289,000 residents and 62 villages and towns.
Ready to be our Chief Exec? It’s all in a day’s work.

Yes, we’re a council, but we face the same challenges every business does – balancing costs and income, investing in the right places and delivering great results. Except it’s all about our 289,000 residents. We’re continually striving to improve their lives and to make Central Bedfordshire a great place to live and work. That’s where you come in.

As our Chief Executive, we know you won’t settle for anything less than what’s right. That’s how you’ll realise our greatness – and your own. You’ll learn from what’s gone before, admire our resilient spirit and make the very best of Central Beds.

With the desire to future-proof us, you’ll shape our 2050 vision. It’s something that everyone will be excited and inspired by. And with a commercial mindset, you’ll balance our costs and incomes and focus on our economic recovery.

One of your main aims will be to generate inward investment, focusing on the growth and regeneration of our homes, schools, businesses and jobs. You’ll also review how services are delivered, maximise tech and apply the learnings from recent challenges. With your expertise, we’ll quickly invite business and investment to the area. Plus, you’ll make big changes that will put the customer first. This’ll see you leading the development of a new operating model.

It’s a big job. But with your impressive background and great financial and commercial acumen, you’ll effectively lead Central Beds. A strategic visionary, you’ll articulate our ambition and passion – exciting everyone about our future. And with excellent leadership skills, you’ll truly inspire confidence and empower everyone. In short, you’ll be bold and challenging, while making sure we reach the very best outcomes.

For you, being our next Chief Executive is all in a day’s work.
