Welcome

Welcome from Cllr Terry Fox, Leader and Kate Josephs, Chief Executive

Thanks for your interest in this key role at Sheffield City Council.

Sheffield is a proud, inclusive city of immense potential. It is a fantastic city to live, work and play but it is not without its challenges.

We’re building our top team to be a force for change to take these challenges head-on. We’re connecting better with our communities, working collaboratively across our organisation and with partners and stakeholders, always learning from best practice and striving for excellence.

You can see from our One Year Plan how ambitious we’re being for our city – empowering our communities, looking after people’s wellbeing and education, building our local economy, improving transport and achieving sustainability.

This is a really exciting time for us as a council. We have a new Co-operative Executive made up of Labour and Green councillors. Following a referendum last year, we’re changing over to a new system of executive committees. And at the same time we’re pushing power downwards through our seven new Local Area Committees, so people will have a louder voice in how their communities and their neighbourhoods develop.

If you feel you have the experience, the personality, the humility as well as the drive, the open-mindedness as well as the ideas, to help us make all this happen and deliver great results for this wonderful city and its lovely people, we want to hear from you. 

Cllr Terry Fox, Leader
