You might not have heard of Gedling Borough Council. But if you haven’t, we would be disappointed and you really should look at the work that we are doing.

We are so proud of what we do to support our local communities, residents, service users and business. Why? Simply because we do it very well. It’s not just us that says that, take our recent work in response to the Covid-19 pandemic where we received national acclaim for our support of the most needy through our “Giving for Gedling” crowd-funding as well as being “first out of the blocks” to set up a meaningful network of support and food delivery.

Of course, we haven’t taken our eye off the ball when it comes to the day job either. Relevant to this post we are still actively and vigorously pursuing our list of ambitious major projects including consideration of how we might best continue to deliver environmental, leisure and community services to ensure that our residents can enjoy good physical and mental health; the continued provision of excellent parks and recreational spaces for local people to enjoy; and the on-going work to ensure that our neighbourhoods are safe, modern, clean, healthy and vibrant places to live and work. The list goes on, but you get the idea.

As our Corporate Director (one of two that work with our Chief Executive to form our Senior Leadership Team) you will lead from the front in the delivery of these and other projects.

We value experience and talent, but we are lean and have no space for passengers. You will need to be hungry to get stuck into the projects that we have and be a visible presence both within the workplace and the wider community.

In short, someone that carries people with them and delivers on tasks. We hope to be able to welcome you into our team.
