The Role

We’re Kirklees…Are you? We want Kirklees to be a place which combines a strong and sustainable economy with a great quality of life; a place with thriving communities, growing businesses, high prosperity, low inequality and where people enjoy better health throughout their lives.

We’ve been on a journey over the last 3 years to develop a very different organisation with new and innovative ways of doing things, better collaboration and a workforce with high standards and exceptional behaviours but there is still much more to do.

As our Director of Strategy, Innovation and Planning, you will be pivotal in shaping our ambition for cultural change, commercial thinking and skilled strategic leadership and as a senior professional, you will bring a successful track record in all three.

You will have experience of delivering and transforming a range of functions, plus exceptional drive and resilience. You will be able to set strategic direction and deliver future-defining change.

We’re looking for an influential leader who will build relationships, inspire confidence and develop partnerships and collaboration where and when it matters.
