New Clerk Handover Check-Sheet

Time Published 14 July 2021

SLCC Advisory Service has launched a handover check-sheet to support clerks who have recently started in their role.

Feedback from members prompted the creation of the document and it has been developed by the Advisory Team and SLCC branch members. The model document, suitable for local council officers in England and Wales working for councils of all sizes, provides a checklist covering:

  • People to contact
  • Key actions on your appointment
  • Important documentation
  • Financial administration
  • Personnel
  • Training
  • Passwords and files
  • Facilities and service administration
  • Allotments
  • Cemetery
  • Community Hall servicing
  • Buildings (testing and certificates)
