Assistant Mayor’s Chauffeur, Attendant and Macebearer (Annualised hours – at least 100 hours per year)

£16,491 - £21,268 per annum pro rata, dependent upon experience

During their year in office, the Mayor and Deputy Mayor of Solihull attend around 600 engagements. From Solihull, to the wider West Midlands and further afield, you’ll make sure they get there safely.

You will be a member of a small, dedicated team responsible for assisting the Mayor’s Chauffeur, Attendant & Macebearer. Duties will include everything from making sure the appropriate insignia is worn, through to receiving guests and announcing their arrival. At certain occasions, you’ll even find yourself acting as Macebearer and MC for an event.

Driving the Mayoral cars calls for early starts, late finishes and working on any day of the week, including weekends and Bank Holidays. It’s a vital role, on which diverse audiences depend.

To qualify, you’ll need a full and valid driving licence, plus experience as an excellent VIP chauffeur. You’re confident driving large vehicles, including a 4 wheel drive, and you have the ability to lift and carry the 2.5kg Mace.

Committed to achieving high standards in all you do, you are very organised yet flexible, and able to change plans at short notice. It is your communication skills that really set you apart, whether you are making public announcements or having a professional conversation with Members of Parliament or the Royal Household.

So if you’re ready to combine an incredible quality of life with a rewarding role – and you’re passionate about what the Mayor does for our communities – get in touch today.
