Job Introduction

We are looking for a clerk who will provide high level advice, support and administrative assistance to our governing body.  This involves arranging meetings, taking minutes, keeping records and advising the governing body on local and national developments that will impact on their work.

You must have experience of minute-taking, good ICT and communication skills and be able to work with minimal supervision. Training for clerks is provided by the local authority, as well as opportunities to network with other clerks.

We are ideally looking for an experienced professional who can be employed at the Senior Clerk level.  However we are also able to provide development opportunities for those who wish to work towards this level, so can offer the role at Scale 3 in the first instance.  The local authority offers a 12 month Clerks’ Development Programme, which you would be expected to complete before moving to the next level.

Flexibility in terms of working hours is required. Meetings are held on Mondays or Wednesdays 6:00pm - 7:30pm. There are 3 Full Governing Body meetings each year and 7 committee meetings. Senior clerks are also required to clerk working groups and panels as required, for which you will be paid extra hours.

Additional Information

Your starting salary will be pro rata if the above position is part-time or term-time only.

Work Permits: we may be able to obtain a Work Permit for this post but this is subject to meeting the requirements of the UK Border Agency's Points-based Immigration System.

From 6 April 2011 the Home Office has placed a permanent restriction on the number of migrant workers that all Tier 2 (General) Sponsors can recruit. Due to the restrictions we cannot guarantee that individuals that meet the requirements of the Points-based Immigration System will be issued with clearance to obtain work permits.

Company Information

Please note that this post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, and is subject to a Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) Check.
