Job information

The Chief Executive has lead responsibility to implement the Council’s policies, ensuring that it delivers to its objectives and duties, within budget, and according to strategic priorities and statutory requirements.

London Borough of Barnet is implementing on its dynamic vision to become an exemplar authority through the development of radically different approaches to serving the needs of its community which are based on the principles of citizen empowerment, a genuinely local focus and long-term economic sustainability.

The Chief Executive will be at the forefront of driving forward and consolidating an ambitious change programme to achieve this objective. Working closely with the Leader, Cabinet and recently appointed Strategic Commissioning Board to prioritise performance at both the corporate and the individual level, this role requires energy, grit, determination and the capacity to inspire, motivate and drive forward the transformation agenda. Commercial acumen is also essential, in order to deliver the substantial efficiency savings required by the fundamental changes in public service funding prompted by the economic downturn.

The Council must work extensively in partnership with other organisations – public, private and voluntary – to deliver high quality, cost effective services that ensure a good quality of life for the residents of Barnet. Therefore, the ability to build, manage and maintain key stakeholder relationships is crucial.

Full information about how to apply, the assessment process and final interviews will all be contained on the Penna micro-site.
