Full time

Telford & Wrekin has a history of ambition and innovation. Home to the historic World Heritage site of Ironbridge, the birth place of the industrial revolution and, today, one of the fastest growing boroughs outside of London with an unmatched reputation for attracting inward investment and growth.  Two thirds of the borough are rural and offers unrivalled access to green space whilst Telford town centre is a regional destination offering burgeoning night life and a retail offer second to none.

Telford & Wrekin Council is equally ambitious, being one of the first authorities to move to become a “commercial Council” to secure income to protect investment in our frontline services. This investment has seen both our children and adult safeguarding services ranked as “outstanding” by OFSTED and the CQC. We are an authority that works hard with, and for, our local community to get things done and make Telford a great place to live.

Following significant investment into the Policy & Governance directorate, a number of vacancies have arisen within the Legal & Democracy Team, one of which is an Elections Team Leader

Reporting to the Democracy Manager, the post-holder is responsible for the management and leadership of the Electoral Services Team in Democratic and Legal Services, to plan, manage and support the Returning Officer in the delivery of all elections and referenda in the Borough, in an efficient and professional manner, and to support the Electoral Registration Officer by ensuring that the register of electors is complete, up to date and complies with national guidelines.
