Wiltshire Council – Empowering People, Innovation and Collaboration

Wiltshire’s commerce and geography is as diverse as it is unique, with a mix of rural communities and market towns.

In 2017 we developed an ambitious 10 year business plan and in order to deliver our key priorities we have increased the capacity in our senior leadership team.

In this new role you will be provided with the opportunity to create and deliver our vision to create strong communities, protect the vulnerable and grow the economy in Wiltshire.

This new post will navigate the changing education landscape and ensure effective relationship management with a range of partners, stakeholders and businesses, recognising their different priorities and coordinating a shared vision for the future.

You will relish the opportunities created in this post to see beyond just the need to have high quality schools, colleges and higher education provision but also the crucial link to having the right skills in our communities to provide the skills that Wiltshire businesses need, encourage more young people into the work place and ensure we keep unemployment figures below the national average.

This is a superb opportunity to be at the heart of one of the most exciting and forward thinking Councils in the country.

Closing date: Monday 28th May 2018
