Parish Manager Vacancy

This has meant that the Council has taken on more resources both employed and contracted to assist with the delivery of these services. The Council have ambitious plans to further expand the services and social projects we can offer in the upcoming years and we are looking for someone to head up a strong staff team of 5, who will work effectively with councillors, partners and the community to enable the Council to continue making a positive impact to help us deliver on our pledges.
