Yes? Then West Lancashire Borough Council needs YOU!

We are looking for an exceptional individual to join our team and make a real difference now and into the future. This is a newly created role; it is unique, ambitious and reflects our passion to deliver a positive customer experience and make a positive impact locally. The person we appoint should be equally unique, ambitious and committed to ensuring that West Lancs is the best it can be. With a Salary package of up to £37,306 and a 36 hour week based in Skelmersdale, this is a great place to work.

We are looking for a leader that can inspire, engage and communicate effectively at all levels; someone who understands the importance and need for compliance legislation, especially in regards to Water Hygiene, Fire Safety, Asbestos Management, Electrical and Gas Safety and who shares our values and ambitions. The successful candidate needs to be driven by excellent performance and results and is always looking for ways to improve service and build on success.

At West Lancs Borough Council we develop our staff and nurture their talent; we see this role as a potential opportunity for someone who wants to progress in this field. It provides a unique opportunity of leading a busy, hard-working team with the added responsibility of highlighting, addressing and implementing change in areas of non-compliance. This is a fantastic opportunity to gain wider experience; work with some great colleagues and be part of an amazing team that has set some ambitious goals for the future.

Every day will be different with lots of variety and challenges. This role is perfect for someone who has an eye for detail, loves to lead, influence and shape change but is also equally happy to get their hands dirty to ensure we deliver.
