What rules apply, if any, to the function of a Clerks Management Team and the make-up of such a team?

It sounds like another term for a committee. I would anticipate the team would need to be nominated and voted on with a clear remit such as a terms of refference for a Committee named as such, otherwise it sounds far too informal and could cause an issue over the decisions being made and if they are actually binding.

You are either referring to the Personnel / Staffing committee or a team of staff that the clerk oversees to undertake Council business.  Which one?

Thank you both for your answer. The Clerks management team was formed 2 years ago and consists of the Chair (Mayor) HR Panel Lead and one other Councillor. Note the Council operates through Panels and Task and Finish Groups.

Last nights meeting did not come to a conclusion because Councillors (many voted in last year) have not yet seen the TORs. It would appear that the CMT helps the Clerk with any issues arising (but we shall see).
The decision meeting on this has been deferred.
