Sutton-In-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire
Job Type
Full Time

Ashfield is thriving.  We are proud of our district and our ambition is to be ‘great’ across all our services.   We have already secured over £200m of investment for Ashfield, and we are driving better services and local growth through innovation and by adopting a ‘can-do’ attitude.  The council is financially sustainable and secure, and we are also maximising the benefits of our location - right next to the M1 and sitting between the core cities of Nottingham and Sheffield.

Ashfield is a great place to work and we know that we already excel in many areas, but we want all our services to be the best.  Our Executive Director for Operations will manage four ADs who between them cover a wide array of key front-line waste and environmental services as well as housing operations.   This role is all about ensuring our residents, tenants and communities get the best possible service and that our towns and villages reflect the best of Ashfield.   Our new Executive Director will need to be highly strategic and able to contribute to our broader corporate agendas, but they will also need an unwavering customer focus and the ability to ensure a joined up approach to service delivery.  Candidates will also need high levels of political understanding, with the skills to support our Members’ ambitions for residents.

This is a great opportunity for ambitious and talented people who want to make their mark and who can live our values.   For more information, please see  or contact Luke Judd at Starfish on 07435 270 659 or
