Divisional Director Neighbourhoods & Sustainability

Thank you for your interest in working for Glasgow City Council.

The information in this microsite is intended to answer any questions you may have about the work of the Council and the role of Divisional Director. If, however, you have any unanswered queries, or you would like to find out more about what is involved please don’t hesitate to contact Catriona Mackie at Aspen People, on 0141 212 7555.

The public sector continues to face a number of challenges and ever increasing customer expectations requiring more innovation than ever before on how we deliver efficient and effective services to our communities across the city.

We are looking for an exceptional candidate to join our Directorate who will be responsible for the delivery of business critical and wide ranging services including key statutory frontline operations.

We have recently introduced a new ‘Neighbourhoods and Place’ model to facilitate greater management within community planning areas while engaging with external partners to provide tailored operational services that meet the needs of local communities. This new model has initially focussed on operational services to align with other area based Council services and promote a ‘One Glasgow’ approach to service delivery.   

The successful candidate will also continually identify, develop and implement further programmes of service innovation within the operations environment and drive improvement in efficiency and performance and as such we require a dedicated leader with the skills and authority to challenge existing organisational boundaries and working practices to drive change and devise new service operating models. 

This post requires an exceptional candidate who is a skilled communicator with drive, proven managerial experience at a senior level in an operational environment and who can engage positively and effectively with managers across the service to implement reform. It also requires an understanding of working in a political environment and the ability to develop effective working relationships with Elected Members and external organisations.

If you think you have the skills and personal qualities to meet this challenge and share our values and ambitions then we would like to hear from you. 

Thank you for your interest in the role and we look forward to considering your application.
