14. The Secretary to Council


The Secretary to Council shall be appointed by the Council after consultation with the Warden and shall hold office for such period and (subject to Statute 16) upon such conditions as the Council may determine.


The Secretary shall undertake such duties as Council or the Chair of Council may determine, subject to the provisions of any external Code of Practice, approved by Council, which may place obligations on the Secretary to report improper procedure by the Council or its officers to an external body.


The Secretary may have other duties as a member of staff of the College and will normally be responsible to a person or persons other than the Chair of Council for the discharge of those duties. Where this applies, the appointment as Secretary will terminate at the same time as the staff appointment unless the Council determines otherwise.
