There are around 10,000 councils in England with over 100,000 councillors and of course you will get to work occasionally with the champion of parish councils, Jackie Weaver. They hold a wide range of assets, raise about £600m per annum from residents through a small share of council tax, called a precept and support communities to the tune of around £2bn annually.

The organisation is supported by a network of 43 county associations, independent bodies who support councils on the ground and set their objectives and strategic plan.

You'll get to work with a variety of staff, at national, county and local level, while supporting a number of projects that will not only underpin the organisation’s new strategic direction and help build stronger communities, but also enhance your skills, capabilities and career.

You will support national campaigns, policy development, stakeholder engagement, public affairs, publications and events.

About you
You will have an understanding of and interest in local government and issues affecting local communities, ability to cope with complex situations and to bring an organised approach to manage those situations and the ability to understand and monitor financial information.

The ideal candidate for this role will be open to developing new skills and trying projects and while they may not start the role with skills and experience in all these areas, they will be able to demonstrate their passion and interest and commit to actively seeking opportunities to grow these skills.
