To support this agenda we are now looking for exceptional candidates for this newly created Executive Director post. It will provide strategic leadership within the council, report directly to the Chief Executive and play a key role in the council’s Executive Management Team.

The Executive Director of Corporate Services will define, transform and lead the corporate and support services that the council will need to fulfil its duties and responsibilities for 2020 and beyond. These services will include financial management, commercial finance, ICT, customer services, human resources and organisation development, assurance, procurement, performance management, contract management and legal and governance services. If they are a qualified accountant, the post holder will undertake the role of Section 151 Officer for the Council, but we are also keen to attract candidates from other relevant service areas.
