An exciting opportunity has arisen for the role of Town Clerk. We are seeking a highly organised and committed individual to be responsible for the administration, organisation and management of the Council’s services, facilities and finances as required by Law of a Local Authority Proper Officer.

Ideally you will have experience of working in the Public Sector and you will possess or be willing to achieve the Certificate in Local Council Administration (CiLCA) qualification.

The hours required are approximately 28 – 33 hours per week, flexible over Monday to Friday. Attendance is required at evening meetings (usually on Mondays). We already have a Deputy Clerk who is part-time.

You will need to be enthusiastic and community-focused with sound administrative, interpersonal, financial and IT skills. You will be able to work independently as well as part of a team, working together with the 12 councillors, external organisations and community groups to progress the council’s services and facilities. You will need to have a flexible approach. Much of the role involves the ability to jump quickly and efficiently from one task to another – prioritising the work in order to meet deadlines and taking on ad-hoc duties.

Gerrards Cross is an attractive small town in the south of Buckinghamshire, nestling in the Chiltern Hills and yet only 20 minutes from Central London. The Council manages and maintains two commons and two ponds. It also owns an ancient fort known as The Camp. We have devolved Highways services and work hard to maintain roads and public footways to a high standard.
