Closing Date 15th of April 2022
We have an immediate vacancy for a Parish Clerk to look after the administration and finances of the Parish Council. The Parish Council has ambitious plans for the Parish and the appointed Clerk will play a full part in realising these.
The candidate we are looking for will be self-motivated, have administrative and finance skills and be computer and e-mail literate. Previous experience in a similar role is desirable but not essential as training will be available.
The work entails dealing with correspondence, arranging Parish Council meetings, attending and taking the minutes for these meetings and discharging Council decisions through, for example, obtaining quotations and issuing purchase orders for services. The finance work involves managing the Council’s income and expenditure including year-end accounting, tax returns and the Annual Audit.
The person appointed will be required to work from their own home and attend Parish Council meetings which are normally held in the evening on the second Monday of each month and occasionally on other dates by agreement. The use of their own transport will be necessary.
The hours of work are flexible and average about 30 hours per month (this may need to be exceeded early on in the appointment due to training requirements, if necessary).
Salary will be in the region of £5,000 per annum depending on experience.
An allowance for broadband, telephone and mileage will be agreed.
Other incidentals such as paper and toner cartridges etc. may be claimed.
If you are interested in finding out more about this post, please contact the current Parish Clerk or Chairman by e-mail when we will answer any initial questions and provide you with a job specification and application form if you wish to apply.
