Are you an enthusiastic, hardworking, team-player looking for a new role in democratic services?

We are looking to appoint a highly motivated Democratic Services Officer with experience of working in a committee services role in a local authority or similar organisation.

Our Democratic Services Team provides support to all the Council Committees, as well as providing support to councillors and senior management at the heart of the Council’s decision-making.

Working as part of a small and busy team in a challenging and stimulating environment, you will be organised, accurate and able to work under pressure to meet deadlines. You will have excellent communication and interpersonal skills; and political awareness.  Ideally, you will have experience of Modern.Gov or a similar agenda management system and be confident in using IT to deliver the team’s services.

You will be committed and flexible in your approach, and be prepared to attend evening meetings, for which a flexible application of your working hours will apply.

This post is a full-time role. However, all applications will be considered.

This is a hybrid role. You will work a combination of home and office working throughout the week. This will be discussed in interview.

For an informal discussion about the post, please contact Louise Fleming, Democratic Services & Business Support Team Manager on 01483 523517.

We do not accept CVs without a completed application form. Strictly no agencies please. Please note we do not accept applications after the time given on the advert.
