Dawn Baxendale, Chief ExecutiveThank you for your interest in our vacancies.  Birmingham is a place with an impressive past and its citizens deserve an impressive future. 

Birmingham is going through a renaissance, seeing tremendous growth and regeneration. The city is hosting the 2022 Commonwealth Games, but this is just the start. The Games is a stepping stone. We also have HS2 and a significant economic growth agenda in the West Midlands.

Birmingham City Council is very much on a journey of improvement.  We are getting the council’s finances back on track and we will continue to work with partners and peers on this, as I am determined to return Birmingham to its rightful place within the local government family.  

Now I am looking to enhance the team that will help me and the politicians to transform the council and we are determined to get the right people in place.

You need to be excited by the opportunity and you need to understand that you are coming in at the beginning of a journey and it is going to be hard, hard work.

So if you are excited by one of our opportunities and want to make a positive difference every day to the lives of the people who live and work in Birmingham, please apply for one of these roles and be part of our team.
