To provide effective leadership for all aspects of the Academi Wales function, working with leaders across Welsh Public Services to improve organisational performance and build management and leadership capacity. Working to the Minister for Housing and Local Government and First Minister, it will take the lead on the cultural and behavioural development of One Welsh Public Service and setting the direction for Leadership and Management Development within the legislative context and the Programme for Government within Wales.
Through the team, the role develops and sets the public service leadership development agenda for Wales, working across Welsh Government, the Public Sector and the Third Sector. It is a very busy and varied, mostly externally, facing role which requires the postholder to develop and nurture high trust based and collaborative relationships with senior leaders across the whole of Wales. There is a significant opportunity over the term of the post to shape the One Welsh Public Service leadership agenda and to develop the Academi Wales function, its cross sector engagement and delivery work programme in its current field – but also more widely.
The role also provides professional leadership and organisational development expertise, offering advice, consultation and mentoring to both leaders and their organisations. It is supported by the Academi Wales Advisory Board which comprises representatives from the most senior levels of public service.
The role also has responsibility for the national reputation and impact of Academi Wales, working with other home nations on progressive development agendas on matters of public service leadership, building and maintaining relationships with the Scottish Executive, Greater Manchester and the Cabinet Office Centre for Public Service Leadership.
