Jennie Williams, MCIPD & Postgrad HRM
Clerk to the IEB
Whilst Jennie may not be a member of the Interim Executive Board (IEB), as Clerk she plays a vital role in ensuring the Board receives the support it needs. She is responsible for the administrative functions surrounding the activities of the Board to ensure it operates efficiently and effectively.
Jennie is a local resident and a member of the Flintshire Education Team. In that capacity, she is passionate about ensuring all Flintshire learners are provided with an opportunity to flourish and be the best that they can be. Jennie’s son is currently in one of the local primary schools in Flintshire.
Jennie’s 19 years work career has covered a wide range of HR posts, mainly in the public sector, including specialist organisational development and recruitment roles. In 2015 she decided on a career change to develop her interest in project management, taking a Project Officer role in a schools’ capital building team. Since then she has worked on several major projects to support the delivery of some of the new school buildings that can now be seen around the County.
Alongside her day job, Jennie was Clerk for the IEB at St Richard Gwyn Catholic High School during its eighteen-month lifespan and continues in that role for the new governing body there. As Clerk at Ysgol Treffynnon she hopes to use that experience to support close working with the IEB and the school.
She says that, “I am really pleased to be working with the IEB and senior leadership team at Ysgol Treffynnon, I hope to see my own passion for education reflected in the team.”
Jennie hopes there will be opportunities to use her project management experience to facilitate the operational running of the IEB, advise the Chair and the Board and help the school on its improvement journey.
Jennie’s organisational skills and methodical approach will underpin the workings of the IEB and help to ensure monthly Board meetings are productive. She, along with the Board members and senior leadership team, is firmly committed to ensuring that Ysgol Treffynnon achieves its vision for ‘Excellence’.
