Job vacancy: Oswestry Town Council
Oswestry Town Council is looking for a town clerk to join their team.
Oswestry is a traditional market town on the Wales / England Border with a population of 18,000. With the pending retirement of our long-serving town clerk, the council is seeking to appoint an experienced and innovative town clerk, with suitable experience, to take responsibility for all aspects of the management, functions and responsibilities of the council. Their current budget is in the region of £3.5m.
Candidates must have a sound knowledge of local government legislation and procedures, hold a relevant professional qualification and the successful applicant will hold the Certificate in Local Council Administration (CiLCA). The council also holds the General Power of Competence and wishes to do so in the future and therefore a suitably qualified clerk is essential.

It also delivers a service level agreement for a national organisation in terms of their administration, finance and delivery of national and regional conferences.
