Job Vacancies

Whitwick PC - Deputy Clerk and Administration Assistant vacancies

Whitwick Parish Council is going through a period of change, and we are now looking to appoint two key posts to support our new Parish Clerk and complete the staff team. Both roles offer attractive terms and conditions and a workplace pension.

These two roles will complete the core staff team, with a focus on good governance, operational delivery, and support for the council's elected members.

Both roles require occasional evening and weekend working, though this will be greater for the Deputy Clerk role. If you are a dynamic individual, with the skills, attitude, and experience required to work in, and support, a councillor led organisation then we invite you to apply to join this ambitious team, working at the heart of the Parish Council.

The continued period of change at the council means that during the first 6 months in post you will need to be flexible in terms of your workplace, with a sizeable element of home working potentially being required during building works. In addition, we will be reviewing pay and pension provision during this period.

Applicants should submit a completed application form with a covering email to clerk@whitwickpc.org , or post hard copy to the address on the application form. For an informal chat about the post(s) please contact the clerk.

Closing date: Friday 28th June 2024.

Interviews will be held on 8th July (Deputy Clerk) and 9th July (Administration Officer) 2024.

Please note, there will be a short computer based test as part of the interview process for both roles.
