Our management team

Our council is structured into three main service delivery business units: Communities, Place, and People, which are supported by a central suite of core services including:

  • Human Resources, Performance and Communications
  • Finance, Assets and Information Services
  • Legal and Governance

Public Health services are also part of the council structure.

Our senior management team (SMT), is led by Diana Terris, the Chief Executive of Barnsley Council.

SMT is responsible for making sure that policies approved and decisions made by councillors are implemented effectively.

Issues that go to SMT that require a political decision then go onto Cabinet, and where necessary onto a meeting of Full Council.
