Sunderland City Council
Executive Director of Corporate Services

Sunderland City Council is ambitious. We are a welcoming, international city where people have the opportunity to fulfil their aspirations for a healthy, safe and prosperous future.
To help us achieve this we are looking for an exceptional candidate for this Executive Director post. Reporting to the Chief Executive, you will play an influential role within our strong and effective Chief Officer Group, provide strategic leadership within the council and work collaboratively with our communities and partners – public and private.
The successful candidate will lead and help shape the full spectrum of corporate services which the council needs to achieve its ambitions. This is a broad portfolio which includes finance, ICT, customer services, human resources and organisational development, assurance, procurement, performance and contract management and legal/governance services. If you are a qualified accountant, you will undertake the role of Section 151 Officer, but we are open- minded on this and are keen to hear from candidates from other relevant professional service areas within this remit.

With extensive senior leadership experience in a large and complex multi-disciplinary organisation, you will provide the strategic thinking, challenge and direction to support the delivery of our vision for Sunderland.
