Working Pattern

Dudley Council has challenging plans to develop its approach to Commercialism. We are looking for an experienced Manager to support the new Chief Officer and to take the lead for the Councils sales and revenue generation.

Hours:  37 per week

These are exciting times at Dudley. As a Council we are committed to doing things differently, maximising our income, and ensuring that we offer services that are attractive to our customers. This is a new role and we are looking for a unique blend of a commercially minded public servant to support us to deliver our vision.

You will lead our Traded services to schools and help us to improve the administration, analysis, reporting and most importantly the viability of sales. Your challenge will be to ensure sustainability, to protect and grow sales to support the delivery of vital public services, which in turn will support the financial challenges the Council faces.

You will help us to roll out our new trading platform and will engage with internal and external stakeholders. You will also support the development of income generation and commercial activities from other service areas, in particular B2B.

You will be our sales lead, taking responsibility for our Sales Plan, marketing, and costing, ensuring that all sales are viable (as a minimum are full cost recovery). You will directly lead a small team and matrix manage other sales functions across the Council.

In short, we are looking for a commercially driven individual that is passionate about delivering excellent public services to join our exciting new Commercial and Procurement service.
