Salary: Scale Points 18 – 30 (£18,870 – 19,819) (37 hours)


An enthusiastic, efficient and professional Personal Assistant to the Town Clerk, based within the Town Hall; on a six-month fixed term contract.

If you are from an administrative background, with experience in managing diaries, report writing, minute taking, handling calls diplomatically, signposting emails and general administrative functions, then we would like to hear from you.

With a high level of understanding and experience of computer packages, this supportive role requires a dynamic individual who will excel in supporting the Town Clerk in her position as Chief Officer and Advisor to the Council.

The Town Council office handles a significant amount of paperwork, calls and emails each day, as well as numerous reports, letters and meeting minutes which need to be processed within strict deadlines. The Town Clerk is line manager to all Town Council service managers. This demanding role therefore requires a good organiser who can think on their feet and work proactively.

Applicants must be willing to have a flexible approach to work as attendance at some evening meetings with time off in lieu. The post holder will also be supporting other officers as needed as the Town Clerk’s Office is a very small team who work together on a range of projects and tasks.


Application forms are available from the Town Hall or download here: Application Form 2019.doc
