Job role
Head of Service
Contract Type
Full time

South Derbyshire is a beautiful and successful place, with a thriving visitor economy alongside an expanding business sector, and more and more people every year choosing to make our busy market towns and friendly villages their home. And this change and improvement is rooted in a deeply-held, shared set of values: a rich and continually-renewed story of ourselves.

This role is an extremely attractive opportunities to play a part in the future of South Derbyshire. We want to hear from credible people who can offer expert advice across their portfolio: proactive, ambitious, and happy to be visibly accountable for the success of the services you oversee. In either case, you’ll need substantial senior experience in the relevant service area, plus a track record of measurable achievement – and candidates who can show they’ve taken an active approach to CPD will be at an advantage. You’ll be a natural leader, but will grasp the vital role of collaboration in delivering the bigger picture. A track record of innovation will be tempered by an acute understanding of how to manage risk: you must ‘do the detail’, and be able to bring others with you. Political awareness and a commitment to communities are essential.

The rewards of living and working in this stunning, flourishing and well-connected part of the world speak for themselves; but perhaps equally important is the career boost that these exceptional roles will offer.
