Parish Clerk vacancy
Unfortunately, due to personal circumstances, the recently appointed Parish Clerk has resigned and therefore, once again, Waltham St Lawrence Parish Council is inviting applicants to apply for the position.
We are a small but active Council and are looking for someone who will enjoy supporting us to achieve our aim of being effective representatives and delivering value to our community. The Clerk is the Proper Officer of the Council and, working from home, is responsible for preparing agendas, recording minutes and organising the Council's day to day administration. The applicant must have good organisational, communication and IT skills. The Clerk is required to attend 12 evening Parish Council meetings per year (normally held on the first or second Tuesday of the month), an Annual Parish Meeting (in April) and such other Council meetings as may be decided. The hours are expected to average between 35 and 50 hours a month depending upon experience.
The role is ideally suited to somebody seeking a part time role or complimenting an existing part time role due to the flexibility of the timing of input required (with the exception of meeting attendance). However somebody in full time employment would be considered if they could demonstrate their ability to undertake the role in addition to their full time employment.
The starting salary will be determined according to experience and qualifications. The salary range will be from £5,250 per annum whilst working towards a qualification, progressing to £6,250 depending on experience and qualifications, the top end representing the CiLCA qualification. A qualification would be valuable but is not essential and we would encourage and support the successful applicant in training and to work towards a qualification.

Applications in the form of a covering letter and a short CV should be submitted by Friday 27th October 2017 to the Chairman of the Parish Council, preferably by email or by post (see inside back cover of the Lych Gate)
