Town Clerks Office



Personal Assistant to the Town Clerk



Full Time  (Fixed Term - 12 Months) – 37 Hours per week



Grade 4 - SCP 12-14 / £16,123 - £16,781 pro rata
















Newquay Town Council has a vacancy for an enthusiastic, efficient and professional Personal Assistant to the Town Clerk, based within the Town Clerk’s Office; covering for maternity on a 12 month fixed term contract. 

If you are from a business/office/administrative background, with experience in managing diaries, report writing, minute taking, handling calls diplomatically, signposting emails and general administrative functions, then we would like to hear from you. 

With a high level of understanding and experience of computer packages, this supportive role requires a very dynamic individual who will excel in supporting the Town Clerk in his position as the Proper Officer, Head of Paid Service, Responsible Finance Officer, Designated Safeguarding Officer and lead advisor to the Council. 

The Town Clerk and his office handles a significant amount of paperwork, calls and emails each day, as well as numerous reports, letters and meeting minutes which need to be processed within strict deadlines. The Town Clerk is also line manager to all Town Council service managers. This demanding role therefore requires a good organiser who can think on their feet and work proactively to support the Town Clerk in driving the Council forward and improving services for the Newquay ratepayers. 

Applicants must be willing to work during evenings with time-off in lieu, as most committee meetings take place during a weekday evening. Most committee meetings are scheduled in advance, every other month and so the successful candidate will be aware of when most meetings are for the year. The post holder will also be supporting other officers as needed as the Town Clerk’s Office is a very small team who work together on a range of projects and tasks.
