Council seeks to fill £120,000 post
The search has begun for a new £120,000-a-year senior director at Bath and North East Somerset Council.
The authority is advertising for a new Strategic Director – Place after the resignation of Glen Chipp, who is leaving for a new job.
The experienced former businessman is moving from the wide-ranging post – in charge of everything from museums to roads and rubbish collection to planning – to become chief executive of Epping Forest Council in Essex.
The recruitment advertising for the job says B&NES is looking for someone with "an innovative approach to delivering improved services with less money" who will "challenge silo thinking" and have an "inspirational and inclusive leadership style".

The advertisement – in the Sunday Times – concludes: "You will also have good commercial and political awareness, a readiness to embrace change and manage risk, and the ability to operate and thrive in tight financial constraints."
On the plate of the new director will be a number of challenges, from the future of The Rec to tackling the city's congestion and pollution.
The role being advertised is one of three strategic directors reporting to the council's new £150,000-a-year chief executive, Jo Farrar.
