The Isle of Wight Council is seeking to appoint a committed and enthusiastic person to the excitingIsle of Wight logo new role of Senior Elections and Local Land Charges Officer (Career Graded).

This position has been created in order to develop an individual who has the necessary qualities, drive and attention to detail needed to aspire to manage the team, following a development and succession plan. The criteria for the post are rigorous, and the rewards and progression reflect this.

This position offers a career opportunity that enables the successful candidate to be appointed to a position with an obvious profile in the council and exposure to political leaders. It offers a real opportunity to work at the heart of the Council’s democratic and regulatory process, and to also make a significant difference to the lives of all our residents.

Applicants will be educated to level 4 standard in a relevant subject such as business administration, electoral services, or able to demonstrate equivalent experience. The ability to interpret maps at various scales would be useful, but not essential. You will, initially, receive training in all aspects of Local Land Charges and Elections work. However, significant investment will be applied to your personal development, leading to the eventual support of a degree-level qualification, alongside skills such as organisation, people management and communication. As part of this development plan, you will, on occasion, be required to attend mainland based Local Land Charges and Elections courses.

You will be confident, well organised, of smart appearance, able to work occasionally flexible hours (including evenings and weekends) and demonstrate discretion and confidentiality at all times. The Council will enrol you as a member of the Association of Electoral Administrators, and you will enjoy corporate membership of the Local Land Charges Institute.

In return we can offer you a comprehensive benefits package including flexible working (subject to service requirements), a local government pension scheme, 31 days annual leave, employees discount benefits and access to a range of technologies to support modern ways of working.
