Hilton Parish Council is looking to recruit a Clerk to support the newly elected parish council in effecting change and innovation within Hilton.

You will be an experienced, competent and forward looking administrator who enjoys working providing all the legal and financial support needed by a parish council. You will be personable, outgoing and enjoy engaging with people in the community, with councillors and staff and have excellent written and oral communication skills.  You will be computer literate to a good standard to deal with all office correspondence online and raising the parish council profile through their website and Facebook page.

Although knowledge of the legal framework for the operation of parish councils would be desirable this is not essential as training would be provided.

You will be numerate and have experience of book keeping and be able to manage all the financial transactions of Hilton Parish Council though initially this would be shared with a Responsible Financial Officer.

You will also be responsible for three other members of staff who are also employed by the Parish Council so some supervisory experience would be helpful.

Experience of voluntary work and a strong commitment to local community  would be an advantage.

You would be based in the Parish Council office off Peacroft Lane in Hilton and employed by Hilton Parish Council.

Closing date for applications is 12noon on 24th June 2019.  Please apply via email to clerk@hiltonparishcouncil.org.uk including your Curriculum Vitae and a covering letter showing how previous experience and skills meet the needs of this role.  Names and contact details of two referees must be provided.
