About the Role

We are looking for an experienced professional in risk and assurance to work with our Corporate Leadership Team and business units to lead the delivery of effective risk management, assurance controls and governance processes.

You can offer insight and skills in best practice so our policies are aligned, and you have the communication skills to drive the correct outcomes.

You bring a practical approach to risk and assurance management and are willing to work closely with staff across the council to help them understand their role in lifting risk maturity at Council.

Because you will be leading Risk and Assurance across the Council Group, we will be looking for your willingness and ability to work across both.
