Thank you for your interest in this vital leadership role at Perth and Kinross Council.  Our new Chief Executive will join us at a crucial time for our organisation and for our community. There are plenty of immediate priorities as we continue to manage the impact of the current public health crisis, putting in place the measures that will support our community’s economic and social recovery. But we’re also looking further ahead, and there is a great deal to be excited about, and a great deal to do.

We want our new Chief Executive to be someone with a passion for people and place, and who shares our values and ambitions. That means treating everyone with kindness, compassion, dignity and respect and doing all we can to tackle inequality. We want to create a more sustainable and stronger Perth and Kinross and we are ready to be bold and courageous in our investment in infrastructure and in the economy to ensure that everyone is encouraged to ‘live life well’.

You’ll discover a team of talented and dedicated colleagues, who continually apply a positive mindset to our work, focusing on what can be done. And with collaboration and communication engagement at the centre of how we work, you’ll also draw on the wider resources and talent across Perth and Kinross, working in partnership with others to achieve outstanding outcomes.

I look forward to working closely with the new Chief Executive. Their contribution will be critical to the co-creation and delivery of public services that tackle poverty and inequalities, grow the economy, tackle climate change, enhance education and learning and support adults and older people to lead healthy, active independent lives. 

The Council has engaged Solace in Business to support this important appointment and Evelyn Dougherty is the lead consultant. I encourage you to contact Evelyn on 020 7976 3311 to find out more about the role and its requirements.

Good luck in your application.

Leader of the Council
