If you are looking for a role to lead one of the fastest-growing districts in the country, in an area that is filled with stunning rural beauty and steeped in fascinating history, then look no further. Tewkesbury Borough has it all, and we’re looking for a new chief executive.
We are a really ambitious council in everything we do, and nowhere is this more evident than in our approach to placemaking. Alongside major growth in strategic sites across the borough, we are also home to two Garden Communities - Tewkesbury Garden Town and the Golden Valley near Cheltenham.
These exciting new developments will see the creation of new sustainable communities with supporting infrastructure, in great places.
High-quality service delivery shaped around our customers’ needs is really important to us, and we invest in wide-ranging partnerships to help us deliver this. We have 10 public sector partners working together at our headquarters; our Public Services Centre. Here, our joined-up approach sees us deliver collaborative, end-to-end services for our residents, especially our most vulnerable. Our award-winning Growth Hub is also on site to support business development to drive our successful economy, and our in-house Business Transformation Team is recognised nationally among our peers for delivering impressive online services.
With all of this in mind, we are looking for an innovative leader with proven placemaking credentials to be our chief executive. You will share our ambitions, provide inspiring leadership for our council and our partnerships, and help us to create the great environments our residents and businesses deserve.
We are looking for someone very special and welcome applications from current or aspiring local authority chief executives, and also from candidates who are able to demonstrate relevant leadership experience in other fields.
