We are transforming the way we work to create a single unified officer core, to work with both of our Councils. This is an ambitious partnership which is good for both Councils, good for our residents, good for our staff and could also be good for you.

As a Director, you will join us right at the beginning of our journey, as we pursue a radical change programme to combine the resources of our organisations so that we can achieve more together for our communities. There is considerable scope and autonomy for you to influence the direction we take, to get us to where we need to be.

You will work closely with the Chief Executive, Strategic Directors and Directors to ensure that the Council’s objectives are promoted and implemented through developing appropriate strategies and policies, translating these into effective action. As a People and Governance professional, you will be educated to postgraduate level or equivalent by experience.  You will have significant post qualification experience gained in the public, private or voluntary sector, including experience of operating at Leadership Team level.
