East Knoyle Parish Clerk Needed


Owing to the current clerk’s change of personal circumstances, East Knoyle Parish Council (EKPC) is seeking a Parish Clerk/Responsible Financial Officer, starting September 2022.

This is a part-time job for a small community that could suit an existing clerk, someone with local authority experience, and/or business administrative experience and ready to learn the legal and local authority requirements for which training will be given. Councillors are active in their support to the clerk and take on ad hoc projects themselves.

The ideal candidate will be personally committed to community work, have the appropriate diplomatic skills and maturity, and an ability to get things done.

Knowledge and familiarity with East Knoyle, pop. about 700, and its setting will be an advantage.

The role is part time paid 20 hours per month, with extras as required, and working primarily from home. Remuneration will be in line with the good mix of skills and experience which are sought and will be based on the NALC pay scale.

Monthly parish council meetings are held in the evening. Work peaks at the time of council meetings, and at the financial year end, but otherwise can be carried out flexibly to suit other commitments.

If you would like an informal discussion about this role, or to apply, please contact Tim Hyde (Chair) tgrhyde@gmail.com or the current Clerk Marisa Allen marisaallen@ymail.com

The closing date for applications is Friday 22nd July and interviews will be held soon after.
