The role itself as a result will require clear and strong stakeholder management and excellent communication skills, as well an acute understanding of the practical challenges faced by service-delivering public bodies. The Council has a passionate and ambitious leadership team and fitting together the local priorities with the boarder ones will be a key aspects of the impact you will need to make. While the blueprint is already in place, the unique challenges that will arise will need a practical and sometime innovative response.
We’re looking for a unique mix of experience – as well as having some Council exposure (or broader recent public sector experience as a minimum) you will also have some expertise in the effective structuring of small businesses –whether already independent or becoming independent from a larger group. You will have lead programmes and small teams before, and understand the impact and challenges of large scale change.
The role is offered on a day rate or fixed term basis for the next 18-24 months. The shortlisted candidates will submit a tailored resume which demonstrates all of the following in recent roles or assignments:
- Involvement in the establishment (or change) of infrastructure to one or more small businesses
