Welcome

Dear Candidate

Many thanks for your interest in this important role.

Pembrokeshire is one of Britain’s special places, combining some of the most spectacular coastal scenery with a unique cultural heritage. Nearly a third of the county is in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park – the only coastal national park in the country, and its numerous beaches are renowned as being amongst the finest anywhere. This all makes us a particularly attractive area in which to live and work

Pembrokeshire County Council serves over 124,000 residents with a wide range of valued public services that touch and enhance the lives and wellbeing of each and every resident in ways that are both impactful and insightful. What we do - matters.

With an annual revenue spend of £230m and a workforce of over 5,000 staff, we are Pembrokeshire’s largest employer and one of its leading businesses and catalysts for growth. Our vision is “Working Together, Improving Lives” and our part in achieving this vision is set out in our Corporate Plan, focused upon making the most of our natural advantages and make Pembrokeshire an even better place to visit, live and work.

We are seeking an ambitious and dynamic Chief Executive to lead the Council through post-pandemic recovery and into the next phase of development for our county. As Head of Paid Service, you will be responsible for leading, motivating and inspiring our workforce to achieve the strategic aims of the Council. You will be responsible for ensuring that we deliver the highest quality services for Pembrokeshire residents, delivering excellence and value for money. You will act as an ambassador for the County, representing Pembrokeshire across Wales and the whole UK.

To be successful, you will need to demonstrate strong operational grip, innovation and creativity. You will also bring a determination to address the challenges that we are facing.  Your leadership style will inspire and energise our workforce and give renewed confidence to all that our Vision is being realised. There is clearly much to do.

If you feel that you have the skills and the track record required and can combine this with a real sense of ambition for the council and the county, we would love to hear from you.

Best wishes

Councillor David Simpson
