Corporate Head: Resources
This role is all about enabling our services to deliver. You'll bring significant governance experience, because we'll expect you to lead on our legal and democratic services; but you're also responsible for finance, so must be comfortable leading our entrepreneurial approach and ensuring we use our resources wisely. Our people also come under your care, so we will look to you to ensure that our approach to people management is leading-edge. You may take on the role of S151 or Monitoring Officer, depending on your specific experience.
This is a demanding role that requires a highly developed and versatile skill set. You should be able to demonstrate a track record in delivering at a senior level and assure that you can make the connections between strategic ambitions and delivery on the ground. Forward looking, you will have excellent people skills, be politically savvy and be an excellent ambassador for our council. And it’s essential that you can demonstrate the personal presence and professional credibility to quickly win confidence and trust with a range of stakeholders.
