We are looking for a new Clerk to the Parish Council and Responsible Financial Officer to support the Council as village housing expansion significantly increases its population over the next few years, to take over from the current Clerk as a result of an unexpected change of location.

We require a resourceful, energetic, committed and well organised individual for this challenging role. Over a 15 hours working week, the successful candidate will be working with a supportive group of Councillors who will also encourage the new Clerk in their continuing professional development. 

A comprehensive handover, and some training for the right candidate, will be provided. The Salary will be on the NJC scale at a point dependent on experience and qualifications 

The job description and person specification can be found below. For an informal conversation, please contact the current Clerk, Max Clay, by email to parishclerk@bacton-pc.gov.uk or by telephone, 07515 33 49 41. 

Applications by letter, setting out how you meet the criteria set out in the Person Specification, and accompanied by a CV, should be addressed to the Chairman, Cllr David Chambers and sent to parishclerk@bacton-pc.gov.uk. The Chairman is also happy to have an informal conversation with potential applicants - contact the Clerk to arrange this. 

The ideal start date would be 1st September 2022 but a later start can be negotiated.
