ABOUT YOUOur Highly Qualified Candidate possesses a strong desire to learn and grow in the role. While experience in municipal or county government, especially within a Clerk’s Department, would be a plus, it is not a strict requirement.

We are seeking someone who exhibits a willingness to take initiative, learn independently, and develop the ability to prioritize tasks and meet important deadlines within the Clerk of the Board office. Effective verbal and written communication skills are important, and we value a candidate who can gradually build a high degree of tact and discretion when working with elected officials, executives, staff at all levels, external agencies, and the public. The capacity to remain calm and polite during challenging situations is highly desirable.

Furthermore, our ideal candidate should be open to learning and adapting to new technologies, as the position may involve the implementation of advanced computer systems to facilitate the job.

This role demands strong attention to detail, particularly as it pertains to accurately processing and maintaining official records. While knowledge of legal requirements related to managing Board records is not a prerequisite, we expect the successful candidate to be resourceful in seeking guidance and utilizing available resources for their work assignments. The ability to conduct research and respond to inquiries from the public or other departments will be gradually developed and supported as part of the role’s growth and development.
