Penarth Town Council is to make a further staff appointment following the engagement of several new members of staff already taken on this year.
The latest vacancy about to be advertised is for a “Civic Services Lead” – the duties of which an internal council report says will include “day-to-day management of the general office, democratic services of the council.”
The post-holder will also work with another member of staff called the “Customer Services Lead” to “promote the town council and its events” – including “the Summer Festival , Christmas event and Picnic Penarth” .
The ‘Civic Services Lead’ is also to work on “the development and improvement of the council’s engagement with its community , manage the planning consultation process and will work on “future town-twinning links the council may make”. The salary is £23,935-£25,694 pa.
A further post called a “Development and Innovation Assistant” is to be filled “in the near future”.
The council claims these are posts are already accounted-for in its new staffing structure but which – until now – have been frozen.
All Penarth Town Council’s income is derived from the town precept included in council tax which is now at a record high.
