Do you have what it takes to transform a new organisation?

We aim to become a world changing organisation that delivers exceptional customer experiences and lifts our ambitions. We are undergoing a Transformational programme of change at the same time as creating one new council, named Somerset West & Taunton, which will cover the area currently administered by Taunton Deane Borough Council and West Somerset Council. With this change comes the unique opportunity to wholeheartedly transform our ways of working and we are recruiting to a leadership team that will help us move from a traditional service-based structure to a borderless and flexible way of working that is fundamentally aligned to our priorities of people, place and prosperity.

We are seeking a strategic leader with the expertise, skills and desire to shape and deliver our ambitions in Business Intelligence and Performance.

In this newly created role you will be responsible for driving our performance management framework, including the client management of key contracts and partnerships, and the control of our ongoing business design integrity. You will also develop our business intelligence ambitions and support service improvements across the council. Working closely with the Strategic Board, your role is to develop our “roadmap” for how the Council will hold and manage data in the future and ensure we use our data and information to aid decision making, identifying trends, and supporting forward planning. You will also develop and deliver our new performance and risk management approach, drive best practice and bring renewed focus on performance management that is aligned to our new approach and ambitions.

We are excited to hear from individuals who understand the power of data and business intelligence and have a track record in delivering performance management and business improvements. This is a strategic and influential role that provides real time information on how the council’s services are performing and holds the organisation to account.

If you have the innovative leadership, drive, expertise and vision required to transform and improve our organisation, we would like to hear from you.
