NLA: Administrative and Marketing Assistant

A vacancy has arisen for the position of a Full Time Administrative and Marketing Assistant working within Stoke Gifford Parish Council. Information about the Parish Council, along with a job description is detailed below:


Parish Councils are the first tier of local government and the closest to the community they serve. As a tier of local government, they are elected bodies, with discretionary powers and rights laid down by Parliament to represent their communities and provide services for them.

Stoke Gifford Parish lies immediately north of Bristol to the west of the M32 and south of the M4 motorway. The parish's 1717 acres comprises Stoke Gifford, Little Stoke, Harry Stoke and Stoke Park and has twelve elected councillors to serve its 11,500 inhabitants.

Stoke Gifford earns its place on the map not only via its history which can be traced as far back to 1085 AD via entries in the Doomsday Book, but contemporarily by important transport routes, educational establishments and businesses sited within the parish.

The parish holds Bristol's second railway terminal, Bristol Parkway Station, which is an important commuting point for trains plying both local, Great Western and Cross-Country routes.
