This is a crucial time for our city and for the council. Bristol has a proud history of innovation and enterprise and this same spirit needs to drive the way we work if we’re truly going to build a better Bristol that includes everyone in the city’s success.
We are therefore redefining our role to better serve the needs of the city and, as part of that, we are recruiting for a number of senior management positions.
This is an opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of people in Bristol. The ideal candidates will of course have the appropriate technical expertise for their roles – but that’s only part of what we’re looking for.
Our city is a place with limitless potential. We want candidates who can help unleash this. They will understand that working for Bristol City Council isn’t just about providing a service – it’s about reinventing our role to enable and empower communities and individuals.
Our city is connected. We’re a UNESCO Learning City, the UK’s smartest city and have received various accolades, all of which wouldn’t have been possible without our many different partners uniting behind them. We want candidates who are accomplished at connecting and inspiring others.
Our city has been described as the best place to live in the UK. We want candidates who understand the people of Bristol, who can empathise with the desires and needs of our diverse population.
But our city also faces major challenges. While there is much we can celebrate, the reality for many is that inequality persists and prevents them from flourishing. We want candidates who are passionate about tackling this head-on, with a burning desire to build a better Bristol for everyone.
If you are, or you know, someone who fits the bill – who has the skills and the compassion to drive a city of hope and aspiration – then we want to hear from you. All the information you need can be found on our recruitment site and I’m looking forward to meeting people who share our vision.
