Kirklees is firmly focused on the future. Our vision is to create a district with a strong, sustainable economy that offers a great quality of life to its residents - leading to thriving communities, growing businesses, high prosperity and low inequality, and where people enjoy better health throughout their lives.

We are currently looking to recruit a new Head of Service to join our senior leadership team and lead our Procurement and Commissioning Support functions. As we move to become a commissioning council, your role will be to bring together the service, working across the council to ensure effective use of resources and deliver value for money services.  The successful candidate will arrive at a hugely exciting time for Kirklees – with a new Chief Executive in place, we are determined to reshape the organisation and seize the opportunities ahead.

Candidates will need senior experience and a successful track record in one or more of the service areas within the function, as well as the ability to develop our ‘commissioning for outcomes’ agenda. Just as important will be your values, attitude and approach, and the ability to work collaboratively with members, colleagues, partners and local businesses to ensure that our residents receive the best possible life chances and excellent services.

For further details please contact Jodi MacDougal (0113 205 6093) or Gary Evans (0113 205 6080) of GatenbySanderson or visit www.kirkleesleadership.com
