Job Details

Central Bedfordshire Council has been on an incredible journey since its formation in 2009. Alongside enviable service improvements we have become a leaner and more efficient organisation, with an agile and empowered workforce. We’ve built and grown sustainably and put the Council on a firm and stable footing, which will allow our communities, businesses, and people to thrive. Our strategic plan reaffirms our values and focus, and we are now seeking three inspirational leaders who share our ambition.

There has never been a greater need for us to work corporately across the council, with other local authorities, wider partnerships, and with our communities. Our children’s services are performing well, and as a wider council we are implementing a bold plan to reset how we operate internally and how we engage with our customers, making the best use of technology to free up our skilled workforce to focus on what they do best; making a real difference. We’ve also made a lot of exciting capital investments, and been very successful in bringing external funding which is opening up a diverse set of opportunities and which will help to define our future growth.

You will be joining an ambitious council, with a friendly and collegiate culture, who have been successful in delivering innovation and different ways of working. If you share our ambition to truly put Central Bedfordshire on the map, then we would love to hear from you.

Closing date: midnight on Sunday 2nd June 2024
