Welcome

Thank you for your interest in this key leadership role here at the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.

This is a great opportunity to take on a highly influential role within the council that will support effective decision-making and governance as part of the Council’s political process. Part of the Council’s leadership team, the Monitoring Officer and Deputy Director of Law and Strategy will be a key corporate leader within the organisation. It’s a great career opportunity for someone who is attracted by the opportunity to build a new team and enhance the strategic and corporate capacity of a high profile council.

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead is a truly unique location. Windsor Castle, Royal Ascot and Eton College all sit within our boundaries. And being a Royal Borough means that we are naturally high profile - often in the international spotlight via state visits and other major events. The council plays an active part in planning and co-ordinating these events to ensure all who visit the borough enjoy a great experience.

Our Borough is home to 148,000 people who present a diverse range of needs. From commissioning and managing services through suppliers to delivering a £3bn regeneration programme with a range of housing initiatives, we are dedicated to working differently and exploring new ways to deliver the infrastructure and services that every one of our residents deserves.

While we are looking for someone with a legal qualification, this role goes far beyond that of a senior legal professional. This is a great career move for someone who relishes a professional challenge and who wants to extend their corporate leadership credentials. You'll be part of a team with shared values, that supports and challenges to get the best from one another, and who is committed to delivering great outcomes for the people of our borough.

Good luck with your application!

Duncan Sharkey
