Imagine a diverse town with a strong identity, famous as the friendliest place in the UK where residents are proud to call it home. A town centre that is bustling and is the focal point of our ambitious regeneration plans, a borough that is investing in housing, and an economy that is growing, with connections across the wider region and Greater Manchester. A place that is home to high-quality education, that is investing in infrastructure and employment initiatives, attracting inward investment and providing local people with jobs for the future.  Welcome to Bolton.


Ours is a hugely ambitious and exciting agenda, which makes this one of the most attractive leadership opportunities in local government today. We have come through the pandemic stronger than ever, facing challenges together, and it is this strength that will see us continue to deliver our Bolton 2030 vision, derived from pride in our place and the aspirations of local people, with a simple ambition at its heart; a borough in which our children will grow up in a vibrant place, built on robust cohesive communities, successful businesses and healthy residents.


Supported by a highly capable senior leadership team, colleagues and partners who are proud to work for our borough, you will work with deeply committed Members in realising their ambitions for Bolton. You will represent the Council at a regional level including within the Greater Manchester Combined Authority, developing collaborative relationships to support our local and city region priorities.
