Introduction from Chief Executive

Thank you for your interest in the role of Chief Executive at Sandwell Council.

We are looking for a permanent Chief Executive who can build on the positive changes that have already been made in Sandwell over the last year, and capitalise on the opportunities that lie ahead.

The Sandwell Aquatics Centre was the only new venue built to host the Commonwealth Games. It was delivered on time and on budget by the council with our construction partners, and is now being turned into a state-of-the-art community leisure facility. We now want to use this as a springboard for our ambitious regeneration plans.

We are hugely aspirational for our communities, and are looking for a candidate who can drive forward continued improvements and maintain the focus on providing high-quality services for our residents.

We hope you find the information on this site useful and look forward to hearing from you.


Kim Bromley-Derry, Managing Director Commissioner                Cllr Kerrie Carmichael, Leader of the Council
