Welcome from the Executive Director of Adults & Housing

Dear Candidate,

Thank you for expressing an interest in becoming part of the new adults & housing leadership team at Dorset Council. This role presents an exciting and unique opportunity to develop a modern unitary authority that’s in touch with our communities; one that will build a 21st century economy and deliver quality services efficiently. How that happens will be down to an extraordinary team of leaders, which could include you.

It is our ambition to create a unitary that is digitally innovative, organisationally entrepreneurial and focused on outcomes and performance, which delivers high quality services at a low cost. Dorset Council works to a one team ethos. Each and every one of us has a part to play in making Dorset a great place to live, work and visit.

As a member of the senior leadership team, you will be a strong team player, a transformational leader and performance orientated. A strategic and critical thinker, you’ll play a key role in developing the Dorset Council values and culture. Your strong collaborative working and engagement skills will enable you to ensure the best delivery of services for the people of Dorset, and lead your functional area through transformation.

If you’d like to be part of this evolving journey and you have the vision, drive and experience to achieve our ambitions and deliver on our commitments, then we look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,

Vivienne Broadhurst
