The position is unpaid and includes approximately 11 meetings a year, depending on the level of involvement. You would be required to demonstrate all the standards of behaviour that are reasonable to expect of someone in public service.

What we can offer is the chance to work with a varied group of people in a non-political atmosphere, the opportunity to practise your skills outside your normal home or business context, an insight into the workings of local government, and above all the potential to make life in Brailsford & Ednaston better in some way.

  • 18 years or older on the day you become nominated for election
