Wiltshire Council – Empowering People, Innovation and Collaboration

Wiltshire’s commerce and geography is as diverse as it is unique, with a mix of rural communities and market towns.

In 2017 we developed an ambitious 10 year business plan and in order to deliver our key priorities we have increased the capacity in our senior leadership team.

In this new role you will be provided with the opportunity to create and deliver our vision to create strong communities, protect the vulnerable and grow the economy in Wiltshire.

This role is integral to our modernisation approach, leading on the strategic development of our finance, procurement and pensions functions and teams.

These teams are already well established but we are keen to further develop our commercial approach to procurement, ensuring it is consistently applied across the organisation, able to support local businesses, and enhance social value.

Your strong public-sector finance experience and understanding of procurement will drive and guide our approach to enhance our systems and financial literacy throughout our organisation as well as our partnership and stakeholder networks.

This is a superb opportunity to be at the heart of one of the most exciting and forward thinking Councils in the country.
