Can you make a difference to the Leisure and Cultural Services in Redditch?

Redditch Borough Council has recently established a wholly owned Company to provide its sport, leisure and cultural services to the residents of Redditch and beyond. The newly established company is at the start of its journey, playing a pivotal role alongside the council and its partners to transform participation in sport and culture and making a real difference to people’s lives. The company will get more people, more active, more often – in the full range of opportunities ranging from the Leisure Centre to the Theatre. We are looking to recruit a Managing Director who is equally passionate about our ambitions for the contribution that culture and sport can play in the regeneration of our area, and who has the skills to play a strategic role in a place-based partnership.

Reporting to the Board of Directors, you will provide leadership, vision and direction to shape and develop the company’s strategic plans and deliver on its key priorities and outcomes.

A team player, committed to public sector values, you will have the ambition, experience and skills to lead and develop a business which delivers accessible, high quality services for the people of Redditch. You will have the vision and inspiration to lead and motivate a professional team and a proven track record at a senior level of developing and implementing strategies and plans to achieve business goals and objectives, along with an understanding of the commercial aspects of the role. Experience of successfully managing significant organisational change and development, including leading multi-disciplinary projects, will be a key requirement for the role. A track record of success in a senior leadership role within the cultural and/or leisure sector is also considered critical for this post. It goes without saying that the Company needs a true leader who, with the team, can drive the Company forward through vision and innovation, setting standards along the way and building sustainable relationships, both internally and externally. We need someone who is not afraid to make hard decisions when required and someone who advocates change to ensure those decisions are bought into and delivered at all levels.

To apply for this position you must have an appropriate professional qualification and at least five years’ experience in a senior position. Experience of working in a senior role that reports directly to Shareholders / Directors would be advantageous.

The closing date for receipt of completed applications is Monday 24 September 2018. The selection process to be held during the first two weeks of October.
