Job Description:

£90,000 - £99,000

Job Introduction

We have a great opportunity for a senior Public Law professional with a track record of board-level leadership to join the West of England Combined Authority as our Strategic Director of Legal Services.

The Combined Authority has entered a new phase following the election of the new Metro Mayor, Dan Norris, in May 2021 – and we are looking for someone who is enthusiastic, driven and conscientious to be a key part of our Senior Leadership Team and deliver our new ambitious agenda.

This role acts as the Authority’s Statutory Monitoring Officer, ensuring robust legal governance is applied to all key decisions, so a public sector or local government background and a keen understanding of the legal and constitutional environment in which the Authority operates would be beneficial.

You will be an effective and inspirational leader for a small team, leading the Legal and Democratic Services function to provide sound legal advice to the Authority – including its constituent Councils – while having overall accountability for the running of the democratic process in a transparent, accessible way.

You will embody our values in everything that you do in the role: working creatively, collaborating with and supporting colleagues and stakeholders, and bringing ambitious vision to the Authority.

If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you. For an informal conversation with our Chief Executive Patricia Greer, please contact Patricia’s PA Lorraine Cook on 0117 332 1495 or Lorraine.Cook@westofengland-ca.gov.uk  to arrange a time.
