I’ve seen the future and it’s Norwich*

Could you lead an organisation with a £120m turnover? Be a custodian of £1bn-worth of assets including 16,000 council houses? A creative manager who inspires a workforce of hundreds? A broker of public partnerships and an entrepreneur?

If so, you could be our new Chief Executive and the person who strives for our 2040 vision. It’s a chance to shape a modern, creative city with a rich heritage. A city that has the National Centre for Writing plus a strong and growing digital sector as part of a diverse economy. And let’s not forget the two universities, two cathedrals, premiership football team and successful business improvement district.

As our new Chief Executive, you’ll be a strategic, visible and an approachable leader. You’ll contribute and nurture a culture for economic investment, strengthen partnerships and collaborate with our public and third sector networks to deliver a city that works for everyone.

Norwich is one of the fastest growing cities in Britain so you will need to be a key influencer in the urban agenda nationally, regionally and locally.

Inclusiveness will be part of your DNA. You’re commercially sharp, politically savvy and skilled in the complexities of managing a city council that’s ambitious and forward thinking. Our success is built on our relationships with our councillors. If you can harness and shape their political ambitions and inspire our people and diverse partners, apply and make your talents count.
