After many years our Parish Clerk wants to retire from the post, so we are looking to appoint a new Parish Clerk and RFO.
The post is part-time and home based for an average of 30 hours per month, some months being quieter and some busier. Payment is currently paid quarterly but could be paid monthly if preferred and is as per the Local Government Salary guide and commensurate with experience and qualifications.
The working hours are very flexible other than the post holder must be able to attend the monthly evening council meetings, currently held on the 1st Wednesday of the month (except August).
The applicant must be computer literate and will be responsible for organising all meetings of the Parish Council, publishing Agendas and minutes also dealing with correspondence via mail, email and telephone.
The clerk is also responsible for maintaining all Cemetery records.
As RFO the clerk is also responsible for all aspects of financial administration of the Council.
This is a precis of the job which will also include various ad hoc items which keeps the job varied and interesting.
Whilst it is not necessary to hold the ‘Certificate in Local Administration’ qualification, it will be a requirement that this is undertaken. A good local knowledge of the whole of the Parish would be an advantage.
Should you wish to discuss this further please contact either our existing clerk Sarah Potepa or Lorraine Langford on 07478732722, who would be happy to answer any question you might have.
