Here in Harborough District, we offer a rich blend of international businesses and superb market towns surrounded by rural Leicestershire. We pride ourselves on the diversity of our landscape and our excellent transport links to other parts of the UK. Our vision is to put the people at the heart of the place, whether they live, work or visit here, through a healthy, inclusive and engaged community that is enterprising and vibrant.

As we continue to drive forward into new ways of working and large scale projects, we now need two inspirational leaders to join the corporate management team and provide strategic direction over a range of services.
