Doncaster’s on a journey of lasting change. We have a robust plan, we know where we’re going, and we’re achieving real progress.

Enabling Doncaster to thrive requires collaborative, cohesive leadership, and our new Director will be pivotal in enabling and deploying resources throughout the council and beyond to deliver lasting and meaningful results.

A key member of the Corporate Leadership Team, you’ll share collective accountability for our core purpose – to ensure there is a strong local economy where everyone is better off, and that we maximise the value of the resources we have.

As the strategic lead for our resources and assets, you’ll provide high-level financial and performance guidance to the Mayor and Council, as well as leading on strategic HR, digital, legal and performance matters. Your ability to work effectively with colleagues and our partners, as we develop ways of working through a period of unprecedented evolution and opportunity, will be vital.

We’re open to a range of professional and sector backgrounds, but your career to date must include substantial senior leadership experience, managing cross organisational strategic change and commercial thinking.

An understanding of the deployment of resources to enable growth in all its forms is essential.
