Job Description:

Glapthorn Parish Council

Appointment of Clerk to the Council & Responsible Financial Officer

We are seeking to recruit a Clerk who can assist and guide the Council in ensuring that Glapthorn remains a great place to live. In 2018 the Parish Council achieved the accolade of Northamptonshire Best Council of the Year in recognition of its energy and enthusiasm in driving forward community initiatives and the production of its Neighbourhood Plan. In addition, in 2019 Glapthorn won the ACRE Overall Best Village Award.

The parish has a precept of £14,658 and the Clerk will be the Proper Officer of the Council undertaking all the statutory duties entailed. The Clerk will also be the Responsible Financial Officer maintaining all the financial records of the Council and ensuring the careful administration of its finances.

The position is part time, approximately 20 hours per month and involves working from home and attending evening and daytime meetings when required. The salary is LC1 Substantive, SCP 7 – 12 (£10.63 to £11.73 per hour), dependent on qualifications and experience. Candidates holding or studying for CiLCA are welcomed although applicants with other relevant qualifications and experience will also be considered. Training opportunities will also be available.

The ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate a good IT, organisational, administrative and financial background with strong interpersonal and communication skills. Sound legal and financial management skills are therefore essential; and we also want someone who relishes challenges, has a “can do” attitude and an enthusiasm for innovation and achievement. You will update and co-ordinate the Council’s website and ensure its success as a valued resource for information, involvement and community well-being across the Parish.
