Director of Strategy, Change and Resident Engagement

Slough Borough Council
Slough, Berkshire
up to £119,000

Slough Borough Council is never far from the headlines at the moment - the challenges are well documented, but there’s been much less coverage of Slough’s recovery and improvement journey. There is a new corporate plan in place outlining Slough’s commitment to residents, including a determination to close the healthy life expectancy gap and improve the life chances of the borough’s children and young people. There is also a new top team in place – all focussed on turning the council around. Slough has already made some great progress but there are still mountains to climb. That is why the council is looking for an extraordinary group of senior leaders to join them for what will undoubtedly be the biggest and also the most rewarding challenge of their careers.


Covering a broad remit spanning both corporate and resident facing services, this is an exciting new role for the council.  As Director, you will lead on libraries, customer services, policy, strategy, performance and communications.  You will be pivotal to the improvement journey by supporting and holding the organisation to account on its performance and introducing best practice from across the sector.  Your ability to work closely with elected members, the corporate leadership team and bring the resident voice into all that the council does will be key to your success.  This exciting yet challenging role will require strategic and operational grip, ambition and a passion for thinking differently.
