Corporate Director (Section 151 Officer)

Package: £94,422

Fenland District Council is an award winning organisation, set in the heart of beautiful rural countryside and close to London, Cambridge, Peterborough and the North Norfolk coast. Our positive ‘can do’ culture enables us to continually punch above our weight and empower staff to go that extra mile in delivering important services for local people.

Here at Fenland we are enthusiastic partners of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority, the only two tier devolution deal in the country. We are confident that this revolutionary way of working will help us to grow the district and provide further exciting opportunities for our residents and businesses.

We are looking for a successful and experienced Corporate Director (Section 151 Officer) to join our highly performing organisation. The successful candidate will report to the Chief Executive as a member of our Corporate Management Team and have the opportunity to lead a range of different services and corporate projects.

You are a qualified accountant; however your challenge will be to bring so much more to the role, such as taking a lead role on transformation and creating financial sustainability within this innovative environment. We have been shortlisted for the LGC ‘Efficiency’ Award twice, which is evidence of our strong financial and efficiency track record to date, something you could be part of.

This is a fantastic opportunity to take on a portfolio of varied responsibilities and further progress your career including the opportunity to deputise for the Chief Executive at set times.

So if you would like to be part of a positive, forward thinking organisation, supportive of growth and embarking on an exciting devolution journey, we would like to hear from you.

For an informal chat please contact: Paul Medd, Chief Executive on 01354 622202
