Leicestershire & Rutland Association of Local Councils - Deputy Chief Executive (Training & Advice)

Circa £29,000 (pro-rata) depending upon experience.  30 hrs per week (potential to become full-time) & attractive pension (9% employer contribution).

This exciting new role within Leicestershire and Rutland Association of Local Councils (LRALC) is a permanent position and will be a key role in assisting the Association to continue to develop and grow its business activities following our transition to a limited company in April 2018.  The post comes with attractive terms and conditions, including a work place pension. 

The Annual Meeting saw Cllr Wesbury and Cllr Soutter unanimously voted in to the position of Chairman and Vice Chairman respectively.  We also co-opted Jo Day and Erica Coton as Councillors. Jo moved to the parish from Stratford-upon-Avon in October and works as a Health Visitor.  Jo is keen to use the skills she has gained within the local community.  Erica works for Enterprise Inns and is passionate about the area and keen to get to know more of the local residents.  We are delighted to welcome two new councillors and are sure they will be an asset to the PC.  Thank you to all the residents that attended the successful Annual Assembly.
