You will also develop and support initiatives to encourage more residents to participate in the democratic process.
Experience of working in Electoral Services is not necessary, we are looking for candidates with excellent organisational skills and a willingness to learn. This role is a politically restricted post due to the nature of the work and liaising with Political Parties, Councillors and Candidates.
During peak periods, such as during an election timetable and canvass there will be a requirement to work additional hours, including evenings and weekends to meet demanding deadlines so a flexible working approach is essential.
