The Parish Council is looking for a new Parish Clerk

We are looking for a committed person to partner the Councillors and other local organisations to maintain our high levels of governance, community leadership and service delivery. Ideally you will hold the Certificate in Local Council Administration, but the Council will support applicants who do not already hold this qualification to complete the course in the first year.

The Clerk organises and attends the monthly meeting on the last Tuesday of the month, producing the agendas and minutes, acts on the Council’s decisions and handles all correspondence and will, therefore, need excellent communication, administration, IT and written skills. In addition, the Clerk manages the budget, financial accounts, PAYE and prepares the accounts & governance statement for audit.

Tatenhill & Rangemore Parish is in the heart of the Staffordshire countryside, within the National Forest and 3 miles from Burton-Upon-Trent. It is made up of Tatenhill and Rangemore villages and a large rural area. Businesses include St George’s Park Football Academy.

We are proud to have been the first local council in Staffordshire to achieve the gold standard of the national Local Council Award Scheme. Recent projects include updating our Neighbourhood Plan and installation of the first phase of a major traffic calming project. The Council is ambitious to build on its recent success, including by developing Prince’s Wood, its 15 acre community woodland.

Tatenhill & Rangemore Parish Council aspires to be an Equal Opportunities employer, community leader and service provider.
