Are you looking for your next career move? Are you interested in leading a small but busy Governance Services team in improving the council’s constitutional and decision making processes? If so, we'd like to hear from you!

You will play a significant role in providing expert advice to support the work of councillors and colleagues across the authority.

We are looking for an exceptional communicator with considerable committee administration experience. You will be an innovative thinker and a strong leader who is able to prioritise work, meet deadlines and work under pressure.

We are entering a new and exciting period, implementing an extensive modernisation agenda which requires a creative and dedicated manager to develop new and efficient ways of working.

This role requires someone:

⁃ Educated to degree level or with equivalent relevant experience
⁃ To have substantial experience of local government democratic law and the political decision making process
⁃ Who has experience of leading, managing and motivating a small team
⁃ Who is flexible with the ability to attend regular evening meetings

We pride ourselves on our commitment to our people. We strive to ensure each and every employee feels valued and happy in their work. Our #OneTeam approach relies on each and every person to work collaboratively to deliver shared goals.

The ability to converse at ease with councillors and members of the public and provide advice in accurate spoken English is essential in this post.

Assessments will be held on 30 January 2020.

Interviews will be held on 3 February 2020.
