doina cornell.jpgThank you for your interest in becoming Chief Executive of Stroud District Council. Stroud district offers a rich blend of world-class business, industrial heritage and beautiful countryside. We pride ourselves on the diversity of our landscape and our market towns, our political independence, and our care for the people who live, visit and work here.

As our current Chief Executive retires after 17 years in the role, there is an exciting opportunity here. An opportunity to tackle some significant projects, leading a council that has built a reputation for innovation and excellence. Yet also an opportunity to benefit from established expertise, knowledge and support.

We have proved that we can deliver projects that gain national awareness, acclaim and award-winning status. As a team, we believe that our next phase of investment can help us to reach that level again. Our goal now is to grow as a community, building better infrastructure, improving quality of life and making a difference to the people who live, work and visit here, every day.

So who can help us do that? To put it simply, we’re looking for someone we can trust. Trust to manage our investment effectively; trust to deliver diverse projects to the highest standards, trust to help shape our future in the right way. A leader who takes others with them, rather than a leader who leaves others behind.

If you would like to find out more about this role, we would very much like to talk to you about it. Good luck with your application.

Doina Cornell
Leader of Stroud District Council
