Job role
Chief Executive
Contract Type
Full time

Surrey is one of the most important places in the country. Home to 1.2 million people and a very desirable place to live, it makes a significant economic, political and cultural contribution to national life. Surrey County Council and our partners in the public, private and voluntary sectors are committed to working as ‘One Team’ to achieve the best possible outcomes for our residents.

The imminent retirement of our current Chief Executive means we
are now looking for another outstanding individual to help lead our
organisation through the next phase of our journey. We have achieved
much over the last eight years and the current fiscal climate continues
to bring us further tough challenges. It also brings tremendous
opportunities to create a sustainable and self-sufficient organisation.
We are determined to cast the net far and wide across the public,
private and not for profit sectors to find the very best possible candidate
for this demanding role at the heart of public life.

The highest levels of leadership capability and proven organisational
change will help us continue to build an organisation that will be an
exemplar of local government performance, innovation and efficiency.

If you think you have the qualities and experience to take on one
of the most significant roles in local government, please visit and for a confidential discussion, please call
our advisers Martin Tucker or Greg Hayes at GatenbySanderson on
