You’ll know if this is for you. Our story has been well documented; our challenges and opportunities are equally significant. We’re the largest council in the country, a council in a unique position.

You’re an experienced CEO, confident and successful, who’s already delivered significant outcomes in the public sector. You will need to be able to operate in the national and international spotlight and be willing to work at the cultural and organisational changes we need to improve our services and impact. You’ll be strong on corporate governance and comfortable dealing with complex budgets, financial challenge, improvement goals and new delivery arrangements. You’ll approach every opportunity with an inventive mix of strategic and operational expertise.

Birmingham deserves a council that meets our residents’ needs and supports the City’s impressive potential. We are the second City, we’re a place of contrasts with some wonderfully diverse communities – we hope to host the Commonwealth Games in 2022, on a global stage.

You need to be able to build strong relationships with elected members and staff as well as creating and building strong partnerships that support community assets, community cohesion and inclusive economic growth. You care about delivering great things for the people and City of Birmingham and you’re ready to make a commitment and earn their respect.
