Job Title: Democratic Services Officer

Working For: Lambeth Council

Location: London

Salary: £34,128

Job Details

Lambeth is a dynamic and exciting borough that stretches from the banks of the Thames opposite the Houses of Parliament to Streatham and West Norwood in the south, via the South Bank, Clapham, Brockwell Park, iconic Brixton and the UK’s busiest station at Waterloo. With over 320,000 residents, bustling markets, iconic venues and public events across our town centres, the borough is home to diverse, strong and engaged communities.

We are looking for a confident, articulate person to join our Democratic Services Team. Working at the heart of the Council’s decision making process, you will be required to attend a range of formal Member level meetings (some of which are held in the evening so flexibility for evening work is required) and undertake all the associated tasks relating to the management of formal (and informal) meetings, including preparing and publishing agendas, reports and minutes. You will work closely with elected Members and senior officers, providing professional advice on democratic, governance and constitutional issues.

You will be highly organised, able to work flexibly, customer focused and be adept at meeting demanding deadlines in pressurised circumstances, possess excellent communication skills (both verbal and written) and excellent IT skills. Candidates must be able to demonstrate innovation, ideally in respect of modernising decision making processes in a local authority context. Experience of the Modern.Gov or any other committee management system would be highly advantageous.

Closing Date: 27 February 2020
