With a sound understanding of the need for confidentiality you will be discreet and diplomatic in your interactions with both the Mayor and other attendees of civic engagements.
You will undertake the specialist cleaning and maintenance of the Mayoral vehicle in accordance with manufacturers’ specifications, including maintaining appropriate records to ensure that the presentation is maximised and therefore some knowledge of car maintenance and care is desirable.
You will also co-ordinate and monitor the regular servicing of the Mayoral vehicle to ensure that it remains in a roadworthy condition.
In addition, you will be required to play an active role in Council and Civic occasions by acting as the Authority’s Mace Bearer, and from time to time, the toast master or master of ceremonies.

Due to the nature of the role and civic engagements being held at various times, outside of normal working hours, a flexible approach to work is required.
