Senior management jobs

Swansea is a remarkable place. One of the most vibrant waterfront cities in Britain, we boast a stunning shoreline, superb countryside and a progressive local authority that is committed to setting an exciting agenda for the city and region.

We want Swansea to be a place that is more prosperous with a skilled and well-educated population, less characterised by the contrasts and extremes of poverty across the city. We want to improve well-being so that communities are safer, healthier, more cohesive and resilient so that everyone can be enabled to fulfil their potential.

The exciting developments planned for the city are matched by changes in the council. Our transformation programme, 'Sustainable Swansea - fit for the future' aims to put the council at the forefront of innovation, as well as tackling the service and financial challenges we face.

Our priorities for 2017-22 that are set out within our corporate plan are:

  • Safeguarding people from harm - so that our citizens are free from harm and exploitation.
  • Improving education and skills - so that every child and young person in Swansea gains the skills and qualifications they need to succeed in life.
  • Transforming our economy and infrastructure - so that Swansea has a thriving mixed use city centre and a local economy that will support the prosperity of our citizens.
  • Tackling poverty - so that every person in Swansea can achieve his or her potential.
  • Transformation and future council development- so that we and the services that we provide are sustainable and fit for the future.

These priorities represent the overriding objectives for the council. Some services will directly deliver these priorities. Others will make a contribution either on their own or by working in partnership with others. 

Swansea's reputation is growing - and it's not hard to see why. We've got blue flags for beaches, top universities and a rising profile in the tourism sector. And as a key partner in a £1.3bn City Region Deal establishes us as a 5th generation digital authority. Our council's on the path to substantial transformation too. But to help further make change happen, we need leadership and vision, robust, high-level support for our member led authority. 

We are looking to fill the following roles, as part of our Corporate Management Team, where you will have the opportunity to bring innovation; enhanced performance and better corporate planning.

Deputy Chief Executive/Director Resources (closing date: 20/07/18)

To succeed, you'll need proven experience in these areas as well as an expert grip of resources. But the key is to forge partnerships and draw on your experience of industrial relations and HR. A steadying influence during periods of change, you'll see the bigger picture and be ready for a challenge.
