How much time will I need?

Councillors have to be able to manage their time to be successful. Many Councillors have to manage a full time career along with their job as a Councillor. Many of the meetings set by the Council are in the evenings, however some are held during the working day. This means that the employer must have a good understanding of your role as a Councillor and your responsibilities that go along with it.

Your work as a Councillor will vary from anywhere between 3 hours a week to several hours a day. This will also depend on your role within the Council as those with an executive or a chairing role will have a greater work load.
