With around 1.2 million residents and an economy worth £35.9bn a year to the UK, we’re expecting Hertfordshire’s population to grow by 175,000 people over the next 12 years, creating new demands on our infrastructure and resources.

This is a key post within the Resources Directorate and will underpin our collaboration with partners such as land owners, developers and District councils. We want to be known as an organisation that is open for business.

Our new Chief Legal Officer will work closely with every Department, responding to new ideas with creativity - identifying options and choices to achieve excellent commercial outcomes whilst ensuring the very highest standards of governance.

Our legal service is well respected and looking to play an even greater role within the council and beyond and we are looking for a passionate, highly experienced and influential legal professional to lead the service into the future.

As the County Council’s Monitoring Officer, you will pride yourself on your standards of governance and probity but above all, you will enjoy thinking outside the box to help us deliver our ambitions.
