Warwickshire County Council

Strategic Director Communities

Salary to £143,593 + relocation package

Warwick

Warwickshire is famous the world over as Shakespeare’s county— but that’s only half the story. We’re also vibrant and modern. One of the fastest growing commercial regions in the UK, we’re home to many leading companies and developing exciting opportunities for everyone who lives and works here.

The impact of population growth, increased service demand and changes to local government funding is well evidenced. To respond to these challenges, we have developed a new operating model designed to enable the delivery of our corporate outcomes and focus the whole organisation on a single strategic direction. The result will be needs focused, efficient and integrated service delivery which reduces demand and increases our financial sustainability.

Key to delivering this new approach will be having the right senior leadership capability and capacity in place; a team that enables a commissioning driven organisation focused on reducing need, delivers lean and efficient services and increases income through commercialisation. This is where you come in.

We are recruiting to two Strategic Director roles; one to focus on corporate resources, commissioning and commercialisation; the other on our economic growth ambitions and sub-regional place-shaping agenda. Both offer the opportunity to do things differently and push traditional boundaries; be it using our asset base more creatively or developing new traded services. These are not business as usual roles.

If you have transformational leadership experience and the desire to make a real impact in Warwickshire, we would like to hear from you. Please visit www.leadwarwickshire.co.uk or speak to Nick Cole, Director, Local Government at Veredus on 07736 491804.
