Competitive Salary

We do things differently in Sutton. We don’t just talk about engagement and collaboration - we do it. We know that effective resident engagement and sustainable partnership working will deliver high quality services to meet our residents’ needs and aspirations. Our residents and partners tell us that our desire to listen and to share ideas is authentic and meaningful and that we share the same values.

We are prepared for the future; our ambitious growth agenda will deliver affordable, high quality new homes and boost local economic development. We are well known for our vision for an environment which will see our ecological footprint reduce to a sustainable fair level.

The Council’s partnership with the Royal Marsden and the Institute of Cancer Research and our commitment to develop a world class centre for cancer research, treatment and drug discovery will make a difference to the lives of people living in our borough and across the UK for generations to come.

We are proud of our longstanding relationships with schools and our children’s services including a ‘Good’ Ofsted inspection rating and consistently strong outcomes for vulnerable children. Our focus on prevention extends to adults’ services and we enjoy excellent relationships with our health partners, making good progress towards the integration of health and social care services.

We believe that such important agendas require exemplary leadership. Our new Chief Executive will recognise that the wellbeing of our residents and greater equality of opportunity can only be achieved by deepening and strengthening relationships beyond the Council. Your desire to play a leadership role spanning organisational boundaries and your ability to inspire people will lie at the heart of your success in leading our borough to be the best that we can be.
