Gloucestershire is tomorrow’s county.  We are already a great place for people to live and work.  We have a strong and resilient economy.  Working with our communities and partners we are shaping an ambitious and exciting future that extends better life chances to all our residents and encourages further investment into our flourishing business sector.

Under your leadership, our corporate and support services will be at the heart of the Council’s future focussed transformation, helping catalyse the opportunities presented by technology and securing the success of vital corporate and county wide initiatives.  Building on our strong financial position you will ensure we continue to maximise investment opportunities, income generation and new models of delivery.  You will champion our values and behaviours, taking the lead in embedding an inclusive, positive approach that empowers and equips our staff to achieve the very best, so that working innovatively and in partnership to develop resilient services is second nature.
