Broughton and Milton Keynes Parish Council is a progressive organisation that has grown considerably in service offer and assets within the last 12 months. This has meant that the Council has taken on more resources both employed and contracted to assist with the successful delivery of these services and to maintain our community assets.  The Council have ambitious plans to expand the services and social projects we can offer in the upcoming years and we are looking for someone to head up a strong team of 5, who will work effectively with councillors, partners and the community to enable the Council to continue making a positive impact to help us deliver on our pledges.

We are looking for a candidate with sufficient knowledge, flexibility and leadership skills to administer the business of the council while ensuring that our democratic responsibilities are carried out lawfully and in the best interests of our residents.

Ideally the person will have had some proven local government experience and possess a CiLCA qualification. However, someone who is keen on pursuing or is in the middle of studying for this necessary qualification would be interviewed and their studies funded in the first year of employment for a candidate bringing transferable skills from other backgrounds.   Proven experience of managing a team of dedicated staff with empathy and focus is very important. Working on applications for additional funding will be a significant part of the role as will developing the delivery of projects in the pipeline and sourcing new opportunities. You will need experience in financial management, budgeting and fiscal reporting to do this role justice.

This role requires someone who is looking for a challenging change of pace and direction. You will need to be a self starter and enjoy using your initiative to think outside the box so being highly organised is a must. As you will be dealing with people on many different levels, strong communication and presence is needed.

The role is full time (37 hours per week) and will involve some evening working. The final salary will be dependent on the successful candidate’s breadth of experience.

This is an exciting opportunity to lead a forward thinking, proactive team of councillors and staff, with the stated objective of working to support the community.
