Job Title: Executive Assistant to the Leader of the Council

Working For: Cotswold District Council

Location: Cirencester

Salary: £30,825 - £32,300 per annum

Length of Contract: Permanent

Job Details

The Cotswolds is a great place to live, work and visit and at Cotswold District Council we’re committed to doing our part to help make it even better for everyone.

To make a dent into some of the big challenges facing our area we’re seeking employees with unique identities, backgrounds and perspectives who want to tackle some of the big issues our area faces and truly challenge the status quo.

The Council’s administration is committed to rebuilding the council after years of austerity so we can be proactive and responsive to the challenges presented by COVID-19, the climate emergency and the housing affordability crisis.

The Council Leader provides leadership to the council and its political administration, with overall responsibility for the vision and corporate objectives of the organisation.

We’re looking for someone who will support the leader not only in his role as Leader of Cotswold District Council but also supporting him in his role as Vice Chair of the Local Government Association.

Being close to the heart of decision making you’ll ensure the leader is well organised and briefed as he navigates the highs and lows of the political environment. This will require good humour, versatility and resilience as at times the role will be stressful.

You’ll also be the first point of contact for many residents trying to contact the leader and affect change, so the right candidate needs to be passionate about our aim to make the area an even better place to live, be patient and understanding.
