You will be an experienced senior manager with a background in strategy, policy, and programme development. You will understand the complexities of a local authority and our operating environment, but do not necessarily need to have worked for one. Developing strategy will come naturally to you, as will turning policy into action.
You will be a strong influencer; with many of our operational programmes delivered by others, you will be comfortable providing oversight and guidance to indirectly led teams, giving high levels of assurance throughout.
To succeed in this role, you will be a natural collaborator and system leader that is willing and able to build upon our well-established partnerships, ensuring there is collective focus and accountability on delivering positive change and action.
Ultimately, we are looking for you to embrace change, seize opportunities and disrupt what is normal, to deliver positive outcomes for those living and working within the borough, ensuring no one is left behind.
