Lois Wakeman to retire after seven years in the post
Uplyme Parish Council is looking for a new part-time clerk.
After seven years in the role Lois Wakeman is to retire and says she is hoping to spend more time with her husband, camera and pottery - “in that order!”
She sais “The Council is a good employer and I shall very much miss working with them and local residents, but the time has come to pursue other interests while I still have the energy to do so.”
“Uplyme Parish Council is therefore looking for a part time Parish Clerk and Responsible Finance Officer - which is one post – 15 hours per week including some evenings. The hours are flexible but you will need to be available for meetings at fixed times. Salary is in accordance with NALC & SLCC recommended rates, minimum £9.90/hour, starting 1st April 2016.
“The Council needs to find a good communicator, administrator and manager to support the work of the parish council, working from home, self-motivated, and ideally with a good working knowledge of Microsoft Word, Excel and Outlook. Training and qualification will be offered.
The closing date for applications is February 15.
