Clerk Vacancy

Part Time Clerk & Responsible Financial Officer

Currently 18 hours per week plus an additional 3 hours per week (as necessary) to administer the council’s 2 charitable trusts.

Starting salary will be in accordance with national recommended rates for SCP 24 (£33,024 pro rata) and dependent on experience and qualification.

Mawnan Parish Council is looking for a highly organised and patient applicant to take over the day-to-day organisation and management of the Council’s services, finances & administration. They will also be working as the Burials Officer for the parish and be responsible for the administration of 2 playing field charities, overseen by the parish council,  as well as managing the parish council website and social media presence.  The intention is that this position will see the clerk working from new parish council offices, based at Mawnan Memorial Hall.  

The Clerk is expected to attend all meetings of the council and its committees (11 full council + 5 Office & Finance committee) held in Mawnan Smith, providing agendas and taking minutes/notes as appropriate for general circulation.

Time management is essential, as is the capability of working alone and unsupervised for the majority of the time.  Otherwise applicants will need to be enthusiastic, flexible and community-focused with excellent administrative, inter-personal, accounting and IT skills, in order to work successfully with Councillors, external organisations and the wider community.  They will also have to have a hands on approach as this post involves undertaking outdoor H&S site checks.

Ideally the candidate will already possess the CiLCA qualification and have an understanding of local authority organisation and management. 

We anticipate interviews taking place sometime in mid April and hope to contact everyone shortlisted during the week of 8th April with arrangements.
