  • To respond to correspondence and enquiries of a more technical, sensitive or complex nature.
  • To arrange the input of computer runs relating to Council Tax and Business Rates and deal with the system reports

The benefits you will experience are…

  • Regular opportunities for development with internal and external training courses.
  • An inclusive and social working environment.
  • Flexible working opportunities including a flexi-time scheme.
  • A great office location next to travel links and the regenerated town centre (The Lexicon).
  • Internal sports and social club opportunities.
  • Discounted leisure centre and gym membership.
  • Supermarket discount.
  • An interest free loan for a rail season ticket.
  • Access to childcare vouchers.

 What we’re looking for…
