Create a legacy

Our County Council is changing at pace to successfully tackle our challenges and capture the opportunities for all our communities in West Sussex. We are more than confident we have the ingredients to succeed. We now need an ambitious, high calibre individual to join our Leadership Team to help shape and deliver our corporate ambitions on behalf of our communities.

During a period of significant and fundamental change, we need strong, experienced, collaborative and cohesive leadership across our organisation. We want to create an aligned group of key ‘enabling based services’ for our organisation and need a talented individual to lead and support, in a single co-ordinated place, our response to the financial challenges we face as an organisation and to effectively support our two externally facing Service Departments, Place and People to achieve their key outcome objectives at pace.

This key senior role will see you providing professional, strategic leadership across the Council, ensuring the organisation benefits from services such as Procurement and Contract Management, Financial Strategy; Risk Management; IT Governance; and Business Support. You’ll report to the Chief Executive and deliver the overall Resources Strategy so we can fulfil our West Sussex Plan.

To join us, you must be an experienced senior leader working for an organisation with similar scope and ambition. You’ll know how to lead resources and corporate services, and how to exploit commercial opportunities. You’ll also bring extensive knowledge of local government finance and an in-depth understanding of financial management. And you’ll be up to speed on service delivery models and the public sector landscape.

With this profile, you’ll have what it takes to deliver transformational change. An inspiring leader, you encourage a culture of continuous improvement based on our values. With the communication skills to give expert advice, influence and build relationships, you’ll lead progress and make sure we’re a Council that works for the Community.
