Vida’s first role in Local Government started in 2002 when she was employed as an Administrative Assistant involved in the day to day running of a large Parish Council. Her job developed over the coming years and she was promoted to Clerk’s Assistant taking on various new roles and managing projects from start to finish. After 6 years a vacancy for Clerk at Gwinear-Gwithian was advertised and whilst it was a difficult decision for her to leave that role, we’re glad she made the move and brought her wealth of experience to the Parish of Gwinear-Gwithian.
Vida has been in the post of Parish Clerk at Gwinear-Gwithian since January 2008. In that time she has gained a great knowledge of the Parish and the close knit and vibrant community she serves so diligently and well.
