Parish Clerk Vacancy

The Parish Council, which meets 10 times each year, is seeking to appoint a Clerk and Responsible Financial Officer to provide professional support and guidance in respect of all aspects of the Council’s work.

Apart from attending the 10 evening meetings, the position is home based, and the estimated 15 hours of work per month can be scheduled to suit the successful applicant. Responsibilities include preparing agendas and minutes; maintaining accounts; ensuring that all legal, statutory, financial and other governing provisions relating to the Council are observed; and maintaining the Council website to ensure that is complies with government requirements.

Previous experience in a similar role would be preferred, and this position might suit a clerk in an existing role elsewhere who wishes to extend their working hours. Training and career development will be encouraged, and a budget is available for computer equipment. The salary will be dependent upon experience, but in the region of £10.00 per hour (SCP 18-20).

Further details are available from the Vice-Chairman, John Durrant, on 01451 824193 (durrantjohn.durrant@gmail.com). Information on the parish and its community can be found on the village website www.greatrissington.org.
