Vacancy at Walcott Parish Council

WALCOTT Parish Council invites applicants for the role of Clerk to replace our current Clerk who has been with us since the Council was formed in 2008.

About the Role: The Clerk acts as a proper officer of the Council, managing day-to-day Council business, providing regulatory advice to the Council, and implementing the Council's decisions. Previous experience and qualifications in a similar role are desirable but not essential. A local candidate is preferable and, ideally, applicants should hold, or be willing to obtain within 12 months, the Certificate in Local Council Administration.

This role offers an excellent opportunity for an enthusiastic, innovative, flexible, and proactive clerk to assist in establishing the working practices of the Council.  The home-based post is part-time, with a requirement to attend bi-monthly meetings; the majority of which will be on Monday evenings in Walcott.

Hours: The long-term contracted hours will be 5½ hours per week; subject to annual review.

Salary: Pay and conditions are based on the National Association of Local Councils and Society of Local Council Clerks' new salary scale points 5-12; depending on experience and qualifications.

To apply:

Please forward CV and letter of application in the first instance to the Chair:

Mrs Pauline Porter, Holmwood, Helena Road, Walcott, Norfolk NR12 0LX

For an informal chat about the position please call Pauline on 01692 650626, or the current Clerk (Martin Campbell) on 01263 834551

The closing date for applications is 23 July 2021
