Seaford Town Council is thrilled to announce that in December a new Town Clerk will be welcomed onboard.
Following on from a thorough and insightful recruitment process, the Town Council was delighted to offer the position of Town Clerk to local resident, Mr Adam Chugg.
Adam has been Chief Executive of local charity 3VA for 12 years and is a strong leader with a sound background in working with his staff, stakeholders and partners to achieve the organisation’s aims. Adam is fuelled with a passion for Seaford, having a good local knowledge of the town, and its aspirations and needs.
Adam is part of a household committed to sustaining the town, being married to a current Town Councillor. This is not unheard of in parish and town councils across the country and in a professional setting as maintained at Seaford Town Council, the logistics of having inter-personal relationships within a local council as a workplace are easily navigated.
Adam will be joining the Town Council at a crucial time, enabling him to get involved with ongoing projects including; the COVID-19 recovery strategy and planning, the 2021/22 budget setting process and the review of the Town Council’s assets portfolio and Strategic Objectives, amongst others.
Adam says ‘It’s a pleasure and an honour to be appointed as the new TC for Seaford and I can’t wait to get started. I’m looking forward to bringing my wide range of skills and experience and my love for Seaford to the role and working with councillors, officers and local people for the betterment of Seaford.’
Councillor Rodney Reed, Mayor of Seaford, says ‘As a Member of the Personnel Committee I was able to be part of the selection process, where Adam impressed me with his commitment to our town, by his evident high level transferable skills, and by his enthusiasm and readiness to have a leading part of our town's COVID-19 recovery initiatives. I look forward to working with him.’
In what has been a challenging year not just for the Town Council but globally, Town Councillors and staff members are looking forward to welcoming Adam to the team and working alongside him for the continued development of the Town Council on behalf of the town, its residents and visitors.
