Town Clerk and Responsible Finance Officer

This is a real opportunity for an experienced, solutions focussed leader who is dynamic, innovative and resilient and who will pragmatically seek to meet the aspirations of the councillors and the people of Radstock.

The Town Clerk is responsible for carrying out all the functions of the proper officer providing effective leadership and management of staff, services and facilities. We are looking for a town clerk with the necessary skills, experience and knowledge to work with councillors and staff to deliver the council’s key aims and priorities. Partnership working and asset management experience will be vital as the council is currently working on a programme of asset transfers from B&NES and has just established the first Community Hub for Radstock. A key element of the role will be to assist the town council in developing a new staffing structure to deliver these objectives.

You may be an experienced local council officer with knowledge, experience and status as a qualified clerk and holding a Certificate in Local Council Administration (CiLCA). However, you may also have a successful track record at management level elsewhere in Local Government and be prepared to quickly qualify as a town clerk (within 12 months of employment).

The role is challenging, and you will be required to regularly work evenings and occasional weekends. You will be supported by a strong and positive team of employees including our Office Manager, Finance Officer and Community Hub Receptionist.

Radstock TC is committed to ensuring equality of opportunity in employment by ensuring that we do not unfairly discriminate against any job applicant or existing employee. We particularly welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds.
