The Governance Team is responsible for managing the processes and systems which one would usually associate with a traditional committee services team but also includes Members’ IT and training, the ethical framework and corporate support.

The service requires an enthusiastic and motivated individual, committed to excellence in their work and with a passion for the political process. The successful candidate will work at the heart of the authority alongside elected Members, senior officers, parish and town councils and members of the public.

The role will involve management of a small team of support officers delivering corporate support and support to the governance function. In addition this role will include servicing the Council’s key Committees (including the Executive and Planning Committee) and managing the Member training programme.

The successful candidate will be a key contact in the Governance Team so will need to be approachable and an excellent communicator, have the ability to solve problems and work under minimal supervision.

They will have extensive knowledge of local authority decision-making together with an ability to approach politically sensitive issues with diplomacy and tact. The ability to use modern IT systems, work to deadlines and produce concise and accurate summaries of sometimes complex issues is a must.
