include the preparing, collating and disseminating of committee papers, as well as taking and transcribing formal minutes.

The ability to maintain confidentiality and demonstrate tact and diplomacy at all times is essential, and to demonstrate commitment to the team by working flexibly to cover annual leave, sickness and training.

The successful candidate should have in-depth knowledge of corporate governance and committee services. Advanced keyboard and computer skills as well as good interpersonal and communication skills are essential.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; English and/or Welsh speakers are equally welcome to apply.
