Our Strategic Alliance was formed in 2011 and since then it’s enabled us to reduce our costs and pool our expertise but both Councils continue to face significant challenges and we need to step up to these.

In Oct 2015, we appointed a new Chief Executive who works across the two Councils.With drive and ambition we have achieved a lot in that time and made the most of the opportunities arising from these arrangements. We’ve also made the most out of the opportunities that have come from our location and our relationships with key partners across the Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and the Sheffield City Region.

We’re delivering, but there’s much more to be done. This is a crucial time for the Strategic Alliance and we need leaders who can excel at moving forward our transformation and growth agenda and bring creativity and innovation to the challenges we are tackling. These leaders need a proven track record, but also a desire to grow and learn. You’ll be working with an ambitious and  energetic Chief Executive who will demand results but will invest in your development.

We’ve got members committed to change and who want to make sure we innovate to protect our services and continue to deliver.

It’s a time of change and we need two people who can adapt and who have the resilience to deliver. You’ll need political savvy and a high degree of self awareness but the opportunities will ensure you are part of a leadership team that shapes the future of the two Councils.

You’ll need ambition and passion and be able to cope in a fast paced environment. You’ll be offered flexibility to help shape your role and you’ll be at the heart of defining how the Strategic Alliance goes forward.
