The Lord-Lieutenant may appoint whichever person of standing and integrity he wishes to be the clerk of the Lieutenancy. In many areas the role is normally filled by the senior officer of a local authority if he/she is willing to undertake the duties. Much day to day work may in practice be delegated to another employee of the Local Authority.


The Clerk to the Lord Lieutenant for Mid Glamorgan is Ceri Dinham the Communications, Consultation and Engagement Manager of Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council.
