East Grinstead Town Council is an effective authority with a proven track record of service delivery and community representation. The Council is seeking an exceptional individual to lead the organisation forward in the next stage of its development, which is likely to see enhanced devolution from other tiers of local government against a backdrop of local authority financial pressures.

The role of Town Clerk requires robust executive leadership, sound financial and administrative skills, a clear understanding of the local council sector (the first tier of local government) and an ability to work with the Council’s political leadership at all times in the interests of the community.

The role of Town Clerk is a rewarding and fulfilling one, requiring an individual who is adaptable, flexible and committed to excellence in developing and delivering services in the community.  This is a full time role and will be expected to be worked fully in the office during an agreed induction period before flexible arrangements will be considered.
