Slough is the town with the population, economy and challenges of a London Borough, the economic powerhouse of the south east and a town where the pace of change is relentless. And that change is happening here at the Council as well as in the town. With a new leader in place we now have an exciting opportunity for the role of chief executive.

This role comes at a pivotal moment for us in our development. We are delivering an ambitious programme of transformation to our services and have in place a challenging and robust five year plan and financial strategy.

We are committed to further improving the stability and potential of the Council and are looking for a chief executive who can deliver inspirational leadership to ensure we meet our ambitions in the challenging financial context that local government operates in.

In addition to a significant track record of achievement in local government, we will expect our new chief executive to continue to raise the profile of the Council and to work closely with the Leader for our communities and businesses. The successful candidate will need proven leadership skills and experience in strategic planning and performance management leading to improved outcomes for local people. In addition, the ability to build and maintain effective relationships with business, government, our partners and other public service providers is essential.
