Welcome

Thank you for expressing an interest in working for YPO.

Within local authorities and the wider public sector, substantial changes are taking place and with the pressure of delivering more for less, the way in which we deliver public services needs to be more efficient and cost effective to sustain future demand and to help the UK recover from the current pandemic and impact of Brexit.

Like our customers, the organisation is implementing some revolutionary changes that span many areas of the business, achieving greater efficiencies and creating a solid base for future growth. Nevertheless, these plans to transform YPO have not altered the core values on which it was founded; the organisation’s commitment to achieving the best value for every public organisation remains and continues to set it apart from competitors.

On the journey towards providing more sustainable public services, we are committed to partnering with other public sector organisations and private sector partners to achieve benefits for the communities across the UK. Through centralised initiatives and collaboration opportunities with YPO, we are demonstrating how this can result in significant procurement savings, greater innovation and enhanced value.

As we move into the next phase of the organisation’s growth, we are seeking an Executive Director Finance and an Executive Director Operations to join our Executive Board. The successful applicants will bring significant leadership experience in a similarly complex organisation and help us achieve our growth ambitions in the UK and internationally.

In return we offer you the opportunity to work at the cutting edge of public sector reform and to use your skills to help generate the dividends that we, as member authorities, re-invest in critically important front line services.
