Job vacancy: Thame Town Council
Thame Town Council is looking for a town clerk to join their team.
Are you a strong leader; do you think strategically; have you built successful organisations; can you communicate well, delegate effectively, and make difficult decisions? Then why not join Thame Town Council? Thame is a high performing council in Oxfordshire, a pioneer in neighbourhood planning, and supports a vibrant high street, a strong community and voluntary sector and a wide range of events and festivals. They are now seeking a dynamic and proactive town clerk who can lead and support councillors and staff in taking us to the next level.
Having recently undertaken an organisational review, they now need to develop and implement a new vision and strategic plan for Thame, engaging across the community, in a diverse range of economic, environmental, and service delivery opportunities. As the town clerk, you will be expected to lead this project in addition to maintaining normal statutory duties and a high level of corporate governance.
The successful candidate will lead a team of 17 staff and work closely with 16 councillors to deliver local services, whilst building relationships across all levels of local government, ensuring Thame has a voice across the region.
