Join our team of Clerks at the Valuation Tribunal Service
The Valuation Tribunal Service (VTS) administers non-domestic rating and council tax appeals and provides general procedural advice on these matters. We are looking to recruit highly motivated and enthusiastic individuals that can rise to the ever changing challenges that face a service delivery organisation in the provision of accurate technical and procedural advice to our users.
Working under pressure is a key requirement as you will case manage a number of appeals, actively managing the parties involved and then attending hearings to act as clerk and provide procedural and technical advice to Tribunal panels. Travel, for which you will receive expenses, is also a key requirement as our tribunal hearing venues are located across England. You must be a confident individual with excellent organisational, time management and customer care skills, in addition to high level communication and interpersonal skills.
Ideally you will already be qualified or part-qualified with the professional examinations of the Institute of Rating, Revenue and Valuation (IRRV). If not, the successful candidates will be expected to commit to study to achieve the IRRV Technician qualification ideally within a 2 year period or at least to have made sufficient and significant progress in that time.
In return, we offer a competitive salary ranging from £25,944 to £41,595 (dependent on achieving the full corporate IRRV qualification and based in our London office) and £22,401 to £38,052, if based elsewhere (again dependent on achieving the full corporate IRRV qualification). We will consider home-based working for those applicants with excellent knowledge in all areas of our work after a period of training. We also offer membership of the Local Government Pension Scheme and 25 days annual leave, which starts from 1 April each year.
