The Council has a track record of transforming services through partnership and has a mixed economy of service provision.
Our Chief Executive is retiring this summer and we are seeking an ambitious leader to work alongside elected members and partners. You will continue to oversee service improvements, as well as delivering further significant development opportunities.
Burnley is always in the spotlight and you will need to demonstrate that you are ready to take on this demanding role and have a proven track record as leader with senior management experience within a comparable organisation.
