Salary: £112,462 – £123,706

Derby City Council is transforming. We’re proud of what we’ve achieved so far and well placed to make the most of our opportunities to counterbalance the challenges that all of local government is facing.

The Role

We’re looking for an inspirational leader to work alongside the CEO and directors. You’ll have an extensive cross-council role alongside leading the teams in your Corporate Resources directorate and working closely with councillors. Your track record will demonstrate impact at both strategic and service-based levels, and an exceptional grasp of public sector reform, innovation and leading-edge practice.

You’ll need drive, credibility and integrity and be able to make things happen in a large, complex, political organisation. As our CFO (s 151), you’ll need to be a qualified accountant of course.

We have a great team spirit, an appetite for innovation and a determination to do the best we can for Derby.

Derby is an attractive place in which to live, work and relax. Our sporting, shopping and cultural facilities combine with our world heritage site, the historic Cathedral Quarter and award winning parks. These are complimented by the stunning villages and stately homes of Derbyshire to ensure that Derby offers the best of vibrant city and country life.

If you’d like to have a confidential discussion about this role, please call Carole Mills, Chief Executive on 01332 643554.

You can also contact the current post holder, Don McLure on 01332 643377.
