Walmer is a thriving coastal community located in southeast Kent. Walmer Town Council is  wishing to recruit a person for the role of Deputy Clerk to the Council. 

The Deputy Clerk will be the office manager and finance officer for the Council, and it is also  planned to be a ‘succession post’. You will receive all the necessary training and mentoring  needed to succeed the current Clerk when he retires as planned at the end of his contract. 

The post will be initially part time (25 hours per week), it is planned that the hours will increase steadily, becoming a fulltime post (37 hours) when the succession from Deputy  Clerk to Clerk takes place. 

The Council is looking for someone who is calm, well organised, and capable of working  within a small team, but having sufficient initiative to carry out some work independently. 

Local government experience is not necessary, as the training programme will give you all  the skills needed to succeed the current Clerk. Typically the role might suit someone with a  background in administration as an office manager, or accounts clerk. A good standard of  education (3 GCSE’s - grade 7 or above in Maths and English or the equivalent) is a requirement. 

The Council will pay a competitive salary for the right candidate and there is a defined  benefits pension scheme available to all Council employees. 

If you would like to be considered for the post, please visit the website for a form, or contact  me by email:
