This book fills an important gap in the published advice available to the thousands of individuals who act as parish council clerks. It covers all aspects of a clerk#s appointment and duties, from the constitutional role of local councils, through the terms of appointment of clerks, to their day-to-day responsibilities. Practical advice and guidance is given on such matters as preparing for meetings, supervision of staff, finances and most importantly, relationships with councillors. Terms and conditions of employment, qualifications and training are covered, and there is a section on the legal status of local councils. This new edition takes account of the many changes in law and practice since the book was first published.


The role of the clerk. Employment contract and job description. Qualifications, training and skills. The legal status of local councils. Appendices.
