Neath Town Councillors are volunteers and do not receive any payment or allowance for their work. They are bound by a Code of Conduct which requires them to act selflessly, objectively, within the law and to give assurance for the proper use of public funds and assets.

Every year, one Councillor is elected by the other Town Councillors to be Neath Town Council Mayor to act as the civic head and first citizen of the town.

Councillors meet every a month to discuss business at its main committees. However in addition some Councillors sit on a number of operational related Committees which also meet monthly to carry out more specific and often in-depth areas of work.
