Director of Corporate Resources and Organisational Change

Central Bedfordshire Council

It’s time to deliver change and drive innovation
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.
About the role
In the words of our Chief Executive, our ambition is to become “a modern council that understands and adapts to the changing needs of our residents, communities and businesses to deliver great outcomes that enable our people and places to flourish.”
With this in mind, we know that we are at the start of something brilliant. Our cross-council organisational change programme will see us becoming increasingly customer centric, responsive and delivery focused – and ultimately help us deliver better outcomes for our residents. While the change agenda will be embraced by our Chief Executive and all our Directors, you will play a crucial role as our Director of Corporate Services and Organisational Change in delivering the programme which will touch every part of the organisation.
As part of this, keeping the council at the forefront of innovation and technological solutions while championing a ‘one council’ approach will be at the heart of this role. Ultimately, you will ensure that the council is using its resources effectively and delivering the agreed outcomes of corporate change plans and priorities. 
About You
We’re looking for a Director of Corporate Resources and Organisational Change who is committed to delivering innovative outcomes, collaborating with others to create resource efficiencies, and inspires a culture of continual improvement. Someone who will steer our major organisational programmes at pace and oversee people and change management, while planning and deploying resources to deliver key priorities for the council and our people.
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.
