We are looking for an enthusiastic and experienced person to join our dedicated Council team as Deputy Town Clerk. The postholder will be responsible for undertaking the Council’s day-to-day committee administration and management of an administration team.  They will support the Council’s 19 elected Councillors, oversee the Council’s operational services such as civic and community events, markets, contracts, and communications, and will also be expected to deputise across the whole range of the Council’s activities in the absence of the Town Clerk.

This is a varied and interesting role, with significant interaction with members of the public and Councillors.  The successful candidate will have had substantial previous experience of committee administration and be confident and credible in dealing with others.  Previous service in the public sector would be an advantage but is not essential.
