Welcome from Cllr Andrew Day
(Leader – Warwick District Council)

We are committed to working together to create a single statutory South Warwickshire Council by 1 April 2024, covering all of the services currently delivered by Stratford-on-Avon District Council and Warwick District Council and addressing some of the key issues facing South Warwickshire, including the climate change, the economy and housing.

We have a strong base on which to build, having  already achieved success through collaboration between both councils; on the South Warwickshire Health Improvement Partnership; the South Warwickshire Crime Reduction Partnership and Shakespeare’s England, our destination management organisation which we jointly founded to promote our local tourism offer around the World. There are similarities between the two councils, a shared economic geography, and a shared sense of community between the two authorities and many of our residents live in one authority area and travel to work in the other.

During the past year, both Stratford-on-Avon District Council and Warwick District Council have been working together in a number of areas to respond to the coronavirus pandemic in the wake of substantial losses to income and budgets. This is coupled with the ambition of both Councils to protect, improve and expand the valuable services provided to residents and businesses across South Warwickshire.

We are optimistic about the future and need two ambitious, energetic and passionate people to join us on our journey; a Head of Finance (S151) and Head of Development. These are exceptional opportunities where you can really make a difference and support us with achieving our ambitions.  Both roles will join the senior management team and play a key part in shaping the future strategic direction of the Council

Take a tour of the site and find out more about the roles themselves, what’s on offer and what it’s like to live and work in Stratford and Warwick district .

Welcome from Cllr Tony Jefferson

Stratford-on-Avon District Council has just established its vision for the next decade, and we are delighted to be working with Warwick District Council to appoint someone to lead our ambitious Head of Development Services.  The Council has ambitions to develop both itself and the communities that we serve and therefore this role, is critical to achieving this vision. You will oversee an investment programme under our Joint Local Plan, which has moved at pace during the current pandemic. This role is also an integral part of our senior team which, collectively, will be leading on the delivery of our ambitions.
