NS6 £20,852 - £22,129 per annum pro rata, pay award pending
29.6 hours per week, permanent
Newark and Sherwood District Council is situated in the historic market town of Newark, in the heart of Nottinghamshire. We’re proud of our vast district and our national attractions including the National Civil War Centre, Newark Castle, Southwell Minster and Sherwood Forest. We’re easily accessible by both road and rail and we boast some of the nicest parks and green spaces in England. We’re an ambitious, forward-thinking Council with strong values and a culture of doing our absolute best to serve our customers.
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Technical Support Officer - Land Charges Address Management in our Planning Development Business Unit. The post will be primarily dealing with the delivery of our land charges service although the successful candidate will be required to cover street naming and numbering and address management functions.
We are looking for a dynamic person who is customer focussed with good IT and communication skills, can work independently as well as part of a team and manage their own workload and time to meet tight deadlines with an excellent attention to detail. You will also need to adapt to changing priorities alongside an ability to engage and work with others to effect positive change for users of the service.
In 2021, the Council successfully migrated our local land charges service to HM Land Registry (HMLR) central digital register. The post is integral to the ongoing partnership between us and HMLR, ensuring the register is maintained and updates provided on a daily. Priorities also include our commitment to deliver and continually improve our service.
We offer a competitive salary, enrolment in the local government pension scheme, flexible hours, hybrid working, a generous annual leave entitlement that increases with service, a whole host of family-friendly benefits, 1 days’ paid volunteering leave, free staff car parking* and £10 gym membership at one of our four gyms in the district. You will be working with a professional, committed and experienced team who are passionate about supporting us to deliver the objectives as outlined in our Community Plan.
