(Temporary in the first instance)

Bingley Town Council wishes to expand its office team by recruiting an administrative officer for 15 hours per week. This will include some evening work and occasional weekend work.

The role of the Administrative Officer will primarily be:

  • To respond to general enquiries from and provide a customer service to members of the public
  • To maintain all administrative aspects of the Town Council’s allotments
  • To administer the Town Council’s monthly market
  • To manage the Council’s communications, social media and website
  • Filing and archiving in the Council’s office.

We will also include other tasks as required to ensure the smooth running of the Council. The job is varied with no two days being the same.
