Can you help?

The Duror and Kentallen Community Council is looking to recruit a new minutes secretary.

A community council is a voluntary organisation set up by Statute by the Local Authority and run by local residents to act on behalf of its area. As the most local tier of elected representation, community councils play an important role in local democracy. Community councils are comprised of people who care about their community and want to make it a better place to live.

The secretary is a key role and ensures the smooth running of the community council by organising meetings, coordinating the agenda and keeping minutes and records. The community council is consulted on any planning and licensing applications and the secretary is responsible for communicating these to the council.

The secretary also ensures effective communication between committee members and our police liaison officer, the Highland Council, and members of the community.

The person we are seeking would be familiar with managing mail groups, word processing, and scheduling meetings online. Increasingly community councils use social media, so it will be useful for you to be familiar with the simple administration of Facebook pages and publishing minutes and agendas onto our web site. Therefore, some basic web skills would be useful.

It is an ideal opportunity for you to get to know your neighbourhood community and how local democracy works.

The council usually meets on the second Monday of the month between 19:00 and 20:30 and as secretary you would organise and attend these meetings.

A small payment is available and any expenses incurred are refunded.

If you're interested, please contact Geoff Nix: geoffrey.nix@btinternet.com.
