About the role:

Stapleford Town Council is a dynamic and forward-thinking organisation.  We are looking for a self-starter with a ‘can do’ attitude to support the Town Clerk with delivering the Council’s ambitious plans for the Town.  This is an exciting time to be joining the Council and the successful candidate will play a key role in developing new services for the community.

The primary functions of this role are to manage the Council’s facilities and three members of staff, provide committee administration support and to lead on events management.  Candidates should therefore have a reasonable knowledge of local government law and procedures, experience of budget and project management and either hold the Certificate in Local Government Administration (CiLCA) or equivalent, or be willing to work towards it.

Attendance at evening meetings will be required along with occasional weekends.

This is a politically restricted post.
