About the role


Bramley Parish Council is seeking to appoint a new Parish Clerk.


Bramley is a village approximate 4 miles south of Guildford in the borough of Waverley and the county of Surrey, with a population of over 3,000.  The council currently manages and supports a range of public facilities and services including a Village Hall, a Sports Pavilion and a Community Library, in partnership with Surrey County Council.  The Council operates from Bramley Village Hall with monthly meetings taking place plus regular sub-committee meetings, with 9 councillor seats.
