Being able to pro-actively manage, motivate and support the Council’s maintenance and service delivery teams is a core part of this role.
The postholder will oversee significant revenue budgets and will play an important role in developing and delivering the Council’s planned maintenance programme, as well as facilitating the procurement of external services and management of contracts.
The postholder will be a senior member of the Council’s management team and will be expected to advise the Council on, and assist in the formation of, overall policies and the strategic direction of Council services under his/her management. This includes producing all the information required for making effective decisions, and then implementing constructively all resolutions made by the Council or its committees to ensure that the organisation achieves its aims and objectives.
