Pendle has the best of both worlds, with stunning open countryside and iconic hills dotted with peaceful villages and vibrant towns but also great connections to Manchester, West Yorkshire and the rest of Lancashire.

Alongside the appointment of a new Chief Executive and with a new Administration and Leader in place, the Council is looking to recruit a progressive Chief Finance Officer to strengthen our financial position and prepare us for the changing landscape of local government.

As the Section 151 Officer, you will be the principal advisor to Council on all financial matters but also a member of the Corporate Leadership Team with responsibility for developing our commercial strategy and managing our key external contract for corporate support functions.

We're looking for a technically able candidate with a high level of experience working with Members to explore the art of the possible and a track record of building effective relationships with a wide range of internal and external stakeholders.

This is a turning point for the Council and a wonderful opportunity for an innovative, aspirational and ambitious candidate with a record of success in local government to lead and support us on the next step of our journey to create opportunities and prosperity for the diverse communities we serve.
