Thank you for your interest in working for
Cranbrook Town Council.

We are currenlty looking for a part-time Finance Officer to join our team.

Cranbrook is a town being developed from scratch in East Devon on land which used to be green fields. Construction works started in 2011 and during the following year, the first residents moved in. In early 2021, the town had grown to approximately 6,000 residents occupying 2,300 or so properties. The current Local Plan which covers the period until 2031 and makes provision for the delivery of circa 8,000 homes housing in the region of 25,000 residents – so Cranbrook will be at least a medium-sized town and probably the second-biggest settlement in the whole of Devon.

Our new Finance Officer will support and assist the Council to fulfil its statutory duty to keep proper accounts and records, and to maintain appropriate control over the collection and expenditure of public money.
