We are looking for somebody exceptional to shape the future of Surrey.

Our new Leader and Chief Executive have big ambitions for Surrey and this role is key to achieving these. Leading a large and complex Directorate of skilled and committed professionals, you will be responsible for a revenue budget of £160m and a capital programme of over £1 billion. This new post will have the resources and the backing to make the difference and deliver at pace and scale. An opportunity unparalleled in local government.

Working collaboratively with Surrey’s eleven Boroughs and Districts, our LEPs and closely with colleagues, you will help shape our economic vision. You will develop and deliver our new infrastructure and major capital works programme to enable good growth and make Surrey a better place for our residents.

A commercial and entrepreneurial outlook is key, as are your skills for collaboration. You will be joining a focussed, committed and exceptional Leadership Team and will play a key role in delivering one of the most significant transformations in local government.
