North Yorkshire County Council continues to drive forward its ambitious plans for transformation. We face challenges balancing the need to make large-scale efficiencies with our plans for modernisation and growing demand for our services.

We are now looking for a professional, influential Assistant Chief Executive to drive change, help define our future direction, influence key stakeholders and support service improvement in Legal and Democratic services and across the breadth of the authority.

As well as being responsible for legal and democratic services the postholder will be the statutory Monitoring Officer for the council, with responsibility of being the council's moral compass, ensuring high ethical standards and the ability to ensure we 'do the right thing' as an organisation. You will probably already be managing a legal service across a wide range of disciplines in a complex organisation and have experience of working with elected members.

You will have a clear vision of success, a passion for significant challenges and a track record of delivering highly respected, robust legal and democratic services.
