At Dudley Council we have a ‘one council' ethos that builds an effective and dynamic organisation which grows the economy and creates jobs, creating a cleaner and greener place and supports stronger and safer communities.

We are rightly proud to be the historic capital of the Black Country and, working with our partners, Dudley Council is also committed to looking forward and helping to deliver our borough vision of ‘Forging a Future for all'.

As service lead for a new Programme Management Office, the postholder will play a crucial role within the newly formed Chief Executive's Office.
