Thank you for taking the time to find out more about these Head of Service roles here at South Derbyshire District Council. 

These will be key appointments for the Council – the successful candidates will ensure that we build on our solid track record of high performance, and continue to review and improve how we deliver services to our community. We are advancing from a strong position, with excellent standards of service delivery and customer satisfaction levels amongst the highest in the country.

South Derbyshire is a vibrant and dynamic district in the heart of the National Forest, and home to sustained economic growth. Major players such as Nestlé and Toyota have committed to ongoing investment in South Derbyshire, and we are fast establishing a reputation as a hub for engineering and manufacturing. Encouraging and managing this growth, while retaining and protecting the rural heritage of our district is a priority for our organisation. 

As you would expect from an organisation in such good heart, we will expect our heads of service to be visible, confident and influential individuals, comfortable working across the Council and in partnership with numerous external partners. If you are ambitious, creative, professionally outstanding, and keen to develop your career at pace, this could be the perfect opportunity.

The council has engaged Solace in Business to support us in making this important appointment. If the role is of interest to you, I encourage you to contact Steve Guest on 020 7976 3311 to discuss the relevant role in more detail.

Good luck with your application.

Frank McArdle
Chief Executive
