Working as a member of a service shared across two councils, you will lead and drive change and transformation, supporting the councils and their staff to deliver even better outcomes for residents. You will get involved in a wide variety of work from developing strategies through to undertaking service reviews to make sure we’re always looking ahead, making the best use of technology and operating as efficiently as possible.
You will be excited by building new teams and programmes of work, using your technical knowledge and creativity to find solutions to complex problems. You’ll need to be good at prioritising a varied workload and be experienced at providing information to senior officers and members.
