Democratic Services Officer

Are you looking for a new challenge at a Seriously Different Council?

With a good educational background and an interest in Local Government, you will be extremely well-organised and politically sensitive.  You will be looking to build on your analytical and administrative skills.  You will be excited at the opportunity to clerk the Council’s formal meetings.  You will be keen to support the Council’s busy Chairman.

As a Democratic Services Officer you will work well under pressure and be able to respond quickly and with confidence to changing circumstances. A committed team player, you will have a flexible approach and commitment to the belief that ‘the customer is anyone who isn’t me’.

We are an award winning Council. Having achieved the Guardian Public Service Awards 2016 for being financially self-sufficient, we are one of the few organisations in the country to retain its Platinum Investors in People status. We were voted LGC Council of the Year 2017 and won a Pushing the Boundaries of Innovation award in 2018. The successes of the Finance Team have been recently recognised where the Finance Team has been nominated and is a finalist in the 2020 Public Finance Awards – Finance Team of the Year – Councils.

Based at Argyle Road in Sevenoaks, we can offer you an excellent benefits package that includes 24 to 32 days’ annual leave (depending on length of local government service and band) plus public holidays with the flexibility of buying or selling additional leave, flexible working, a generous pension scheme, discounted membership at Council leisure facilities, etc.

If you like the idea of working as a committee clerk in a small and busy team in a friendly workplace, this might just be the opportunity for you.  For an informal chat about the post, please email martin.goodman@sevenoaks.gov.uk to arrange a conversation.
