Corfe Mullen is a large community situated in East Dorset, north of Poole, with a population of approximately 10,140 living across 4290 properties. The village is set in the green belt, encouraging many outdoor activities and enabling excellent recreational facilities for residents and visitors alike.

The Town Council is a democratically elected body of 14 Councillors, supported by a team of 3 officers and a grounds team. It has a key role in promoting the town, facilitating town management and providing community leadership. The Town Council is also responsible for the provision and maintenance of 44 acres of recreation ground including various sports pitches and a sports pavilion, 11 acres of open space, working
with Dorset Wildlife Trust and several small communal areas, such as three play areas, a MUGA and skate park. Corfe Mullen also has two cemeteries, Chapel, and a war memorial along with 96 allotment plots.

The Town Council is also the sole trustee and oversees the day-to-day management of Corfe Mullen Village Hall and Corfe Mullen Youth Trust. These are valuable services provided to our community.

An opportunity has arisen to appoint a Deputy Clerk, due to the current postholder stepping back to spend more time with her young family. We are seeking a person with the necessary skills, qualifications, experience, political awareness, sense of humour and ability to support the Town Clerk at an operational level and to assist the administrative officers on a day-to-day basis.

The successful candidate will preferably have local government experience; however, this is not essential and a willingness to undertake study for the iLCA qualification in the first 12 months, with further study to achieve the CiLCA qualification within 3 years.
