Director of Corporate Services

Welcome letter - Chief Executive

Thank you for your interest in the Director of Corporate Services role here at Portsmouth City Council.

I've been the Chief Executive here at Portsmouth for more than 12 years - which I think stands as a testament to all that the organisation has to offer, on both a personal and professional level. The council is a welcoming, collaborative organisation, full of passionate and committed people, and the city has much to offer outside of work - including award winning cultural attractions, great shops and restaurants and a beautiful seafront.

Adventurous, ambitious and innovative, our council is committed to making the city we serve fairer for everyone. As our shared goal states, we're striving to build a city where the council works together with thriving communities to put people at the heart of everything we do.

This newly created role will have an essential role to play in delivering that shared goal. As well as leading a team of experts in a range of areas including IT, digital, communications, HR, Legal and democratic services, you'll have an essential role to play in shaping the future of the whole organisation.

If you're looking for a chance put your ambitions to good use and make a difference to our city, we'd love to hear from you.

David Williams
