Council departments

Fife Council is structured, together with the Chief Executive, into six main directorates and each directorate is led by an Executive Director:

The Executive Directors join the Chief Executive to form the Council Management Team (CMT).  Together they are responsible or translating the Council’s policies and plans into action.

They lead and encourage staff to develop services and improve delivery for the people of Fife.

Meeting every week, the CMT regularly develop new policy, review and challenge performance, lead on service improvements and develop partnership opportunities to help us deliver as effectively as possible.

They monitor our use of resources and make sure the Council stays on track both in terms of our priorities and our spending.

In additional to their responsibilities for the services they lead, Executive Directors each have an overall role as champion for a key policy area, such as health or sustainability.  Together, they and the Chief Executive constitute the corporate management of the Council.
