What do councillors do?

Councillors have three main components to their work:

  1. Decision making – Through meetings and attending committees with other elected members, councillors decide which activities to support, where money should be spent, what services should be delivered and what policies should be implemented.
  2. Monitoring – Councillors make sure that their decisions lead to efficient and effective services by monitoring how well things are working.
  3. Getting involved locally – As local representatives, councillors have responsibilities towards their constituents and local organisations.

How much time does it take up?

Quite often councillors say that their duties occupy them for about 2/3 hours a week. There are some councillors who spend more time than this.  Being a community councillor is an enjoyable way of contributing to your community and helping to make it a better place to live and work.

As a councillor representing your community you will help keep it a great place to live and work. You will be an unpaid public servant, but you will be supported in your role and will be expected to undertake training. You should be comfortable working electronically. You should have a positive outlook and a can-do attitude and be willing to work as part of a team.

The closing date for applications is the 8th July 2021
