David Stevens, Chief Executive

Welcome

Thank you for your interest in Sandwell and in working for the council.

Sandwell has a £6.2bn economy which is growing faster than the UK average. The council is driving forward and seizing this opportunity with new investments in infrastructure, housing and public services, encouraging an appetite for change in local business and residents. This requires new ways of working, and we are investing and delivering differently, bringing opportunities to local residents, businesses and towns through HS2, the Commonwealth Games, the Metro Extension and more.

Our new corporate plan sets out our ambition to deliver Vision 2030, creating a healthier, more successful future for the people of Sandwell; working as one council and one team with our residents, businesses and partners. We want to create opportunities to put Sandwell on the map, creating a borough where people are proud of the fabric of each of the unique towns that make up the area, have well paid jobs, suitable housing and are supported by increased skills and more opportunities for our young people.

Our ground-breaking Inclusive Economy Deal represents new collaborative ways of working with residents, businesses, the voluntary and community sectors and anchor institutions. The deal works in tandem with the corporate plan and includes our approach to building community wealth in Sandwell.

These two Director roles, reporting to me, are central to the delivery of this ambition for the people of Sandwell. The Director of Regeneration & Growth will lead on strategic regeneration opportunities and the skills agenda, whilst the Director of Borough Economy will lead our place-based operations and neighbourhood delivery agenda to transform services and spaces so that communities can thrive.

To make this vision a reality means exciting times lie ahead for both the council and the new Directors, and it’s a significant time to be joining us. We need inspiring, forward thinking and collaborative Directors, who have strong financial management skills and who can drive performance throughout their teams.

I hope you enjoy reading this recruitment website and I look forward to seeing your application.
