Thank you for your interest in this leadership role at the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.  From my perspective, the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead is a truly unique location – and it is critical that we appoint a Managing Director who understands why this is such a compelling opportunity.


Being a Royal Borough means that we are naturally high profile and we are often in the international spotlight via state visits, royal weddings and being the constituency for the Prime Minister. The council plays an active part in all this work and is integral to it.


Our borough is about much more than that, Ascot, Maidenhead and Windsor is home to 148, 000 people who present a diverse range of needs. From commissioning and managing services through suppliers to delivering a £3bn regeneration programme with a range of housing initiatives, we are dedicated to working differently and exploring new ways to deliver the infrastructure and services that every one of our residents deserves.


It’s an exciting time, in a unique location. Moving forward, visible leadership is a vital component in our development. As we look to deliver significant change over the next decade, you will have the opportunity to shape our vision. You will progress complex, large-scale projects, build outstanding partnerships and embed a culture of empowerment, embedding an outcome focussed culture and determination to innovate at every level.


Good luck with your application!


Cllr Simon Dudley

Leader of the Council
