Our management team

Our council is structured into five directorates:

  • Communities
  • Place
  • People
  • Public Health
  • Core Services

Our senior management team (SMT) is led by Sarah Norman, 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.

You can find an overview of the council structure and details of our senior management team.
