Strategy and Democracy Support Officer
(Town Hall, South Shields)
£27,041 pa

Fixed Term Contract for 12 Months

An exciting position has arisen in our Strategy and Democracy Team. You will work collaboratively to deliver a high standard of committee administration and governance support services for the organisation and its Elected Members, ensuring that the Council complies with statutory responsibilities.

We are looking for an enthusiastic team player who is highly organised and has experience of working within a busy environment. Ideally, candidates should have a good grounding in committee and governance work and be able to contribute effectively to South Tyneside Council’s decision-making processes. However, the ability to plan effectively, multi-task and juggle priorities, work accurately under pressure and operate efficiently are all important skills and specific governance or committee administration experience is not therefore vital.

This is as re-advertised post, previous applicants need not apply.

Closing date: Noon, Friday 24 September 2021.
