Are you an innovative, people oriented leader, with vision and ambition?

We have an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated individual to join our team as a Chief Officer and contribute towards the next exciting stage in West Dunbartonshire’s evolution.

At West Dunbartonshire Council, we always strive for excellence and in recent years have undertaken a range of bold and exciting projects revitalising our area with recent examples including the transformation of the waterfront at Clydebank, development of the pioneering District Heating Network, and launch of our award winning offices in Dumbarton as part of our ongoing commitment to regenerating our town centres.

Reporting directly to the Chief Executive, this role offers an exciting opportunity to support the Council’s commitment to improve the quality of life of West Dunbartonshire citizens and make a real difference.

This is a critical role (detailed profile attached), working within an agile leadership framework, supporting the implementation of creative and innovative strategies, policies and leading edge practice.

The post-holder is responsible for the strategic leadership of Citizen Services, Facilities
Management, Performance and Strategy, Libraries, Arts and Heritage, Communications, Office Accommodation and the Clydebank Town Hall. The post-holder also monitors the performance and delivery of services provided by West Dunbartonshire Leisure Trust on behalf of the Council.  If you have a proven track record of success within a complex, multi-agency and political environment, will embrace our people centred, value based approach to leadership, we want to hear from you.
