Big changes. No excuses. That’s what we’re delivering at Wirral Council. We’ve got ambitious targets to meet by 2020. We want to become a connected borough, with digitally enabled residents who have access to seamless and easy-to-use services. We’ll look to you to bring a compelling digital vision, as well as the skills and dedication to make our aspirations a reality.

Wirral is a stunning place. It’s a unique and beautiful peninsula in the heart of the North West, overlooking the world-famous Liverpool skyline and just a short drive from historic Chester.

We’re lucky to live here. Wirral is home to vibrant, energetic and engaged communities, people who take real ownership of their local area and are passionate about making Wirral a better place.

We need an exceptional leader to help us realise our ambitions plans for our community services – they’re a diverse bunch, from leisure centres, to libraries, parks and museums. We need someone with the experience, the commercial acumen and sheer determination to get them right, to meet our residents’ needs in a way which is affordable, sustainable and efficient.

We want someone who can create new models of delivery, someone who can turn the traditional model of delivering old-fashioned services on its head and instead find new ways of meeting our residents’ modern needs.

You’ll get the help you need, but you must be a leader – someone who can bring together our communities and get everyone pulling behind a shared goal.

Sound like you? Tell us why. Bring it on.
