An exciting opportunity has arisen for a community minded and motivated individual, ideally with relevant experience, to undertake this interesting and varied post supporting a highly ambitious town council.

Bruton is a small rural town situated in the south east corner of Somerset (close to the Wiltshire and Dorset borders). In addition to employing two assistant clerks and a community development officer, the council also has a dedicated group of community office volunteers and thirteen active elected members.

We are seeking a town clerk of the highest calibre to lead and develop our team, to work positively alongside elected members to help improve the town and to ensure that all key legal, financial and other governance requirements are met.

The successful applicant will ideally hold or be willing to obtain the Certificate in Local Council Administration.

The town clerk is contracted to work 25 hours per week, based at the town council’s office. Some evening work will be required to attend council and occasional committee meetings. There may be scope to increase these working hours in the future, by mutual agreement.

The position is graded at SCP 30-34; £22,825 – £25,662 pa (actual salary, based on 25 hours per week), subject to qualifications and experience.
