Further information

Are you looking for a new challenge? Do you have a passion for organisation and for democracy? If so, this might be the role for you. Following the retirement of the current Senior Manager, we are looking for an experienced Democratic Services manager, with a flexible and innovative approach, to manage our small and friendly Democratic Services and Electoral Services teams.

You’ll report to the Director of Law and Governance, and will have experience, not only of management of committee and scrutiny matters, but also of working on or managing elections, ideally with knowledge and experience of the wider electoral process.

It is important that you are a hard-working and highly organised team player, with a strategic outlook, and a desire to modernise and improve services. You need to have a positive attitude, drive and enthusiasm and a commitment to excellent customer service.

You must be able to work on your own initiative, have a methodical approach and a meticulous eye for detail and accuracy. You will be able to cope with challenges, pressure and competing demands. You’ll be expected to work some evenings, to attend Cabinet and Council meetings, and occasional weekends key to the electoral cycle.

You’ll have good ICT skills, and excellent verbal and written communication skills. You’ll also have experience of project and budget management, and ideally a knowledge of modern.gov.

This post is politically restricted within the terms of the Local Government and Housing Act 1989.

North Tyneside Council is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

In addition, staff and volunteers are expected to familiarise themselves with all relevant policies, procedures and guidance in relation to safeguarding children and safe practice with vulnerable adults. Within North Tyneside, safeguarding is everybody’s business.
