Haddenham Parish Council 

(4 July 2018)

Deputy and/or Assistant Clerk 

Deputy Clerk:                    SCP 30-34            £27,358 – £30,756 + pension

Assistant Clerk:                 SCP 24-25            £22,401 – £23,111 + pension

Haddenham is a large village in the Vale of Aylesbury identified for significant growth in the new local plan. The number of homes in the village is set to increase from around 2,000 to over 3,000, with around two-thirds of the new homes already being built. With the new development the village will receive substantial funding for new facilities through section 106 funding. This includes sports pitches with associated pavilions, and a burial ground. There is also funding available to improve existing facilities. Since 2015 the Parish Council has signed up to a devolved service agreement with Bucks County Council, this is principally highway verge maintenance, but is likely to be extended to include additional responsibilities from 2019.

The Parish Council is actively planning ahead for this growth and the additional responsibilities it will be taking on and is therefore recruiting for the equivalent of 1FTE to work alongside the Clerk. There is some flexibility to how this role will be filled which is open to negotiation. Applications are invited from those with relevant experience and qualifications who could fulfil the role of Deputy Clerk, or from those who may be looking for a new opportunity and would be willing to learn for the role of Assistant Clerk. Dependant on applications received the role can be filled by one full-time person or two part-time.

This is an interesting time to be joining an evolving team, particularly for those who are looking for a new challenge and potential for career growth.

Closing date for applications: 27th July 2018
