Due to the retirement of the present Clerk, an exciting opportunity has arisen to join Folkestone Town Council as the Town Clerk/Responsible Financial Officer.

This is an opportunity for someone with enthusiasm, energy and commitment to join a local government organisation in a senior role, working with our experienced team who have a high level of expertise in their individual roles.

The ideal candidate should have good people skills and the necessary ability to manage the organisation, leading and supporting councillors and staff in taking us to the next level. Experience of working in Local Government would be an advantage, but equally so could the possession of a skill set that lends itself to our personal specification.
