This is an exciting time for an ambitious and visionary leader to join South Tyneside and really make their mark.

The Council has undergone significant change over the last year, with new political leadership and a significant shift in how the Council operates.

The Chief Executive will be responsible for shaping and directing the delivery of the Council’s Futures programme, which includes significant economic and regeneration projects, further integration of local health and social care services and South Tyneside’s successful economic, social and environmental recovery post Covid-19 and EU Exit.

South Tyneside MBC certainly punches above its weight when it comes to ambition - and the Council is looking for an inclusive, dynamic and experienced senior leader to lead the Council through its next phase of delivery for its 155,000 residents. The size and geography of the Council will enable the new Chief Executive to make immediate and significant impact, and he/ she will lead a high performing organisation which is driving forward a range of exciting initiatives, with an experienced and motivated team.
