Subject: Election Employment at the Scottish Parliamentary Election

Good afternoon,



With the upcoming Scottish Parliamentary election scheduled to be held on Thursday 6 May 2021, the Highland Councils Election Team are needing to recruit additional people to work at the election in a polling station or at the count.



The ongoing Covid pandemic means we’ll need more staff than usual to run this vital democratic process effectively as there will be more things to do opening postal packs, in the polling stations and the count with more jobs on offer.



Further information can be viewed on the councils website and if you are interested and feel you would like to get involved and play an active role please complete the form online .



Clerks for Opening Postal Votes (based in Dingwall Council Offices)

To assist with the opening of the postal packs from 19th April (daily) for mornings or afternoon sessions



Polling Station Positions

· Presiding Officer - responsible for making sure that voters can cast their vote in secret, free from influence and in a calm atmosphere

· Poll Clerk - assists the Presiding Officers to run the polling station

· Information Officer - greets voters, manage queues and sterilise polling booths and equipment throughout the day

We are looking for applicants to cover polling duties in the three constituencies in Highland:

· Caithness, Sutherland and Ross

· Skye, Lochaber and Badenoch

· Inverness and Nairn

The counting of the votes will commence on Friday, 7 May 2021 and are being counted over several days instead of overnight. This year we have 2 counting venues one being the Highland Football Academy in Dingwall and the 2nd venue at the Inverness Leisure Centre. We are looking to recruit people to count votes. No previous experience is required but you should have basic numeracy skills and good manual dexterity.



The Elections Team need people who will always act impartially, be polite and professional with voters, candidates, agents and other officers.
