Job role
Contract Type
Full time


Here at Bridgend County Borough Council, we’re putting our communities at the centre of decisions about services. Through extensive collaboration and encouraging local people to take ownership of more aspects of community life we are committed to changing how we deliver services, to ensure a sustainable and high-quality model, where the focus is on the things that matter most to our residents.

This is a role that demands strong operational leadership credentials. You’ll lead a broad range of place-focused functions and a large staff group, to ensure high quality outcomes in some our most visible services. But this role is about much more than the logistical demands of such an environment. It’s also about looking to the future and reimagining how such services can be delivered – exploring new technology, new models of working, and even more collaboration with other organisations and our community.

It’s likely that your background has focused on leading large and complex operational services. You’ll also be able to demonstrate your appreciation of the corporate leadership agenda – working across services to deliver on overarching strategic priorities.

Visit to find out more or contact Evelyn Dougherty at Solace in Business for a confidential discussion on 020 7976 3311.

Closing date: 8 November.
