Thank you for your interest in joining
Blackburn with Darwen Council.

Thank you for your interest in a senior leadership role at Blackburn with Darwen Council.

Our high performing unitary authority has received the top accolade in the sector three times in the past two decades, alongside many other service awards. We pride ourselves on our high standards, always focused on delivering an exceptional response to any challenge faced by our communities.

You will join us following a forward thinking re-set of the senior leadership team, setting a balanced budget and agreement of clear corporate priorities.

They all help ensure that we are resilient and reflect our ambition to further drive forward positive change as we support our residents, communities and businesses to recover from the significant impacts that Covid-19 has had on the borough.
You will need to inspire and provide strong leadership in a political environment. In return, I can guarantee you my wholehearted support to directly and significantly change lives for the better. The borough’s motto translates as ‘By Skill and Hard Work’ and this grit and determination is strong in our many partnerships which make this one of the most rewarding places to work in the country. Colleagues past and present will confirm there is something special about the place.

Please see the personal message from me (below) and also the Strategic Directors you will be working with to deliver the very best services - Paul Fleming for Resources and Jayne Ivory for Children and Education.

We look forward to receiving your application. I am available to speak to you about these roles alongside Paul and Jayne.

All the very best,
Denise Park, Chief Executive
