Bruton Town Council – Town Clerk

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a community minded and motivated individual, with relevant experience, to undertake this interesting and varied post supporting a highly ambitious town council.

Bruton is a small rural town situated in the south east corner of Somerset (close to the Wiltshire and Dorset borders). In addition to employing an assistant clerk and community development officer, the council also has a dedicated group of community office volunteers and thirteen active elected members. The council will be seeking to recruit an additional assistant clerk once the new town clerk is in office.
We are seeking a town clerk of the highest calibre to lead and develop our team, to work positively alongside elected members to help improve the town and to ensure that all key legal, financial and other governance requirements are met.

The successful applicant will either hold or be willing to obtain the Certificate in Local Council Administration.
The town clerk is contracted to work 15 hours per week, based at the town council’s office. Some evening work will be required to attend council and occasional committee meetings. There may be scope to increase these hours in the future, by mutual agreement.

The position is graded at lower LC3, (SCP 33-36) £14,968 - £16,169 pa (actual salary, based on 15 hours per week), subject to qualifications and experience.
