Brampton Parish Council has an excellent opportunity for a motivated and driven individual to join the council.
The successful candidate will be responsible for providing the members of the council with comprehensive administration support, attendance of meetings and conferences, including documenting and circulation of minutes for these meetings. The person appointed will be accountable to the Council for the effective management of all its resources (including staff) and will report to council members as and when required. The Clerk is the Responsible Financial Officer (RFO), and as such the successful candidate will be responsible for all the financial records of the Council and the careful administration of its finances.
Excellent communication skills are essential, along with experience of Microsoft Office or a similar package and knowledge of maintaining accounts, reconciliations, budget control, invoicing and banking. The successful candidate will preferably be CiLCA qualified (or equivalent), but consideration will be given to a suitable candidate willing to study for this. Local government experience would also be an advantage.
Initially the successful candidate will work alongside the current Clerk who is working reduced hours approaching her retirement. This will provide a suitable transitional period enabling the successful candidate to gain the required training, knowledge and experience appropriate to the role.
