Are you looking for a new challenge and the opportunity to be involved in the democratic process of a local authority, then this could be the role for you!


We are looking for a candidate who possesses strong communication skills and has experience of dealing with complex/and or demanding responsibilities in relation to governance processes, formal decision-making Committees and queries from Elected Members, with minimal supervision.  The Council has just moved towards a Committee style form of governance so the successful candidate will be pivotal in embedding the system into Council processes.

What we can offer you:


  • We are a highly effective, capable yet friendly team
  • Working to a hybrid working arrangement with flexi time for evening meetings attended
  • Committed to developing your personal and professional development
