The Town Council is very active in the community and has a particular commitment to outdoor spaces.

We expect the new Clerk to be educated to degree level or equivalent and have a thorough grounding in looking after staff and facilities. We are looking for an energetic, confident yet caring Clerk who will also have good financial management and IT skills.

Although we recognise that the ideal skill set, we require may reside with an existing or Deputy Town Clerk, we are keen to open this role to a wider group of professional people with the relevant skills.

We are an equal opportunities employer.

The initial salary level will be SCP 36 and this equates to a pro rata salary of £38813 per annum, 37 hrs per week, but this level will not be a barrier to an outstanding candidate. We may consider a part time role for a suitable applicant.
