The Role

Chief Executive
c. £100k

This is an opportunity for an innovative Chief Executive to join a modern, forward-thinking Borough.  We collaborate closely with local institutions, we create progressive partnerships and we are exploring major development opportunities, ranging from housing for University professionals and students to retail development right in the town centre.

Your vision will help to drive these plans forward. Within a Council that has the sense of purpose to make decisions quickly, you will help to establish new ways of working, identify new opportunities and build a culture of continuous improvement. At the same time, this is about so much more than simply pointing others in the right direction. As a leader and motivator, you will also be focused on delivery. On time, on budget, ensuring that our Council delivers on every promise, every time.

We are looking for someone who has a proven track record of managing budgets, delivering high quality services and maintaining a high level of innovation. You will need to be visible, credible and determined to see exciting projects translate into real initiatives. Where required, you will also have the commitment to efficiency required to identify cost-reduction opportunities, add value and ensure that we work within clear financial parameters.

Our goal is to set the benchmark as an agile, innovative, ambitious council that can embrace change quickly. If you have the skills to lead us forward, we would like to hear from you.
