We are a council that is ambitious for Bruton. We believe that an active town council can make a big difference to a small town. We would like to recruit a town clerk who shares this belief and can help us deliver some exciting projects.

Bruton Town Council prides itself in maintaining a supportive environment for its staff, with opportunities for flexible working and a chance to develop work skills through a positive appraisal and training programme.

We know that our staff are our greatest asset, which is why for this post we are happy to consider applications from those specialists who want to undertake the town clerk role, as well as those who would like to take on the whole clerk/RFO function. The successful applicant will hold or be willing to obtain the Certificate in Local Council Administration and be able to develop the staff team, ensuring all key legal, financial and governance requirements are met. Some evening work will be required to attend council and committee meetings.

In return, we are offering a competitive salary (SCP 30-34 (£34,373- £38,553 pro-rata)), with negotiable working hours to a maximum of 30 per week depending on the extent of the role functions applied for. There might be scope to increase or change these working hours in the future. Staff have access to a free car park, workplace pension scheme, an enhanced annual leave entitlement and a council that is open to hearing your ideas.

Bruton is an attractive, small rural town in the south east corner of Somerset (close to the Wiltshire and Dorset borders). You will be based in the town council office situated in the centre of a bustling high street that offers a good selection of shops and some excellent places to eat!
