Welcome to our website where you can find out more about our city and how you could play a key role in shaping its future as the Assistant Director, Marketing and Communications within Customer and Support Services.
Salford is a vibrant city of transformation, ready to grasp the range of opportunities provided by the development of MediaCityUK and other regeneration projects. The council and its partners work closely to realise the city's ambitions and aspirations.
Over 225,000 people are proud to call Salford their home and I believe they deserve the best services we can provide. 53,000 of the city's residents are children and young people under 19 years of age. We expect these numbers to increase in the future as regeneration brings new residents into the city.
The financial challenges facing the public sector are significant and unprecedented, and as a result a new approach is necessary. Here at Salford City Council we have a strong track record of financial stability and we have made good progress in finding the savings required this year and planning for those needed over the next three years.
This is a crucial role at a critical time. Reporting directly to myself, you will be responsible for accountancy, financial services, audit, risk and procurement as well as playing a major role across the council. In addition to being financially astute you will have the skills to develop a superb customer service.
We are looking for candidates with the skills to develop new delivery models, the ability to champion innovation, and the will to find creative solutions. You will be a qualified accountant with a strong understanding of local government as well as the drive and ambition to make a positive difference to Salford City Council and its communities.
So if you have the passion and determination to drive improvement, an excellent understanding of current financial issues and a track record of success at a senior level, I want to hear from you. Salford has an exciting future in store and you will want to be part of it.
