Executive Recruitment

Welcome letter from Cllr Rob Bird

Thank you for your interest in this exciting opportunity to be the new chief executive of Tewkesbury Borough Council.

We’re an ambitious and dynamic council offering unique opportunities for an exceptional leader who will share our commitment to working with our communities and businesses. Already one of the fastest growing districts in the country, our two major Garden Communities projects present a unique challenge; a golden opportunity to lead on shaping a flourishing and prosperous future for this beautiful and well-connected area.

Placemaking is at the heart of what we do. Delivering our vision will require your exceptional leadership skills, drive, ambition and creative organisational management, as we work hand in hand with our communities and businesses to develop our borough and enhance the lives of those who live within it, whilst protecting our historically significant heritage.

Our vibrant and thriving district is a mix of rural communities, historic towns and more modern urban developments, and our landscape is filled with areas of outstanding natural beauty. Our excellent strategic location at the heart of the M5 corridor means Tewkesbury Borough is also the ideal place for economic business and growth. Our Council Plan builds on these geographical advantages, prioritising actions to drive growth, prosperity and community cohesiveness. 

Our creative and motivated staff are key to delivering our customer service ethos. Investing in and supporting our workforce is really important to us, and we are looking for a chief executive who shares these values. 

We are keen to hear from both serving and aspiring chief executives, as well as senior leaders in other fields, and I hope this brief introduction to what we are about will encourage you to find out more.

On this site you will find detailed information about the post, the council, and the borough, as well as details of how to apply. If you would like to have a confidential discussion about this post, please contact Seb Lowe at our executive search partners, GatenbySanderson on seb.lowe@gatenbysanderson.com.
