Faaborg-Midtfyn Municipality is seeking a Group Executive Vice President, who will be in charge of meeting the municipality’s growth ambitions.


The prospect of an annual salary on the good side of the million will surely tempt many, but hardly anyone translates the interest into an application.

This applies to the position as Executive Vice President of City, Country, Culture and Labor Market in Faaborg-Midtfyn Municipality. There is an application deadline Monday, June 5th, and the municipality has hired consultancy firm Muusmann to assist in finding the right man – or woman – at work, which becomes vacant when Bettina Høst Poulsen resigns on 1 August.

Expectations for the new director are high. The person gets a key role when the municipality’s development strategy of four percent more citizens by 2030 has to be completed, but does not need to move for that. The Director does not get a residence permit but must be present when needed. This applies to the town center plans in Faaborg and Ringe, and this applies to area renewals in other municipalities. In addition, the director must contribute new thoughts on how more citizens come to work or education, especially when it comes to young people and in the integration of refugees and family reunions.

In addition, the vacancy shows that the person concerned will have management experience and be able to show results from management in politically managed organizations and from major conversion processes. It is also an advantage with experience from one of the disciplines in charge, but there is no condition.

Municipal Director Helene Bækmark has already talked to several about the position, but will not interpret anything about the interest from it.

“Experience shows that many applications can be reached immediately before deadline, and from applicants who have not announced beforehand,” says Helene Bækmark.

The new Executive Vice President is part of the municipal executive board with municipal director Helene Bækmark and CEO Louise Thule Christensen (Growth and Learning, Health and Care).
