Dudley is the proud historic capital of the Black Country. The borough enjoys quirky traditions, a gritty industrial heritage, nationally-recognised tourist attractions and outstanding nature reserves. We serve a diverse population who can display an astonishing mix of warmth, honesty and challenge. Add in the Dudley humour and the borough is a great place to call home.

We are an ambitious authority that is committed to delivering our vision to ‘Forge a Future for all’ through working on a longterm plan with our partners and the communities we serve. Together we will grow the economy and create jobs, create a cleaner and greener place and support stronger and safer communities.

It is an exciting time to work in Dudley as we embark on numerous multi-million pound regeneration schemes. Alongside this we have the ongoing challenges of ensuring vulnerable residents receive the services they deserve, especially in the current unique times. We are immensely proud of our staff, partners and residents who continue to provide unprecedented services, support and friendship during the ongoing Covid crisis.

We are looking for an experienced strategic leader who thrives on heading up a portfolio of functions. You will deliver high-quality and cost-effective services that are developed and improved through successful customer and stakeholder engagement.
