North Tyneside Council

Head of Law and Governance


North Tyneside is a great place to live, work and visit, with a range of housing, great schools, strong transport links and a fabulous environment that connects country, river and award-winning coast.  As a council we punch above our weight, and we have an Elected Mayor and Cabinet with clear ambitions for the Borough.  Together, we are determined to deliver high performing local services and make a success of our communities and economy, and with an agreed Local Plan there is a fifteen year vision for how the Borough might look in the medium to long term.  The creation of the North of Tyne Combined Authority is another exciting development which will enable closer collaboration and synergies across the sub-region.

Following the retirement of an experienced colleague we are looking for a senior leader to join our team.  We are recruiting a new Head of Law and Governance (and Monitoring Officer) who can support the day to day running of a local authority, contribute to delivering our strategic plans, offer expert advice, and operate successfully in a dynamic political and commercial environment.  The role reports to the Chief Executive and will play a leading role in the future of North Tyneside Council.
