Introduction from the Interim Chief Executive

I’m pleased that you have taken the time to give consideration to these brand new opportunities to join Team Caerphilly at what is a very exciting time of transformational change.

Our new operating model #TeamCaerphilly – Better Together has a very clear purpose: to create capacity and foresight to develop solutions to some of the county borough’s biggest challenges, ensuring that the council understands and responds to the changing needs and priorities of our communities.

To achieve this, we must be bold and brave and able to anticipate future opportunities and be ready to make the most of them. These roles will be instrumental in helping make this journey of transformation a reality.

For the Transformation Manager – Innovation role, I am looking for an individual who can bring an innovative, optimistic and creative approach to the role; someone with fresh ideas and a passion for bringing about positive change for the benefit of our communities.

You will be astute politically, as well as a strong communicator and inspirational leader, who takes a modern approach to team working, customer service and change management. The successful candidate will also have great tenacity to see projects through to their conclusion.

You will need to take an innovative, strategic perspective, supporting us as we think about the future and how our county borough will look in the next decade and beyond. The challenge is big but the opportunities to re-purpose and re-shape the council and the county borough are even greater. This role will be a key ambassador and advocate for our council with our public sector partners, the third sector, our business community and our citizens.

For the Transformation Manager – Commercial Investment post, I am looking for an individual who can bring a high level of commercial acumen and the ability to act and think strategically. You will have strong influencing and negotiating skills and an ability to assess and manage risks in order to maximise opportunities for the council.

You will be astute politically and have the ability to work proactively and independently to deliver successful income generation initiatives. The successful candidate will also have strong programme and project management skills to ensure that projects are delivered in a timely manner, using high levels of judgement and sound decision-making.

You will need to take an innovative, strategic perspective, supporting us as we think about the future and how our county borough will look in the next decade and beyond. The challenge is big but the opportunities to re-purpose and re-shape the council and the county borough are even greater.

I hope you share our enthusiasm for this exciting journey of transformation and I look forward to receiving your application to join us here at Caerphilly County Borough Council.
