Bradley Stoke Town Council has begun advertising for a new Town Clerk to replace the present incumbent, David Chandler, who retires in January 2010.
Mr Chandler has been the Clerk since the Council was formed in 1992. At that time, Bradley Stoke had only a few thousand residents and he ran operations from the front room of his home.
An office was established at The Courtyard, Woodlands, in 1993 and this has since grown in size to occupy two units in the premises.
During his 17 years in office, Mr Chandler has presided over a number of major developments in the town, including the building of the Jubilee Centre and the redevelopment of Baileys Court Activity Centre.
Arrangements for advertising the vacancy were discussed at an Extraordinary Meeting of the Council on 24th June and an advert for the job has duly appeared on the website of the Society of Local Council Clerks.
Remuneration will be at the LC3 level of the National Joint Council (NJC) for Local Government Services pay scale, which begins at £32,475 p.a. (2008 rates).
The closing date for application is given as 31st July 2009.
