Chief Executive

Wyre is a great place to live, work, invest and visit. Located on the Lancashire coast, with Preston, Blackpool and the Lake District nearby, the borough of Wyre is an area of great contrasts and includes urban areas, seaside resorts, traditional market towns and picturesque villages.

We are a unique council, where ambition and progressive ways of working continue to push boundaries. Our vision is clear ‘Together we make a difference’ and across the council our staff strive to make this difference for businesses and residents within the borough.  We are also serious about climate change and recently became the first Local Authority in Lancashire to be awarded the Bronze level Carbon Literate Organisation and we continue working towards making council activities net-zero carbon by 2050.

A borough full of opportunity, we are seeking to appoint a Chief Executive that will provide strategic leadership to drive forward economic growth and prosperity that is within our grasp and provide strategic leadership of the Council’s vision and corporate objectives, embracing new ways of working.

If you are an exceptional, inspirational leader and a strategic thinker with highly developed skills who has the desire and determination to enable us to capitalise on the huge opportunities within our borough then we want to hear from you.

The successful candidate will have the ability to operate with a high degree of political sensitivity and have the ability to establish and maintain collaborative working relationships with businesses, Elected Members, Central Government and public sector agencies in a professional credible manner.
