Would you like to become a casual Support Steward for Frome Town Council?

At Frome Town Council, our aim is that everyone is as proud of Frome as we are and as a casual Support Steward, we hope that you will be able to support our vision.

We are looking for exceptional people to form a bank of casual staff that we can call on sometimes at short notice, to support the variety of events supported and hosted by the Town Council and staff at our increasingly busy Town Hall. As a Support Steward, you may be asked to work hours during the day, in the evenings, weekends and bank holidays.

You will need to have a friendly and helpful manner with excellent people skills.

When supporting events, you will be friendly and welcoming to any event attendee. You could be working across the town, outdoors or indoors. The event could be anything from a street party to an event in the park to a book signing at the Town Hall.

When you cover Reception in the Frome Town Hall you will be the welcoming face of the Council, be responsible for providing access to facilities within the building and may sometimes work alone. Desirable for some events (but not essential for all) would be computer literacy and administration skills.

Frome Town Council, as a Real Living Wage Employer, pay Casual Stewards £10.90 per hour – the rate set by the Real Living Wage Foundation in November each year – plus holiday pay related to hours worked. You will work alongside a successful and driven team of Council employees.
