Northstowe Town Council was established on the 1st April 2021 by a re-organisation order. It is represented by 15 members, whose main function is to give a democratically elected voice to the people of Northstowe on the issues that concern them the most.

Based on the site of the former RAF Oakington base and surrounding farmland between Cambridge and Huntingdon, Northstowe is a sustainable new development that is richly steeped in local history, giving it an identity that is entirely unique and one that promotes health and well-being.

Northstowe is located 8km to the northwest of Cambridge, adjacent to the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway. To the south, Northstowe extends towards the village of Oakington and Westwick and to the west it abuts the village of Longstanton. Northstowe will have around 10,200 new homes and an anticipated population of around 26,200 people. In addition to residential developments, Northstowe will have mixed use local centres, a vibrant town centre, employment land, sports hubs, primary schools and a secondary school.

The town council wish to find a proactive, enthusiastic, and highly motivated person to support our new and dynamic town council as Clerk and Responsible Financial Officer.

The clerk is normally based in the council office with some hours of home working negotiable. During the COVID-19 crisis, they would expect the clerk to work from home with time in the office as appropriate.

The hours of work each week are 37 hours, flexible hours will be considered
