Welcome from the Council Leader and Chief Executive

Dear Colleague,

Thank you for your interest in helping us to keep improving outcomes for our residents and delivering our vision; where opportunity is extended to everyone, where people can grow, flourish and prosper, and where no one is left behind.

Within Rotherham, we are proud of our industrial past but ambitious about our future. Rotherham is continually evolving, from our world class Advanced Manufacturing Park and investment opportunities, to a new University Centre, town centre regeneration plans, and beautiful places to spend leisure time such as Wentworth Woodhouse, Clifton Park and our country parks.

Our improvements are delivering positive outcomes for our communities. Our planning service is rated the best in the Country and is a vital part in the town’s growth with over 1000 new homes and exciting plans for major town centre regeneration. Our economy is the fastest growing in Yorkshire and Humber and attracting global brands such as McClaren and Boeing.

We are committed to improving the environment and this year we are making significant changes to our waste collection services. This will support our drive to improve recycling and we have over 30,000 people recently signing up for paid-for garden waste collections. We have a strong commitment to increased use for enforcement to support behavioural change and have made significant improvements to taxi licensing, with one of the most stringent policies in the country.

This commitment to improving the environment extends to making best use of our community assets in neighbourhoods and you will have a key part to play in leading the development of new strategies and proposals for green spaces, parks and libraries.

We require the new Strategic Director to continue to improve outcomes for all of our residents. We will look to you to forge closer links with our key partners and investors, and take advantage of collaborative opportunities that are available. Leading sustainable improvement within the Council’s Medium Term Financial Strategy will be critical, ensuring that we continue to deliver value for money across our services whilst improving outcomes for residents.

Rotherham has all the ingredients for a fantastic career move. We have a good service in place and we need an outstanding Strategic Director to join our close knit and high performing leadership team. If you have ambition, drive and tenacity as well as an unwavering commitment to delivering services for Rotherham which focus on economic regeneration whilst at the same time ensuring we keep neighbourhoods safe, clean, green and well maintained, then we would like to hear from you.
