A rare and exciting opportunity has arisen at Stapleford Town Council, for somebody to join our team as Town Clerk & Responsible Finance Officer for Stapleford.

Stapleford Town Council is a progressive gateway Town Council in Nottinghamshire, within the Borough of Broxtowe. It is overseen by 18 councillors, including the Town Mayor, across three Parish Wards.

Responsible for looking after the day-to-day running of the Town Council, you will have a demonstrable ability to manage and prioritise a large and varied workload.

The successful candidate will be prepared to be the face of the Town Council in the local community, building relationships with local organisations, and be passionate about engaging with people, working first and foremost in the interests of the public, staying politically impartial at all times.

Whilst most of your hours will be office-based during the week, you will need to be flexible to attend events outside of your normal working hours including occasional weekends. You will be required to work one evening per week to accommodate Council & Committee meetings, which you will be responsible for clerking, and being open to the public.

We are looking for someone with at least 2 years’ experience in a similar senior role with knowledge of Local Government processes and procedure. Preferably CiLCA qualified or in progress / willing to undertake this qualification within 12 months of starting employment. As you would be the Responsible Financial Officer for the Town Council, this role would ideally suit somebody who has a background in business or office management or working in a financial setting. Experience of payroll procedures, financial management and budget setting is a must. You will need experience in leadership, staff development (along with evidence of commitment to your own professional development) and be able to demonstrate a willingness to learn. Above all, you need to have the desire and motivation to help us take our Town into the future!
