They are seeking a county officer/co-operative secretary to succeed Russell Reeve, who is looking for a gradual handover to a successor, with support being made available.

Dependent upon the needs of the successful candidate, the board is keen for the role to be offered as a full-time position, but this could be configured to an alternative (part-time) arrangement.

They are looking for a high calibre professional, possibly an existing clerk, who will bring their leadership and management skills, be able to lead a small team and represent member councils both locally and nationally. With a track record of having a customer-focus, influencing, fundraising and delivering projects, you will be asked to help to build on the association’s recent successes.

The successful applicant will be able to provide strategic and operational support to the board to help shape the future of the organisation, and the continued development of its services.

You will find there is a really supportive and highly capable staff team in place.

You will share Norfolk ALC’s commitment to promoting and supporting local councils, local democracy and public service.

The role is planned to be home-based, with some travel to events and meetings.

Norfolk ALC is well regarded by subscriber councils across Norfolk, and our relationships with our partner organisations strong.

For informal discussions on the role please contact Mr Reeve at . Applications should be sent to  and interviews are provisionally scheduled for 29 and 30 June 2021.
