Welcome

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

It’s a time of change at the Council: Andrew Johnson has just taken on the role of Council Leader; and I became Managing Director in February 2019. So we are exploring new ideas and reviewing current ways of working to identify opportunities for improvement and efficiency. These four roles will each play a key part.

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.

These four roles cover a range of services, so we expect candidates to bring expertise in their specific professional areas, but it’s equally important that our senior colleagues bring a collaborative and outward-facing approach to their work. We want to build 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
Managing Director
