The post is part time – currently 30 hours per month, and is paid (Salary is based on the pro-rata annual salary of £18070 – £22658 depending on experience). The post includes some evening work and occasional attendance at civic functions. The successful applicant would be expected to have, or be prepared to obtain, CiLCA (Certificate in Local Council Administration). A laptop and printer is provided by the Parish Council.

Applicants do not need to be a village resident, although it would be an advantage.
