Pioneering. Confident. Connected. You too?​

The Role

As more and more people encounter the energetic, positive and innovative vibe of Bradford today, so our profile and reputation is growing. Crowned 2018’s Emerging Destination of the Year by the Luxury Travel Guide, we’re breaking down barriers and preconceptions across the full spectrum. And we’re deeply proud of the part that Bradford Council is playing in this achievement.

In common with the whole of civic society, we expect our future financial context to be increasingly challenging. But we’ve created rare strategic capacity for long-term financial planning, restructuring and management. So we’re able to respond creatively and astutely to changing legislation and policy, to address demand pressures affecting key services, and to provide the resources for vital district-wide priorities. Through strong and innovative leadership, you’ll support, advise and enable services to develop a future-proof approach to financial planning.

Alongside an exceptional technical and professional profile, your track record will demonstrate impact at a strategically influential level, and will probably include a significant period within local government. Strong candidates will bring an excellent grasp of urban challenges, public sector finance and leading-edge practice, plus a sound grasp of how to deliver corporate objectives within a democratic context. You’ll relish working at pace within a fast-changing and stimulating environment, and will possess the resilience needed to make lasting progress.

Bradford’s been a defining part of many successful senior careers. Make yours the next. To find out more, visit or call either Mark Tobin (07717 725844) or Stephen Cooley (07747 698829) at Proventure Consulting for a confidential discussion.
