WEASENHAM PARISH COUNCIL

Parish Clerk & Responsible Finance Officer

Weasenham is a small village of two parishes with approximately 300 households. Until recently there were two parish councils but following a Community Governance Review these were dissolved and this new Council created. The Council wishes to employ a Clerk/RFO to start as soon as possible.

A contract based on the standard job description, terms and conditions will apply. The salary based on the national Pay scales, will reflect experience and relevant qualifications. The new Council's routine workload has yet to be established, but it is anticipated that the Clerk will be contracted for 8 hours a week. Mileage and other expenses at approved rates will be negotiated with the successful applicant.

The Clerk's usual place of work will be their home, but will include attendance at formal Council meetings.

The Council meets routinely bi-monthly, with additional meetings being arranged, if necessary. The Clerk will need a flexible approach to work to ensure that deadlines are met; some weeks may require more time and others less. Since its creation in May 2015 much progress has been made, however there is still work outstanding to ensure that all its policies and practices are relevant and correct.

The Council would like to qualify for the Power of General Competence so preferably the applicant would be experienced, CILCA qualified or close to qualification (but not essential). They should have good interpersonal and verbal and written communication skills, be computer literate - using word and excel, email, PAYE and RTI and possibly WordPress for the website. The Clerk will have the use of the Council's computer and laser printer.

Further details in relation to the post and the village may be obtained from the Councillor/Clerk Mr Richard Bowyer 01328 838737

Applications with a full CV and details of two referees should be sent to;

Mr R Bowyer, Jannic, Massingham Road, Weasenham, Kings Lynn, Norfolk PE32 2ST
