We are recruiting!

Communications and Projects Clerk

Up to 22.5 hours per week on a flexible arrangement to suit the right candidate

Salary SCP11 (£22,129 per annum pro rata / £11.50ph) plus pension and training

Permanent position subject to satisfactory probationary period

Ingatestone and Fryerning Parish Council require a first-class administrator to assist the Parish Clerk in meeting the Council’s statutory obligations including servicing of meetings, public relations, social media presence and project management.

In addition to daily administrative responsibilities, the Communications and Projects Clerk will have direct responsibility for the Council’s social media accounts, e-newsletter, and paper newsletter.  You will also work with the Communications Committee, creating agendas and minutes and acting on the committee’s decisions.  The Communications and Projects Clerk will also take the lead (but will be assisted) in organising village events (e.g., litter picking, community picnic) and undertaking specific projects to enable the Parish Council to achieve their published action plan.

A strong administrative background with experience of dealing with members of the public is essential, along with a good knowledge of MS Office, social media platforms and website management.  Experience of organising events would be of benefit; enthusiasm is essential. Training could be provided for the right candidate.

This is an exciting and wide-ranging role within the lowest tier of Local Government that offers variety, challenge, and professional development.  It would ideally suit someone looking for a part time position within the local community.

Interested?  Please contact the parish clerk in the first instance for an informal discussion, application form, person specification and full job description.

Ingatestone and Fryerning Parish Council are committed to equal opportunities and welcome applications from anyone who feels that they would fit the job.  We therefore invite applicants to inform the clerk if any reasonable adjustments for any part of the recruitment process are required.

Closing date for receipt of applications is the 30 September 2022.
