Gillian Morrison

Executive Director - Gillian Morrison.

We are here to provide support to all the Council’s services in achieving the Council’s key priorities as set out in the Council Plan, and the delivery of quality statutory services. We primarily provide specialist advice, guidance and support to the Council’s services through our Legal, HR, IT, Performance, Community Planning and Buildings and Facilities teams, and we are also here to provide some services direct to people such as registration of births, marriages, civil partnerships and deaths, catering and cleaning. We also provide an Internal Audit service and host the Change Programme to help all services plan for the future, working with our customers to design and deliver the efficient and quality services they want for the future.
