Locum & Interim Services

Need someone to stand in temporarily?

The LCC Locum service is delivered by our team of clerks all of whom have worked within local councils. Our locums are employed by SLCC and we invoice your council for the number of hours worked at the agreed hourly rate, enabling the council and locum to comply with HMRC off-payroll rules. The rate charged is inclusive of Employers National Insurance, our payroll and handling costs and a payment for annual leave, making the locum process easy for you to manage. Depending on the hourly rate, the locum would charge LCC, costs range from £25 to £40 per hour (an all-inclusive charge).

Contact locum@slcc.co.uk today to discuss your requirements.

Mentoring LCC

“I’d like to say thank you to both the LCC and Jane who helped us out of a tricky time when we found ourselves without a Clerk over the Election period. Despite the Locum service being fairly new we received a very professional service from start to finish.” Emma Harris, Flitwick Town Council RFO and HR Officer

“Tracy acted as Locum Clerk for Bingley Town Council at a time of massive change in staffing. She was the consummate professional and managed the period of transition skilfully. Her depth and breadth of knowledge in local government and local council policies and procedures was second to none. Her advice and counsel was invaluable and delivered with warmth, empathy and good humour, enabling us to manage difficult situations well. Her advice and support to council members and new members of staff was useful and relevant. I would highly recommend Tracy as a consultant.” Helen Owen, Bingley Town Council Chair
