A key part of the senior team, you will be a commercial operator - skilled at spotting and maximising opportunities to develop revenue streams, increasing income and profitability and leading service design and improvement.

Driven, with a private sector head combined with a public service heart, you will lead on supporting successful, targeted investment decisions to ensure the delivery of our commercial strategy. Collaboration is key here as you'll work with other senior leaders in the organisation and across the Wirral Partnership to ensure a joined up approach to our ambitions.

Skilled in stakeholder management (internal and external), you're able to balance priorities and deliver on ambitious targets for revenue growth and commercialisation. An ambassador for Wirral, you will manage and develop relationships across the region, and ensure our values are articulated at every point of contact.

With a relevant management degree (or equivalent) and significant experience working at a senior management level, you'll be skilled in developing commercial services and delivering challenging revenue and sales targets. Importantly, you'll maintain an effective performance culture in a large, complex political environment.

You'll be able to demonstrate an in depth knowledge and understanding of the changing public sector context and the 'current thinking' that's proven to be successful.

Our pragmatic, innovative vision: 'The Wirral Plan' strives for outstanding, which isn't easy in these challenging times. We're changing the way we think and act; focused on being a progressive, partnership galvaniser; and courageous in our quest for better solutions outside traditional boundaries.

This role is fundamental to our ability to reshape Wirral. You'll take us to the next level, and create a legacy for yourself in the process. It's a tough environment with complex challenges, but if you're ambitious, driven by the bigger picture and you 'get' public service and commercial principles, this could be the making of you.
