Argyll and Bute is a place that offers you success – in work, lifestyle and growth. We have towns, villages and 23 inhabited islands. Our fantastic landscape has inspired songs and music, our local businesses, schools and food and drink are award–winning; and we have an opportunity for you to play a valued and vital role where you matter, and can make a difference.

If you are an inspiring, effective leader we would love to hear from you, and make working for Argyll and Bute work for you.

As a key member of the Senior Leadership Team, you will help to plan, develop and implement business strategy and resource and deliver the IJB's strategic objectives sustainably and in the public interest. You will undertake the role of "proper officer" for the administration of the Integrated Joint Board's financial affairs in terms of Section 95 of the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973.

You will also be accountable to the Integration Joint Board for the planning, development and delivery of its three year financial strategy and be responsible for the provision of strategic financial advice and support to the Integration Joint Board and Chief Officer.

A welcome awaits

As one of our Heads of Service, you will join, and have the support of, an enthusiastic, supportive Senior Leadership Team. You will work with skilled health and social care professionals. You will make a difference that matters, to both the people you work with and for.
