Clerk of the Parish Council Vacancy

Our small parish council has a position for a clerk.  If you have administrative experience and a willingness to learn – this could be you.  A CiLCA qualification would be useful but not essential as training can be arranged.

The ideal person will be confident and , most of all, independent.  As the ‘proper officer’ for the parish a small amount of financial management will be required therefore an eye for detail is also important.

Outline of tasks –  Preparing agendas, taking minutes of meetings, answering residents enquiries, ensuring the council financial affairs are in order,  updating the parish website.

Skills – The successful person will be an excellent communicator, and have good IT skills.

Discretion, impartiality and self confidence are key to being a successful clerk.
