Bickleigh Parish Council Clerk Vacancy

Bickleigh Parish Council is seeking to appoint a motivated, dynamic, and forward-thinking individual to the role of Clerk to the Council and Responsible Financial Officer.

Based from our office in Woolwell, the Clerk is required to attend Parish meetings, some of which are held in the evenings. The post is 70 hours per month, but flexibility is necessary in line with workload. 

It is essential that the applicant can communicate well at all levels and has a good grasp of Office 365. We are looking for an effective communicator with a positive and professional attitude. Strong administration skills are also a key requirement including accurate minute taking, preparation and monitoring of budgets and managing the Council’s assets and finances. The role requires an ability to work on your own initiative, demonstrate attention to detail and have good organisational skills in order to ensure the smooth running of the day-to-day activities. 

Salary will be in line with NALC guidelines and according to experience and qualifications. Candidates would ideally have Local Government experience and hold CILCA qualification, however training will be provided.
