Full time

Oadby and Wigston is a borough that is continuing to thrive and develop, developing our communities and economy, enabling and shaping growth and delivering services to our customers to the highest standard. Providing Excellent Services is one of the councils three new corporate priorities for 2019 and we are continuing to work to ensure that we provide excellent services, both on the frontline and in the ‘back office’.

Our council is one that has a sound financial footing, and it is looking secure this footing further, whilst simultaneously improve our services and widen our delivery options – something that underpins our new 5-year Corporate Plan. We have ambitious plans to improve our already green borough, encourage businesses, both new and established to work in our borough and improve the lives of our communities.

We are looking for a Chief Finance Officer that not only fills the statutory Section 151 Officer role but work with elected members to take our organisation to the next level. You will be part of a team that works especially hard to deliver the council’s objectives where our values are being lived and our staffs’ dedication is exemplary. We are a council that continues to evolve, never rests on its successes and learns from where it has not succeeded, and as a result we can deliver fantastic services and make great things happen.

Oadby and Wigston is a great place to live, work and visit and our council is a great organisation to work for. We empower our employees to be creative in how we deliver our services, and this delivers fantastic outcomes for residents, businesses, partners and visitors alike.

If this opportunity excites you and you have the qualities that can bring you success in this role, lead the organisation in delivering our vision, get in touch with our retained consultant Anna Jay at Public Leaders Appointments for a confidential conversation: or 07904 236 348.
