Job Description

Chief Executive (PKC07431)
2 High Street, Perth

When it comes to your next executive leadership role, Perth and Kinross presents a compelling mix. Our ambitious economic development plans are harnessing the innovation and creativity of our area – capitalising on our natural assets, our great connections and the talent and potential of our community to shape a sustainable and prosperous place for all. We’re making major investments in our education facilities, our cultural scene is ready to spring back to life as soon as restrictions allow, and the Tay Cities Deal will be a catalyst for further growth.

It all comes together to create what we call: the Perth and Kinross Offer.

Our new Chief Executive will be an inspirational and motivational figure who can harness the full potential of all that Perth and Kinross can offer – drawing on the talents and commitment of the Council and its partners to achieve our ambitious plans for the future. We’re putting local voices at the centre of it all – listening to our community to understand what matters most. We now need an accomplished and capable organisational leader who shares our values and our passion for this great place and who can translate great ideas into great outcomes.

Previous applicants need not apply.
