A message from the Leader

Thank you for your interest in applying for these brand new positions.

These pages contain a host of information, which we hope encourages you to tell us why you are the perfect candidate for the roles. This is a unique opportunity to join us here at Caerphilly County Borough Council at an exciting time for the organisation as it moves forward.

Caerphilly county borough has long-since been recognised as an area where partnership working between the public, private and voluntary sectors means more than just words. We are key partners in the Cardiff Capital Region City Deal and we are excited with the far-reaching opportunities that this investment, underpinned by mature partnerships with the public, private and voluntary sectors, will bring to the county borough and region as a whole.

The council continues to deliver quality services to its 180,000 plus residents, despite a number of challenges. As budgets tighten however, and as a forward thinking local authority, we are embracing a brand new strategic programme of ‘whole authority’ transformational change, #TeamCaerphilly – Better Together which will be delivered through a new operating model for the way we’ll provide our services in future.

Central to this programme of transformational change is our new mantra of ‘Social Heart and Commercial Head’. This recognises our commitment to public service and the needs of our citizens, while also demonstrating our desire to explore new innovative, commercial opportunities where appropriate, to generate additional income to reinvest in services to help them remain resilient.

These roles will be pivotal in helping shape this journey of transformation, and it is therefore important that the successful candidates can measure up to the vision and innovation that we share, in order to take this organisation forward for the good of the people of Caerphilly county borough.

I wish applicants all the very best, and look forward to receiving your application for the positions in due course.


Cllr Dave Poole - Leader of the Council
